[20080910] NYCBSDCon 2008, including a NetBSD developer's summit
From the website `` NYCBSDCon will take place over the weekend of October 11-12, 2008 at Columbia University in New York City.

The New York City *BSD User Group looks forward to hosting the conference again. Without doubt, it will once again be an exciting meeting place for *BSD users, sysadmins and developers from all the projects.

The Call for Papers closed August 1, and we received over 30 proposals for a mere dozen speaking slots. The conference schedule and speaker list will be posted shortly. [...]

Some notable planned happenings at NYCBSDCon 2008 include:

  • BSDTalk Will Backman will be live and at the conference interviewing speakers and attendees.
  • A BSD Certification exam will take place on Sunday. A number of quick Unix concept overview sessions are planned throughout the day for Saturday.
  • NetBSD will be hosting a developer's summit on Friday, October 10th, parts of which are open to all.
  • FreeBSD will also be hosting a get-together for developers.
  • We are in the process of setting up author book-signings.
Keep your eyes peeled for announcements. Registration will open in early September.
