FreeBSD Developer Summit, October 2015

Stockholm, Sweden. October 1 — 2, 2015.

This invitation-only FreeBSD Developer Summit takes place at EuroBSDcon 2015, located in Stockholm, Sweden. FreeBSD committers are welcome to register themselves using this wiki; non-committers have to be sponsored by a committer to attend.

EuroBSDcon 2015

EuroBSDcon 2015 takes place between October 1 — 4, 2015. All attendees are encouraged to attend EuroBSDcon, as well as present their work. The conference is located in Stockholm, Sweden (more details will follow). Remember that you must separately register for EuroBSDcon (but only if you are not a EuroBSDcon speaker); visit the EuroBSDcon web page for details where you can register.

(The information on this page is still subject to change; please check back for updates.)

Sponsors

The EuroBSDcon developer summit would not be possible without the generous support of sponsors.

EuroBSDcon provides logistical support, including organizing rooms for the event and for developers to stay in. EuroBSDcon also covers board and travel for all EuroBSDcon speakers. FreeBSD developers can help support the summit by speaking at EuroBSDcon! You can also help support EuroBSDcon and the developer summit by encouraging people to attend the conference, and especially to attend tutorials.

The EuroBSDcon DevSummit is hosted by init.se.

The FreeBSD Foundation covers travel expenses for several attendees. You can help support the FreeBSD Foundation by donating.

Travel Information

Approaching Sweden

Wikitravel has a lot of information about Sweden (transportation, things to see, do, and avoid). Another great resource is Virtual Tourist (make sure to check out the "More" column at the top). Both sites also have a lot of information about the city of Stockholm, so check it out.

The EuroBSDcon website also has some information regarding travel provided by the organizers.

Approaching the Event site

The DevSummit will be held in central Stockholm at this location (street name: Engelbrektsgatan 7). Look for a blue Init flag and an Init AB sign at the door bells (there are many other companies in that building) and enter the building. It says it's on the second floor (which is the third floor in american floor counting).

The easiest way to get to the summit is to go by public transport using the "Green" line in direction Åkeshov or Hässelby to subway station Hötorget. Take the northernmost exit from the subway station towards the exit called Tunnelgatan (eng. Tunnel Street). From station Hötorget it is an 8 minute walk, mainly through an old walking tunnel, to Engelbrektsgatan 7. If you choose to share a taxi from the conference hotel, the price will be approximately 30 euro.

To get from the conference hotel to subway station Hötorget you can use the route calculator at http://www.sl.se/en. Read more about transport fares under the menu public transport and taxi.

These directions can also be viewed at the main EuroBSDCon site.

Visas

Some attendees may need to apply for a Visa, please check before traveling. If you need a formal invitation letter (never hurts), let devsummit@FreeBSD.org know.

Rooms to share

IRC

Note that many of attendees of the summit hang out on #devsummit on EFnet during the event (as well as the conference itself). Feel free to join!

Prepaid SIM data

overview site. Stop by any Pressbyrån, 7-Eleven, COOP or ICA and get a Comviq Kontantkort Surf (data only) for 30/50/100/200 SEK for 0.5/1/3/10 GB data. Not clear yet if that includes the SIM-card itself (45 SEK).
Other options in the link.

Schedule

The developer summit spans three days (tentative), with a mixture of hacking, group meetings, and presentations. The first part takes place on October 1st—2nd on the same days as the EuroBSDcon tutorials, while the second part on October 3rd (tentative) runs in parallel with the main conference.

However, many developers will probably arrive by the night of September 30th and meet for dinner and drinks before things start. Most developers will stay on through EuroBSDcon to give and attend talks. It is an excellent conference — a good FreeBSD developer showing has countless benefits, not least the opportunity to tell the world what we are doing!

Rough Schedule

The current general plan is as follows. Note that this is a just rough schedule, please find the exact one further below.

Hacking Groups

These sessions are intended to get developers with common areas of interest or specific projects in mind together for collaboration and hacking. They might involve prepared presentations, structured code reading, or a notebook-assisted whiteboard session. Advance preparation for such events is critical so everyone comes to the table with the right reading done so you can get to the meat of the matter.

Submit your proposals to devsummit@freebsd.org which shall include an abstract and number of slots needed. (1 slot = 90 minutes) It also expected to do a brief presentation on the results in the Developer Summit Track on Saturday and send a write-up to hackers@freebsd.org.

(Submission is open, accepted proposals are added continuously.)

(Do not edit this section yourself unless asked to.)

Notes

If you are 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 install 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

Or you can use the LibreOffice / OpenOffice template (contributed by BaptisteDaroussin).

A few rule-of-thumbs when creating slides:

Contact devsummit@FreeBSD.org if you have questions or problems.

Registration

In order to attend, you must register in advance; this allows us to size rooms, order food, provide beverages, and make dinner reservations. We appreciate your cooperation in letting us know your plans well in advance of the event. Non-committers must be sponsored by a committer in order to attend.

REGISTRATION IS OPEN.

A registration fee is charged for all attendees in order to cover the costs of the summit (rooms, wireless internet access, snacks, drinks, lunch, use of A/V equipment, badge, shirt). This fee is 31.25 EUR per day.

The fee can be paid through the conference registration site where the summit is listed. (If you do not find it in the list contact us.) Do not set your registration status yourself, we will do that once your registration has been confirmed. Note that you have to pay separately for the organized dinners and social event. The DevSummit fee does not cover those. You have to register separately for these events and pay for them using the methods mentioned at the conference registration site.

Here is a list of the attendees and their guests at the summit.
