August 6 - OpenBSD Ports, Brian Callahan
6:45, about.com (1500 Broadway, 43rd Street, 6th Floor)
Notice: RSVP to rsvp at nycbug.org and bring photo ID. RSVPs must be
received by 2 PM, day-of.


Everyone relies on packages and ports to have easily accessible
third-party software for OpenBSD. Have you ever wanted to write your own
ports? Bring your laptop and learn how ports are made! You can bring
your own software to port, or there will be a collection of software
ready to be ported.

Those interested in taking part in the hands-on workshop should email
admin AT lists.nycbug.org for setup instructions. Please also tell us if
you plan on porting software of your choosing. Please sign up for the
workshop no later than July 23.

Even if you don't want to be involved in the workshop, come and learn
all about ports!

This makes a great first foray into contributing back to OpenBSD.

Speaker Bio

Brian is a graduate student, beginning his Ph.D. work in Science and
Technology Studies at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in the Fall. He
