It was announced last month that iXsystems will be hosting the 20 year FreeBSD Anniversary Celebrations, but now we have more details.
20 years ago, Nate Williams, Rod Grimes, and Jordan Hubbard came together to turn their 386BSD patchkit into something greater. David Greenman gave their combined efforts a name.
Today, FreeBSD is the stable, powerful operating system they dreamed of and people all around the world come together to make it better every day.
In honour of its users, administrators, developers, and advocates, iXsystems invites you to FreeBSD’s 20th Anniversary Celebration being held Saturday, November 2, 2013 at the DNA Lounge in San Francisco! Festivities will begin at 6 pm, during which time we’ll have exclusive access to the upstairs area of the club. At 9 pm doors will be opened to the public, who will join us as we celebrate into the wee hours of the morning.
There will be drinks, music, and great company. Sponsors of the event include iXsystems, Netflix, Google, NetApp, and the FreeBSD Foundation. There will also be a raffle with giveaways from O’Reilly Media and No Starch Press, among others.
We hope you’ll join us for an evening of revelry and merriment on November 2nd! Please RSVP at http://www.freebsdparty.com by Friday, October 18th if you plan to attend this historic event.
When: Saturday, November 2nd, 2013, 6PM-2AM PST
