NYC*BUG Tomorrow!

Fifteen Years and Fifteen Minutes: Applying Occam's Razor to FreeBSD 
with OccamBSD, Michael Dexter
2021-02-03 @ 18:45 - Zoom

occambsd.sh (https://github.com/michaeldexter/occambsd) is a script that 
builds a minimum FreeBSD u serland and kernel using build options, for 
use with bhyve(8) and jail(8). The result takes minutes t o build and 
seconds to boot, but achieving this simple objective required fifteen+ 
years of experimen tation, error reporting, and gentle persuasion. This 
talk will touch on the milestones leading to occ ambsd.sh, the role of 
build options as part of the fundamental FreeBSD value proposition, the 
mysteri ous build_option_survey, occambsd.sh in action, and your 
insightful questions.

For Zoom meeting details, email to rsvp AT lists.nycbug.org, and details 
will be sent on the day of the meeting.
