FreeBSD Developer Summit, May, 2019

This page describes the May 2019 FreeBSD Developer Summit, co-located with BSDCan 2019, which will take place in Ottawa, Canada. 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 BSDCan 2019 in order to access all devsummit activities.

Sponsors

Our annual BSDCan developer summit would not be possible without the generous support of sponsors.

BSDCan

BSDCan provides logistical support, including organizing rooms for the event and for developers to stay in. BSDCan also covers board and travel for BSDCan speakers. FreeBSD developers can help support the summit by speaking at BSDCan. You can also help support BSDCan and the developer summit by encouraging people to attend the conference, and especially to attend tutorials.

IRC

Many of the developer summit attendees hang out on #devsummit on EFnet during the summit (as well as BSDCan itself).

Live Streaming

Many of the developer summit sessions will be live streamed from papers.freebsd.org.

Schedule

The FreeBSD developer summit will take place on the 15th and 16th of May on the same days as the BSDCan tutorials (sorry!). Many developers will arrive on the night of the 14th and meet for dinner and drinks before things kick off. Most developers will stay on through BSDCan 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.

Detailed Schedule

Working group sessions will be held on Wednesday and Thursday. A two-day hackathon covering various projects will be held in parallel on Wednesday and Thursday. All rooms other than the hacking lounge will have AV equipment.

The Desmarais Building (DMS) is located northwest of the Residence building on Laurier Avenue.

Please arrive by 8:45am for the morning sessions so that we can get started around 9:00am. Attendees will be able to pick up badges and T-shirts from 8:00am to 9:00am at DMS 1160 on Wednesday and Thursday.

The bottom floor lounge in the U90 Residence Hall will be used as the hacker lounge in the evenings.

The dinner on Wednesday evening will also be in this room.

Note: In order to attend a working group meeting you MUST contact the working group organizer and be approved to attend. The goal is to keep each working group small and focused.

Lunch will be served in DMS 1160 on both Wednesday and Thursday.

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. Advance preparation for such events is critical so everyone comes to the table with the right reading done so you can get to the meat of the matter.

Travel Information

As this event is colocated with BSDCan 2019, all information on the BSDCan web page applies. Here are some suggestions that may make planning easier:

Arrival date

14th May 2019

Departure date

19th May 2019

Travel method

If traveling from outside Ottawa, fly into Ottawa's international airport (YOW), possibly transferring in Toronto (YYZ). Air Canada partners with United Airlines, and has direct flights from many US cities and London Heathrow (LHR) as well as Frankfurt (FRA) into Ottawa.

Visas

Many attendees will be able to use the Visa Waiver program, but check before traveling. If you need a formal invitation letter (never hurts), let us know. Non-Canadian/US citizens who are visa-exempt need an Electronic Travel Authorization when flying into Canada.

Where to stay

Accommodations have been sorted for BSDCan. Go to the BSDCan Accommodations page. Please watch the expiration dates for the various rates and book as early as possible.

Extra rooms to share at the university residence halls

Remember that you must separately register for BSDCan (even if you are a BSDCan speaker); visit the BSDCan web page for details.

To/from Ottawa International

Public transport

Bus line 97 from Airport to Bayshore & Bells Corners. Runs about 3-4 times per hour. Bus-stop is right in front of the Airport building at the far right.

Bus-stop Campus is temporarily closed for road-works, you'll have to use the uOttawa/Laurier stop at the Bus Station. TBD, need to check on status for this.

Tickets: can be bought at the "Info" desk in the Airport building, to the left of the entrances. Paper tickets for bus fare has been retired. Instead a per ride fee is in place that is $3.50. See this page for additional information.

Mobile 3G/4G SIM cards

Rideau Centre is a short walk from the University of Ottawa Campus. There's a large number of shops (brand shops and independent) where you can get a SIM Card. In general you'll have to pay for the SIM-card separately (ca. 10CAD) plus the plan you want.

At the WirelessWave, I managed to talk the lady into giving me the SIM for free with a Fido 150MB plan for 10CAD. YMMV...

Information on Prior Developer Summits

Information on prior Developer Summits is available from the DevSummit page.
