Slides, Notes

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.

The meeting room and refreshments during the DevSummit will be sponsored. The dinner afterwards will have to be paid by the attendees (at the dinner).
