The Technical BSD Conference

Dan Langille

Dan Langille has been using FreeBSD since 1998 and almost immediately he started documenting his experiences. This online journal eventually became The FreeBSD Diary. He is very good at describing the step-by-step procedures to perform a wide variety of tasks, from changing your prompt to creating and maintaining jails.

Having studied as a software engineer, Dan has picked up sysadmin and database skills along the way. This passion has led into his current DevOps job with the Cisco Talos Security Intelligence and Research Group, where he is doing both coding and sysadmin work, and loving it.

He is the founder of BSDCan, PGCon, FreshPorts, and FreshSource. He's a keen mountain biker and seems to thrive on deadlines.
