What is BSD?

BSDCan - The BSD Conference

BSDCan, a BSD conference held in Ottawa, Canada, has quickly established itself as the technical conference for people working on and with 4.4BSD based operating systems and related projects. The organizers have found a fantastic formula that appeals to a wide range of people from extreme novices to advanced developers.

BSDCan 2012 will be held on 11-12 May 2012 at University of Ottawa, and will be preceded by two days of Tutorials on 9-10 May 2012.

There will be related events (of a social nature, for the most part) on the day before and after the conference.
