### `Oct 2012` - EuroBSDCon 2012, Warsaw, Poland

*Oct. 18-21, 2012, Warsaw, Poland*

[EuroBSDcon](http://2012.EuroBSDCon.org) is the European annual
technical conference gathering users and developers working on and with
4.4BSD based operating systems family and related projects.

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
