FreeBSD vendor summit - November 2011; Sunnyvale, California

Since this doesn't seem to have gotten much notice - there's a FreeBSD vendor summit being held in Sunnyvale, California on the 3rd and 4th of November 2011. This is an opportunity for developers and vendors to share project direction and goals, collaborate on various projects, and likely hit each other with a big "why can't you do X" stick :-)

NetApp is sponsoring the event.

I'll be there with someone from Qualcomm Atheros, who will be presenting on Qualcomm/Atheros' open source direction and strategy. There'll likely be some (informal) discussion about how developers and vendors can sign up to their open source developer programme and obtain documentation/reference code for the Atheros wireless and embedded chipsets.

(This is what I've signed up to and it's been a huge help in getting Atheros 802.11n support up and going in FreeBSD.)

More details can be found here:

If you're a vendor using FreeBSD, or you're a vendor thinking about using FreeBSD in a project (wireless or otherwise) this mini-conference is just for you. Personally I'm interested in talking with the nvidia representative about trying to get some CUDA stuff going on FreeBSD.
