 EuroBSDcon gives the exceptional opportunity to learn about latest news  
 from the BSD world, witness contemporary deployment case studies, and  
 meet personally other users and companies using BSD oriented  
 technologies. EuroBSDcon is also a boiler plate for ideas, discussions  
 and information exchange, which often turn into programming projects.  
   
 The conference has always attracted active programmers, administrators  
 and aspiring students, as well as IT companies at large, which found the  
 conference a convenient and quality training option for its staff. We  
 firmly believe that high profile education is vital to the future of  
 technology, and hence greatly welcome students and young people to this  
 regular meeting.

 ### `Nov 2011` - bsd\_day(2011)  
   
 *Nov. 5, 2011, Slovak University of Technology, Bratislava, Slovakia*  
   
 The purpose of this one-day event is to gather Central European  
 developers of today's open-source BSD systems, popularize their work,  
 and provide an interface for real-life communication. There are no  
 formalities, no papers, and no registration or participation fee,  
 however the invited developers are encouraged to give a talk on their  
 favorite BSD-related topic, then have a beer with the other folks around  
 :-) The language of this event is English, and the goal is to motivate  
 potential future developers and users, especially undergraduate  
 university students to work with BSD systems.  
   
 There is an additional schedule for participants and their guests on the  
 day prior to (November 4th) and after (November 6th) the main event.
