FreeBSD mini-Developer Summit, February 2019

This invitation-only FreeBSD Developer Summit takes place the day before FOSDEM 2019, located in Brussels, Belgium. FreeBSD committers are welcome to register themselves; non-committers have to be sponsored by a committer to attend.

FOSDEM 2019

FOSDEM 2019 takes place on February 2nd and 3rd, 2019. Note that the FreeBSD mini-developer summit is organized independently from FOSDEM. The FreeBSD Foundation has agreed to sponsor parts of this mini-devsummit. Consider making a donation to help support events like this.

Travel Information

The FOSDEM Practical page has a lot of information about how to get to Brussels for FOSDEM.

Notes

If you are in trouble with preparing your slides, you could use the template attached to the page. It contains a LaTeX source file that you can modify to create PDF slides for the FreeBSD Developer Summit. It uses the Beamer class which is an easy-to-use extension to LaTeX for making presentations. You can easily install it by the following command (as root):

# pkg install latex-beamer

This will install Beamer and pdfLaTeX that can be used for compiling the sources to produce the desired PDF file.

$ pdflatex my-presentation.latex

Or you can use the LibreOffice / OpenOffice template (contributed by BaptisteDaroussin).

A few rule-of-thumbs when creating slides:

Contact devsummit@FreeBSD.org if you have questions or problems.

Registration

In order to attend, you must register in advance using our registration system; this allows us to size rooms, order food, provide beverages, and make dinner reservations. 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.

The meeting room and refreshments during the DevSummit will be sponsored. We collect a small fee rom attendees to help cover the costs. The dinner will have to be paid by the attendees themselves (at the dinner).
