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.
