Introduction to FreeNAS development

FreeNAS development

FreeNAS has been around for several years now, however, development on it has been by very few people. Even with corporate sponsorship and a team of full time developers, outside interest has been minimal.

Not a week goes by when a bug report or feature request is not filed. Documentation on how to develop on FreeNAS simply does not exist. Currently, the only way to come up to speed on FreeNAS development is to obtain the source code, read through it, modify it and verify it works. The goal of this talk is to create a simple FreeNAS application to demonstrate some of the common methods used when dealing with FreeNAS development, as well as showcase some of the API.
