Reports are starting to trickle in from those who attended last week’s EuroBSDCon. Robert Watson notes that the FreeBSD Developer’s Summit was the largest yet in the EU with around 70 attendees. And, despite the poor economy, attendance for the conference was up at about 180 attendees, and the dinner sponsored by iXsystems sold out at 150 with a waiting list.
You probably know that the FreeBSD Foundation provides travel assistance for developers to attend conferences. If you’ve ever attended a BSD conference yourself, you have experienced first hand the value in networking with both committers and BSD users.
