After a three-year hiatus, NYCBSDCon is back on February 8, 2014 as a day-long event with the theme of "The BSDs in Production."
We are confirming a variety of speakers, and encourage potential sponsors to contact us at info AT nycbsdcon DOT org to partake.
With a focus on the critical roles the BSDs do and can play in infrastructures, NYCBSDCon promises to be an important event for the technical community in the New York metropolitan area and beyond.
As with past NYCBSDCons, the cost will ensure the event is accessible and filled with an array of meetings and discussions reflecting the living and breathing world of the BSDs.
The location will be at Suspenders Bar and Restaurant located at 111 Broadway just above Wall Street in downtown Manhattan. The event has the entire facility reserved until the evening, and will be a self-contained conference with food and beverages onsite.
There is an array of hotels in Manhattan for those traveling from afar.
The BSD Certification Group (BSDCG) is pleased to offer the BSDA certification exam on the day after NYCBSDCon. The one-day conference occurs on Saturday, February 8, and the exam will be conducted on Sunday, February 9.
The exam will be paper-based in English. Exam information is available from the Certification page of the BSDCG website. Exam candidates should be proficient in the BSDA Certification Requirements and the Command Reference, both of which are available for free download from this page of the website.
Participants need to register for a BSDCG ID. Once you have a BSDCG ID, you can choose an exam location and pay for the exam. The exam price is $75 USD and payable through Paypal or credit card. The exam will be held at:
10:00 AM at 147 Prince St., Brooklyn, which is close to the DeKalb Ave. (B,Q,R), Jay St. (A,C,F), and Hoyt St. (2,3) stations.
