iXsystems will be hosting this year’s MeetBSD California, at Western Digital located in San Jose. This “unConference” will take place on November 1-2, 2014.
MeetBSD California is the premier BSD conference in the San Francisco Bay Area. Since its inception in 2008, MeetBSD California has been held every two years in Silicon Valley, bringing together BSD community members from all over the region and around the world.
Previous settings for MeetBSD California have included the Google and Yahoo! campuses and the Hacker Dojo in Mountain View. This year’s venue, the Western Digital campus in San Jose, will remind attendees that the hardware BSD runs on is just as important as the applications it can run.
Matt Rutledge, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Storage Technologies for WD, said “Open Source technology continues to be key to the future of scalable, maintainable computer systems, and groups like those that develop the BSD operating systems are a key part of that ecosystem. We’re thrilled to welcome the BSD community to WD for MeetBSD 2014, and look forward to the open, collaborative innovation they represent.”
