vBSDcon: September 11 - 13, 2015

Hi all,

vBSDcon is a technical conference for the various BSD communities that is
hosted by Verisign for users and developers of BSD-based systems.  vBSDcon
2015 is being held in Reston, VA from September 11 - 13, 2015 at the
Sheraton Reston hotel.  vBSDcon is an ideal event for systems and network
administrators, developers, and engineers with a focus on BSD-based
technologies.  The early bird registration rate of $75.00 is available
through August 13, 2015 at

The vBSDcon program is a single track conference with plenary talks and
unconference activities like Birds of A Feather sessions and Lightning
Talks and, as a bonus, we are hosting The FreeBSD Foundation to operate a
one-day FreeBSD Developer¹s Summit on September 11, 2015.  Speakers from
across North America and Europe will cover the topics below during plenary

vBSDcon provides space for a hacker lounge and doc sprint open to all BSD

more.  The space is unmoderated so you can setup in these spaces following

projects or documentation while away from the office.
