With IBM’s muscle behind LinuxTM and AIXTM on POWER, FreeBSD support has trailed. FreeBSD Committer Piotr Kubaj and several other contributors are fighting to change that and the FreeBSD Foundation is right there in the fight, providing Piotr a grant for a local POWER9 system to accelerate his work.
2020 brings about even more opportunities to spread the word about your work with FreeBSD. Submit to these upcoming conferences.
2019 has been our busiest year yet! We promoted, presented and ran FreeBSD workshops at 38 events around the world; committed over 1200 code changes; reviewed and provided feedback on 100s of other developer changes, and improved the continuous integration test pass rate by almost 100%! We were able to do this and more because of funding from people like you.
On behalf of the FreeBSD Foundation, thank you for all of your support in 2019. Take a minute to see what you helped us accomplish this year!
One of the major goals for 2019 was to focus on improving the software quality of the FreeBSD codebase and extending the features of the FreeBSD project’s continuous integration. This year, we examined the test results and the test cases carefully with the goal of zero false positives.
When Mahdi Mokhtari was a young student growing up in Tehran, Iran, he never thought FreeBSD would help him meet other people outside his home country, and that some of them would become as close as family for him, or that it would eventually lead him to leave the Middle East for a new life and job in Europe.
