BSDCan 2018 has just passed…

and our thoughts turn to maybe we should have a meeting.

I was talking to Diane at the conference and perhaps we should make this a more technical event rather than social. I’m not sure where we should start, but the fine people at the BSD Foundation passed me an InstallFest kit, so the first meeting of the soon to be revised and resurrected group woould be to install FreeBSD on either an appropriate device or at least a VM running on your laptop.

I’m thinking July, and we may wish to have a different night rather than the second Thursday. I’ll post to the mailing list. This will also require us to use a different venue, so depending on the number of people who will be attending, that will make a difference in where we go. I can book a meeting room that can handle about 10 people, so if we get that many, I’ll be pleasantly surprised. I’ll also have some 25th anniversary stickers from the FreeBSD Foundation to hand out as well.

June Meeting: 2017-06-08 @ 18:00

As was sent to the mailing list, we should have a meeting this month as it is BSDCan time. 

This meeting will be at The Red Lion, not at Café Colonnade.

BSDCan 2017 is nearly upon us

As BSDCan is around the corner, we should have a meeting just to see who is still kicking around locally.

I’m thinking May 11, 2017 at the usual location, see the Meeting Location item above for details.

Next Meeting August 11 2016

Due to popular demand, we will be having an August meeting.

There are two possible topics from the last meeting, BSD on the Raspberry Pi 3 and on the Pine64. Feel free to bring additional questions, ideas, hardware, etc.
