Some airport 30 minutes before landing in Ottawa
Hot chocolate and Timbits for breakfast to start my own personal tourist day on Tuesday morning.
Meet the locals...
digging into some flower pot
Sorry for disturbing you, little furry fellow.
We quickly parted ways (though he was quicker than I was).
The Rideau canal
Lion statues guarding the post office.
Another lion with a shield.
The windows of the war museum form the following sentence in morse code: Lest we forget.
Star Wars exhibition at the aviation and space museum
Developers meeting at the Royal Oak pub on Tuesday evening. Two of my ex-mentees looking very happy.
The first day of the devsummit prior to the official opening.
There are still some name tags left on the table.
John Baldwin giving an outline for the security incident review presentation.
Lunch break in the SITE building hallway.
The vendor summit session is about to begin.
The Desktop working group on the next day of the devsummit. Kris Moore "preaching"... ;-)
Mentor and mentee talking during the break of the desktop working group.
Still in the break, but Kris had already put up my discussion items for everyone to see.
Break discussions continuing...
Lunch is about to begin in the Ottawa Residence ground floor room. This is also where the hacker lounge in the evenings was located.
DevSummit t-shirt grabbing commencing. Although jhb announced that there were not enough t-shirts for everyone, there were still some left on that table afterwards.
Ah, the scarf that they bought for Henning Brauer. ;-)
The doc working group convenes (session leaders view). Dru Lavigne giving an outline of the current status of work in the handbook print edition effort. All of my mentees (past and present) were in that room, but only 4 fitted in the picture.
Ah, the missing mentee. ;-) I was very happy that all of them were there and that we had some new folks there as well.
Pizza for dinner on the last day of the devsummit.
Will you be there? :-)
Henning showing Bob Beck that he just registered libc.so as a domain name. Hilarious!
Setting up the FreeBSD Foundation table on the morning of the first conference day. Bag with a lot of swag in it is in front.
The welcoming is about to begin...
Kirk giving his presentation about security features in FreeBSD.
Michael Lucas presenting a copy of his latest book "Absolute OpenBSD 2nd edition" to Henning Brauer (who did a lot of technical review).
Peter N. M. Hansteen also got a copy.
Will Backman is also happy he got a copy.
Pointy hat to...
FreeBSD Foundation status update during the devsummit track of the conference. Very nicely done. I especially liked the "tip of the iceberg" part, showing that the technology is not all and everything about FreeBSD (but important, of course).
No description necessary. <;-)
An xkcd.com comic illustrating an important point in the Foundation's presentation given by Justin Gibbs.
Lunch box contents.
Matthew Ahrens (one of the ZFS inventors/developers) preparing the ZFS @ BSDCan session.
A great session with a lot of important filesystem (users, developers) folks in there.
I had the feeling that bridges between the different projects working on OpenZFS were built in that session.
Let's hope that many new and great things in and around ZFS will be the result of this session (and the ZFS BOF later that day) which will benefit everyone.
The MCLinker session.
pjd giving a presentation introducing capabilities.
Some laughter came from audience comments to that graph like why arrows were not bidirectional and something about a love triangle. ;-)
The ZFS BOF session. I wanted one of those t-shirts, but I could not compete against the high stats like number of snapshots, biggest pool, etc. of some of the developers. So I guess they deserved these t-shirts more than I do.
The hacker lounge on the evening of the first day of the conference.
One of the presentations on the morning of the second conference day.
Lunch box contents (tuna version) on the second day.
You'll probably find pictures of me taken from the other side. ;-)
Henning noticed that I was taking a photo of him.
Warner Losh had some nice pictures in his presentation about NEWBUS.
People gather for the closing session of the conference.
Malta, the destination of EuroBSDcon this year. Be there!
The big goodbye after the auction was over.
The doc lounge on the last day, which brought in some people from the conference interested in helping out in the documentation effort. Doc developers were there to show them how we work.
The last evening together.
Touring the city of Ottawa with a couple people on Sunday.
Scale model of the city.
