The FreeBSD Foundation has sponsored my trip to MeetBSD 2016, which took place in Berkeley, CA. I attended the FreeBSD developer and vendor summit on November 10th and MeetBSD on November 11th and 12th of 2016. I would like to use this opportunity to thank the entirety of the FreeBSD Foundation for making it possible for me to attend with the travel grant. I would also like to thank Michael Dexter for his aid in finding a roommate for me and providing information.
