NYCBSDCon - February 8, 2014

On behalf of the conference organizers, speakers, sponsors, and attendees, we would like to thank everyone for making NYCBSDCon 2014 a great success.

Countless people are involved in creating NYCBSDCon, from the audio/visual setup to pulling their workmates to the event. Our conferences would not be possible without each and everyone of those contributors.

The presentation videos are available on YouTube.

The final accounting was (finally) completed for NYCBSDCon 2014, and we managed to raise $1109.25 for each of the four BSD projects. Since we aim to break-even, it's a remarkable feat for us to actually make a profit. The donations are slowly being distributed, and stand as follows:

  • DragonFly BSD: via Paypal!

  • FreeBSD: check is in the mail!

  • NetBSD: NetBSD donation!

  • OpenBSD: Receipt confirmed!

NYCBSDCon was a day-long event with the theme of "The BSDs in Production." With a focus on the critical roles the BSDs do and can play in infrastructures, NYCBSDCon lived up to its billing as a premier event for the technical community in the New York metropolitan area and beyond. The day was filled with an array of meetings and discussions reflecting the living and breathing world of the BSDs.

Held at Suspenders Bar and Restaurant located at 111 Broadway just above Wall Street in downtown Manhattan, the event saw the entire facility packed to capacity until the evening, and was a self-contained conference with food and beverages onsite.

Here are some post-event posts from the internet:
