NYCBSDCon 2014 and FreeBSD Journal

nycbsdconNYCBSDCon is a bi-annual, one-day conference in New York organised by the NYCBUG BSD users group, with the theme of “The BSDs in Production.” The focus of the presentations is on the critical roles the BSDs do and can play in infrastructures.

Some may think the BSDs are slowly dying, but presentations given at this conference show quite the opposite. It’s interesting to see what Netflix has achieved with FreeBSD!

Last Saturday (8 Feb) NYCBSDCon 2014 took place, which according to the “My NCYBSDCon Trip” write-up by Justin Sherill (DragonFlyBSD), was a successful event.

It was nice the talks were broadcast live, and hopefully these will be published later.

The FreeBSD Journal was also announced by the FreeBSD Foundation last Saturday, and some paper issues (the only ones ever) handed out. The only way to get the Journal from now on is electronically via Google Play, Amazon Kindle or Apple iTunes.

I think the FreeBSD Journal website could do with an update to make this clearer, explain what the Journal is about, how to get it, and to take away some confusion. There has been a lot of useful information in recent interviews (BSD Now Episode 22, BSD Talk 237), but nothing of this is on the website (yet).

If I come across any pictures or other write-ups, I’ll share them here.
