Registration now open for BSDCan and pfSense Tutorial!

March 23rd, 2008 by Chris Buechler

BSDCan 2008 registration is now open, including registration for the pfSense Tutorial on May 14, 2008 at 9:30 AM local time in Ottawa (same as Eastern US).

In addition to our 4 hour pfSense training session, there are many more compelling tutorials and sessions.

This looks to be another great year for BSDCan, make your plans now!  Travel information can be found on the BSDCan site.

Those of you who register for the pfSense tutorial, please email us to let us know you have registered. We’d like to know those who will be attending ahead of time, and we won’t find out until that day otherwise. Also include anything specific that is a priority for you to get out of the session. We will try to accommodate any specific requests from attendees.

The night after the tutorial we’ll be at one of the local bars within walking distance from the residence where we’ll be staying, and we invite everyone to join us. We’ve had some great discussions with pfSense users in past years that has helped shape the project.

A note for US citizens looking to attend
You will need a Passport to make the trip, however don’t let that hold you back. It’s a painless process. You can get the picture taken at Walmart for like $8, and find the rest of the information you need on the US State Department Passport site. Customs has never been a problem.

For those of you not in the US, unfortunately I’m not familiar with your requirements for travel. The travel page on the BSDCan site has information that may be helpful.

We look forward to seeing you at BSDCan!

    Land Travel Between The United States and Canada Does Not Require a passport (all air travel does) if your driving there you need proof of citizenship (birthcertificate / naturalization / roba) and valid currently issued government id (your Drivers license)

  2. Chris Buechler Says:

    That’s correct, if you travel via land a passport is not required. I assumed most if not all people would travel via air, and didn’t check the requirements for land travel. Thanks for clarifying that.

    [...] BSDTalk has an interview with Dan Langille about his new job with Afilias  and BSDCan 2008 (BSDCan 2008 link for pfSense users) [...]

    If you were born outside the US, you will need a passport whether you cross the border by land, water, or air. This requirement does not change even if you become a US citizen.

    I don’t think I’ll be able to make it this year which is both sad and unfortunate. I was really hoping to go and now I’m hoping there is some kind of video of the discussion/training session. I’m definitely going to plan for this next year or at least plan to find a Conference where pfSense is at next year.

  6. David Says:

    Is it possible to only attend the tutorial without registering for the conference?
    I am in Montreal and I’d love to attend the tutorial but I cannot take any other time off that week — does anyone know if it’s possible and how? thanks

  7. Chris Buechler Says:

    It is possible to register only for the tutorial, though we encourage everyone to attend the conference as well. Email me (cbuechler@gmail.com) for info on registering only for the tutorial if you can’t also make the conference.

Please don’t post technical questions or off-topic comments. It is far more likely that your questions and concerns will be addressed effectively through one of our support channels.
