Spread the word . . .

The organizers of NYCBSDCon 2010 are proud to announce the final closing of the books for the November conference at Cooper Union.

The profits are being evenly distributed among the four BSD projects--DragonFly BSD, FreeBSD, NetBSD and OpenBSD--with each check totaling $3600. Most of the projects have already received their checks.

This is an enormous accomplishment for an open source conference, and signifies the commitment of the broad range of organizers from the New York City *BSD User Group and beyond.

The conference, the fourth one held since 2005, attracted a wide array of attendees, in addition to generous sponsors including, New York Internet, Isilon Systems, Marvell and iXsystems.

The fiscal backing of BSD Fund, a 501(c)(3) organization, provided accounting transparency to the conference.

The organizers would like to thank each and every participant in the conference, from the speakers and attendees, to the sponsors and the students and staff of Cooper Union for making the event a success.

We look forward to NYCBSDCon 2012, and hope to build on the successes of the 2010 conference.
