MeetBSD can be traced back to its humble roots as a local workshop for BSD developers and users, hosted annually in Poland since 2004. Since then, MeetBSD’s popularity has spread, and it’s now widely recognized as its own conference with participants from all over the world.
The first MeetBSD California was held at Google HQ in 2008. The 2010, 2012, 2014, and 2016 conferences were held at Hacker Dojo in Mountain View, Yahoo! HQ, Western Digital, and UC Berkeley. To this day, MeetBSD California continues to be a biennial tradition in the San Francisco Bay Area.
MeetBSD 2018 uses a mixed unConference format featuring both scheduled talks and community-driven events such as birds-of-a-feather meetings, lightning talks, and speed geeking sessions. Speakers are to be determined – stay tuned for more information!
MeetBSD will take place in the SC12 building at the Intel Santa Clara campus at 3600 Juliette Lane.
The main conference sessions will take place in the Intel auditorium. There are a variety of other rooms of different sizes on campus, allowing for unConference activities and breakout groups, as well as an extensive “hallway track”. Intel processors power countless BSD systems around the world and we can think of no better place to hold the 6th installment of MeetBSD.
We have a dedicated room block at the nearby Avatar Hotel for MeetBSD attendees.
