FreeBSD Developer Summit, March, 2017

This page describes the March 2017 FreeBSD Developer Summit, colocated with AsiaBSDCon 2017, which will take place in Tokyo, Japan. This is a by-invitation event. FreeBSD committers will be welcome to register themselves using this wiki; non-committers must be sponsored by a committer to attend. Attendees must also attend AsiaBSDCon 2017 in order to access all devsummit activities.

Schedule

The FreeBSD developer summit will take place on the 9th and 10th of March on the same days as the AsiaBSDCon tutorials. Many developers will arrive on the night of the 8th and meet for dinner and drinks before things kick off. Most developers will stay on through AsiaBSDCon 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're doing.

Zstandard (zstd) compression

AllanJude

I give a short talk about zstd compression, which I hope to have integrated into ZFS by then, and will then be looking at integrating it into the bootloader, to replace gzip/bzip for MFSRoots (better compression and faster decompression).

Working 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.

Description

Slides, Notes

Continuous Integration

LiWenHsu

Progress report for the past year, internal system arch/code, and we should discuss the policy and roadmap. If there is still time, having a hackathon for people working on new CI jobs is probably a good idea.

Asian matters

LiWenHsu

Discuss topics related to Asia such as CJK, wide character support, and mirror service in Asia.

Embedded

EmmanuelVadot

Attendees

In order to attend, you must register in advance; this allows us to size rooms, order food, and provide beverages. 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. Due to increased attendance in recent years, companies are limited to one non-committer unless permission is explicitly granted by the organizers. Registration will start in February 2017.
