The next EuroBSDCon trip report is from Daichi Goto: Thank you for the great support of my journey to EuroBSDCon 2011 and the FreeBSD DevSummit 2011. It was a great experience. Thank you again.
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).
The following project update was written by David Chisnall who received a grant from us to implement xlocale APIs to enable porting libc++. We’re pleased that the project is almost completed! It’s traditional to start this sort of thing by telling you who I am.
The FreeBSD Foundation is pleased to announce that Swinburne University of Technology’s Centre for Advanced Internet Architectures has been awarded a grant to implement DIFFUSE for FreeBSD.
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.
The FreeBSD Foundation will be providing a limited number of travel grants to individuals requesting assistance. Please fill out and submit the Travel Grant Request Application by September 5, 2011 to apply for this grant.
This year I had the privilege to attend BSDCan 2011 thanks to the generous sponsorship of the Foundation. I was invited by Erwin Lansing to participate in the Ports Workgroup by presenting the project I am working on with Julien Laffaye: pkgng.
