"BSD: No Hype Required."

The Berkeley Software Distribution (BSD) is a free open source version of the Unix operating system which evolved at the University of Berkeley starting from 1975, and it is based on AT&T's Unix Sixth Edition (V6). The name BSD is now used collectively for the modern descendants of these distributions. Most notable among these today is perhaps the major open source BSDs (FreeBSD, NetBSD, OpenBSD) which have themselves spawned a number of children. They are targeted at an array of systems for different purposes and are common in government facilities, universities and in commercial use. A number of commercial operating systems are also partly or wholly based on BSD or its descendants, including Apple Computer's Mac OS X.

The purpose of this one-day event is to gather Central European developers of today's open-source BSD systems, popularize their work, and provide an interface for real-life communication. There are no formalities, no papers, and no registration or participation fee, however the invited developers are encouraged to give a talk on their favorite BSD-related topic, then have a beer with the other folks around :) The language of this event is English, and the goal is to motivate potential future developers and users, especially undergraduate university students to work with BSD systems.

This year's BSD-Day has been held in Budapest, Hungary at Eötvös Loránd University, Faculty of Informatics on November 20, 2010.

Schedule

The format was technically a mixture of a cross-project developer summit and a workshop. We had invited developers working with BSD from different organizations, we had some dinners together, and dedicate various sessions to each of the topics based on the interests of the attending developers. The format of these sessions was quite flexible: they included presentations or demonstration of results, or even public discussions with developers involved, or a mix of all of these.

We had two different schedules: one for the participants and their guests and one for the public part of the summit. The former is mostly about the summit in general, while the latter is the interest of casual visitors of the BSD-Day.

Closing session

We had reserved room D-0.803 (Szabó József) at Eötvös Loránd University, Faculty of Informatics for the event, it was available all day, including the toilets nearby in the building.

For Participants

Sessions

Each session slot was 30 minutes long.

Note to Leaders

For preparing the slides, you could use the template attached to the page. It contains a LaTeX source file that you can modify to create PDF-based slides for the session. It uses the Beamer class which is an easy-to-use extension to LaTeX for making presentations. Then pdfLaTeX can be used for compiling the sources to produce the desired PDF file.

$ pdflatex my-presentation.latex

A few rule-of-thumbs when creating slides:

Catering

There were a lunch, drinks, and snacks arranged for the summit around the Eötvös Loránd University. The breakfast and the lunch were on-site at ELTE in room D-1.817. During the breakfast and lunch the following drinks were available. (Breakfast and lunch costs were covered by the organizers.)

Breakfast

A breakfast was served from 09:00 to 10:00.

Lunch

A lunch was served from 12:00 to 13:00. The list of the compiled menu was as follows.

Dinners

We had a welcome dinner arranged for the participants at Tranzit Art Café from 19:00 on Friday, and there was a closing dinner at Trófea Grill Újbuda from 19:00 on Saturday. The latter was served in smorgasbord style and paid by the organizers as a gratis.

For Visitors

Registration

As a visitor, you could register yourself for the event by filling in a registration form. Here you needrf to specify an email address (among other things) so you will be able to receive further information on the event.

Workshop Booklet

There can be also found an A5 format booklet for the event here. For the sake of cost efficiency, we did not provide this booklet at the event, but it might be used by the visitors. It needs to be printed in A4 format two-side and folded into two then attached in the middle.

Wireless Network Access

There was a University wireless network available dedicated for the event with SSID of "bsdday2010" from 09:00 to 17:00. The password for the network was published at the event.

Accommodation

If you decided to stay in Budapest on Friday and Saturday night, we can recommend you the following places to book a room. All of them are close to the site of the conference, so you can reach it quickly. The prices are around 50 EUR per night, depending on the time of booking.
