Trip Report: Gleb Kurtsou

Thanks to the FreeBSD Foundation, I was able to attend the Developer Summit and EuroBSDcon’2011. It was my first Developer Summit. Two of my main goals were to popularize PEFS and meet in person people I communicate with via email.

Trip Report: Niklas Zeising

This year I had the privilege and pleasure to attend EuroBSDcon 2011 and the preceding Developers Summit. I have had plans to travel to earlier EuroBSDcon conferences, but have never been able to partly because of the cost.

The generous sponsorship of the FreeBSD Foundation for the first time allowed me to attend EuroBSDCon’11 as well as the associated Developer Summit in its entirety (so far I could only attend one day of last year’s EuroBSDCon Developer Summit).

Implementing xlocale APIs

The C standard library (libc) is one of the most important parts of a UNIX system as most programs interact with the kernel through interfaces written in C. Porting code between platforms with similar libc implementations is trivial and if something is supported by libc, higher-level languages can use it without being reimplemented.
