2016 BSDCan Trip Report: Trent Thompson

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 BSDCan Trip Report: Thomas M. Abthorpe

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. 

2016 BSDCan Trip Report: Ruslan Bukin

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.
