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 a 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 About.com, 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.
