A few things to note.
First, NYC*BUG hosts a lot of resources for the broader *BSD community,
but we tend to not publicize it widely. A few days ago, we set up a
mailing list for a new BUG in Poland. It's the "Subcarpathian BSD Users
Group" (Podkarpacka grupa użytkowników BSD) based in southeast Poland.
We have a great list of upcoming meetings set for the next few months.
May 6 - "Bitrig" John C. Vernaleo
June 3 - "FreeBSD's NUMA" John Baldwin
->June 12-13, BSDCan, Ottawa, Canada
June 18 - "mandoc: from scratch to the standard BSD documentation
toolkit in 6 years" Ingo Schwarze
June 19 - social event with Ingo (location TBA)
July 1 - "Staying in sync with the Precision Time Protocol" Steven Kreuzer
August 5 - "What's New with OpenBSD" Brian Callahan
->October 1-2, EuroBSDCon, Stockholm, Sweden
Rumor has it, another vBSDCon is being planned for the fall in Virginia.
All the NYC*BUG meetings are at Stone Creek, except for the special June
18th meeting with Ingo Schwarze on mandoc. Let us know if you have any
good leads. A place without RSVPs and with food/drinks is ideal.
The September meeting is looking like it will feature a veteran of the
Bell Labs/Bellcore days, whose work continued into Plan 9. It's a
meeting we're extremely excited for. NYC*BUG has always emphasized the
larger Unix thread that we see the *BSDs as a fundamental part of.
