FreeBSD Developer Summit, September, 2018

This page describes the September 2018 FreeBSD Developer Summit, colocated with EuroBSDCon 2018, which takes place in Bucharest, Romania. 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 EuroBSDcon 2018 in order to access all devsummit activities.

Schedule

The FreeBSD developer summit takes place on the 20th and 21st of September on the same days as the EuroBSDCon tutorials. Many developers will arrive on the night of the 19th and meet for dinner and drinks before things kick off. 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're doing.

Dinners

- Thursday: Dinner at the restaurant Potcoava (the one on Splaiul Independenței 301, Bucharest), which will have sharing platters (starters, main course, and a dessert) for vegetarians and meat lovers.

- Friday: Dinner at restaurant Vanity. Similar arrangement, plus live music.

Payment: 40 EUR or 185 RON for each night. This includes food and drinks (yes, also alcoholic drinks). In Romania, it is not common to have the concept of splitting up the bill. To make it easier for the restaurant staff, you, and for us to pay after each dinner, we ask that you pay 80 EUR or 370 RON in total for both dinners up-front on the first day of the devsummit at the registration desk. Again, this covers all the food and drinks, including alcohol.

Max number of dinner attendees: we reserved tables for 40 people. If you want to bring someone along, let the organizers know in advance.

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 July 2018 (perhaps sooner).

Developer Attendees

Please register for the conference on https://2018.eurobsdcon.org/registration/ and buy the appropriate FreeBSD devsummit tickets.
