NYCBSDCon 2014 BSD Breaking Barriers

What makes the BSD operating systems special? Why should you deploy your applications on BSD? Why does the BSD community keep growing, and why do Linux sites like DistroWatch say that BSD is where the interesting development work is happening? We’ll cover the not-so-obvious reasons why BSD still stands tall after almost 40 years.

This is Michael Lucas’ talk at NYCBSDCon 2014

FreeBSD Participating in Google Summer of Code

FreeBSD is pleased to announce that once again we have been selected to participate in the Google Summer of Code program. This gives University students the opportunity to earn a $5,500 USD stipend in exchange for working on Open Source software over their Summer break. Students have around 12 weeks to work on their project, and will be mentored by existing FreeBSD committers. Participating organisations will earn $500 USD per student mentored.

FreeBSD’s organisation page may be found here and a list of possible project ideas may be found here. Please note that projects do not have to come from the ideas list, and indeed students are encouraged to produce their own project ideas – the majority of past projects have been thought up by the participants themselves. More details about FreeBSD’s participation in Google Summer of Code including contact details can be found here.

Students are also encouraged to visit the GSoC website to view more details of the program, including eligibility requirements, and a list of other participating organisations.
