BSDCan wrap up

May 19th, 2008 by Chris Buechler

We made it back safely from BSDCan yesterday. It was a great time, as always, with some great presentations. The slides from our tutorial will be available sometime this week after I catch up on some other things and have a chance to upload them. Thanks to those of you who attended, it was great to meet many pfSense users.

The pfSense developer summit went well also, many thanks to those who made contributions! We resolved a number of open tickets and made progress on several others. Still some more work to do before 1.2.1 is ready, but we got about half of it knocked out this week. More here on that later.

I would also like to thank several FreeBSD developers we had discussions with during the week. Historically we have only gotten attention from a very few FreeBSD developers (though their involvement is very much appreciated), and the tough problems we run into commonly do not get responses from developers with the ability to resolve those issues. Every year we get more attention from FreeBSD developers, and more are interested in ways we can work together more. We hope to be able to work together better in the future, to improve both pfSense and FreeBSD.

    That damned addictive shawarma…. In all seriousness, great conference, it was good to put faces to names. I hope to attend again.

    Nick: I figured you would be griping that we kept you up til 4 AM several nights drinking beer. :)

    for those who don’t know: Nick is one of our mirror hosts and has been involved in the project for years.
