BSDCan

March Meeting: 2014-03-13

Thursday will be the second Thursday of March and that makes it meeting night.

Topics:

  • Until May is over, BSDCan is a topic and registration is open.
  • I will be bringing a couple of small PC units with me. They were originally used for managing wall displays.
  • Anyone using Puppet? I have to get the details settled, but there will be a Puppet BOF at BSDCan 2014. Specifically, we will be moving the OCBUG meeting for May to the third Thursday and will be holding it at UofO in conjunction with the Puppet BOF.
  • Anyone using ZFS? I have not had a chance to look at this yet, but FreeBSD 10 is supposed to handle installation onto ZFS.

Other topics will be entertained.

 

BSDCan 2012 starts tomorrow!

Well… The conference itself anyway. The two days of tutorials are over, the initial pub night is complete, registration packs have been handed out and people have been seen in conference T-shirts.

There is still time to come out and register. Two full days of conference events as shown below:

May Meeting and BSDCan 2012

Just a reminder that May 10th is our next meeting. As this coincides with BSDCan, we will be having our meeting at the Royal Oak on Laurier near the University of Ottawa. This will be a very social meeting, as people from all over will be there as conference attendees. Come out and meet old friends and make a few new ones. Registration for the conference and registration packages handouts will also be happening at the same time.
