2016 BSDCan Trip Report: Trent Thompson 2016 BSDCan Trip Report: Trent Thompson Sabine Percarpio 07/18/2016

Spending a week in Canada with a large group of BSD hackers was not what I had expected, but in a good way. I have gone to a few information security conferences in the past, but they do not compare to the knowledge gained, and fun I had that week.

2016 heralded my return to BSDCan after a 4 year hiatus. In part, I was inspired to return this year, after I took some holidays in France back in February. I had the distinct pleasure, that weekend, to have supper with just about all the Paris based FreeBSD committers.

This was my first time visiting Canada and the biggest FreeBSD event. I met FreeBSD Project founders and had a chance to speak with almost all of the people I worked with last year. I also gave a presentation about the FreeBSD/RISC-V project (in the developer summit track) covering its status, goals reached, plans for future, etc.

The FreeBSD Foundation is pleased to have partnered with the FreeBSD Project’s Release Engineering team and Microsoft to help bring FreeBSD to the Azure Marketplace. Microsoft is not creating their own version of FreeBSD, but instead upstreaming changes at the kernel level to enable network and storage performance enhancements.

My name is Michael W Lucas. I’m originally from Rochester, Michigan, USA, a little farm town outside Detroit, Michigan. As a kid, I’d bike past the grain elevator and see the great big pallets of Purina Monkey Chow next to the train tracks. When I asked my dad about them, he sent me out into the woods and fields to find the monkey farm.
