Verisign Announces vBSDcon 2015

May 1, 2015 1 comment

Verisign has recently announced the dates for a second vBSDcon to occur September 11 – 13, 2015 in Reston, VA. vBSDcon is technical, BSD-based conference for users, developers, engineers, and innovators working with BSD-based operating systems such as FreeBSD, OpenBSD, NetBSD, and more…

The program is being expanded in 2015 to colocate a FreeBSD Developer’s Summit the day preceding main conference activities. Additionally, space will be allotted for use of Hacker Lounges and Doc Sprints. These self-moderated sessions are open time during the off hours of the conference for use by members of all the BSD communities to collaborate and work on varying projects.

The inaugural vBSDcon was a resounding success and included speakers from the FreeBSD and OpenBSD communities.  It also featured prestigious sponsors including The FreeBSD Foundation, who is returning as a Developer Summit sponsor in 2015, RootBSD, Daemon Security, iXsystems, HP, Juniper, and CDW.
