Our next meeting is the InstallFest on August 3rd. The FreeBSD
Foundation table at HOPE (.net) was a great way to interact with a new
audience. Lots of discussions were had and fliers for the InstallFest
were distributed.

For the event, everyone is invited to do a short presentation on their
hardware. Nothing high-pressure, and using the opportunity to ask
questions is encouraged.  Various *BSD install media will be there.  Use
the talk@ list if you have any questions beforehand.


August 3 - BSD Installfest
18:45, Stone Creek Bar & Lounge: 140 E 27th St


NYC*BUG InstallFests are mixed-up, sloppy opportunities to get hands-on
and dirty with an array of hardware.

>From Raspberry Pis and BeagleBones to common 64-bit laptops, lots of
hardware and a rat's nest of cables will saturate the room, along with
install media for FreeBSD, NetBSD, OpenBSD and beyond.

This is a great chance to test out the BSD of your choice for the first
or 54th time, in collaboration with other BSD users and developers.

Bring in that laptop, maybe with a second hard disk, or one of the newer
supported ARM embedded boards.

As in the past, we'll utilize the digital projector to those doing short
presentations or for those who want to display their progress. Feel free
to have a short overview of your install to present if you're interested.

No need to RSVP, but email talk@ if you have any preliminary questions
about hardware support, specific hardware needs, etc.


And in September:
