Developers were welcome to invite guests to attend the developer summit, subject to their tolerance for ceaseless hours of kernel hacking, and availability of space at the venue.

Proposed Topics

Here is a brief listing of various proposed topics were presented and partially discussed at the summit. The format will be a short presentation by the leader, followed by questions and discussions by the group. I'm hoping that these discussions can be driven more by the developers and guests present than by the presenter

Note to Leaders

If you were in trouble with preparing your slides, you could use the template attached to the page. It contains a LaTeX source file that you can modify to create PDF slides for the FreeBSD Developer Summit. It uses the Beamer class which is an easy-to-use extension to LaTeX for making presentations. You can easily install it by the following command (as root):

# pkg_add -r latex-beamer

This will install Beamer and pdfLaTeX that can be used for compiling the sources to produce the desired PDF file.

$ pdflatex my-presentation.latex
