FreeBSD Developer Summit, March, 2018

This page describes the March 2018 FreeBSD Developer Summit, colocated with AsiaBSDCon 2018, 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 2018 in order to access all devsummit activities. Consider making a donation to the FreeBSD Foundation to support this effort.

Schedule

The FreeBSD developer summit will take place on the 8th and 9th of March on the same days as the AsiaBSDCon tutorials. Many developers will arrive a few days before the event to get rid of jet lag 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.

First timers to Japan will get a lot of information (sightseeing, getting around, etc.) from this guide. Make sure to contact people who have been to AsiaBSDcon in previous years for some helpful information. Tourists with a bit of experience and/or who are adventurous might want to check out unmissablejapan.com.
