During a talk at EuroBSDCon 2016 it was mentioned FreeBSD had no GENERIC kernel for armv6. While this was true at the time the claim was made a GENERIC kernel configuration was committed before the talk finished. This talk will provide a history of how this kernel configuration, common on other architectures, was added to armv6. FreeBSD added support for the ARMv6 and ARMv7 architectures in 2012. At this time each System on Chip required...
FreeBSD as a ServiceRodney W. Grimes
The members of the BSD Unix lineage of operating systems, notably the original U.C. Berkeley CSRG BSD, BSDi, NetBSD, FreeBSD and OpenBSD have reliably provided infrastructure for a myriad of enterprise-level tasks and services with a distinct emphasis on Internet services. As open source operating systems, the BSDs have relied heavily on frequent individual contributions and less-frequent, but potentially-larger vendor contributions such as the OpenZFS file system and bhyve hypervisor. In some cases, vendors have...
What can you accomplish with a full, remotely-accessible API for performing system administration tasks? The new SysAdm project for TrueOS and FreeBSD systems is here to help answer this question. It provides a fully-documented and simple API to transparently perform a multitude of tasks on FreeBSD systems, without the use of a separate system database. Instead, it automatically performs the same system-level changes to configuration files, services, and more. Generally, FreeBSD administrators typically conduct these...

MediaWiki's big code & usability pushBrion Vibber
I'll be going over some of the particular UI and workflow issues in editing, media uploading, and other areas that we intend to tackle, summarize some of the existing work toward those ends, and give a preview our upcoming Wikipedia Usability Initiative. MediaWiki was born in 2002, when Wikipedia's editing activity outgrew the concurrency limits of its original wiki engine. The first 6 years of this open-source wiki platform's development were largely devoted to scaling...
Introduction to GnuTLSSimon Josefsson
A Behind the Scenes Look at Large Scale Community ManagementLeslie Hawthorn
Ever wondered what it takes to make a community of more than 180 F/LOSS projects and 5,000+ geeks create great software? In this talk, Leslie Hawthorn will explore the successes and setbacks of Google Summer of Code, the first global program designed to introduce University students to Free and Open Source software development practices and methodologies. Leslie will discuss the program's inception, history, and impact, and the evolving requirements for managing a large scale global...

10 cool things about ExherboBryan Østergaard
This talk will focus on 10 important features that makes it easier for users and developers alike to work with Exherbo. While the talk will focus on the current state of Exherbo and the short-term future the ideas being presented should be equally interesting for other distribution developers and users. FOSDEM (Free and Open Source Development European Meeting) is a European event centered around Free and Open Source software development. It is aimed at developers...
Metabolic control analysis meets systems biologyAthel Cornish-Bowden & Carsten Kettner
Athel Cornish-Bowden talks about the characteristics of metabolic regulation and metabolic control, and differentiates between the two of them. He also talks about the relationship between metabolic control analysis and systems biology. Athel Cornish-Bowden is a Directeur de Recherche (Émérite) at the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS) in Marseilles, France. Although he started his career in a department of organic chemistry, virtually all of his current research is carried out in the realm...
Estudio de guacamayos como herramienta para la conservaciónDonald Brightsmith & Gabriela Vigo
Conferencia Virtual: Biodiversidad y Conservación en la Reserva Nacional Tambopata Utilizamos nuestros hallazgos de 20 años de estudio de psitacidos en la zona de Madre de Dios para implementar acciones de manejo en post de la conservación de guacamayos en la Reserva Nacional Tambopata. Encontramos que la zona alberga la mayor concentración de colpas a nivel mundial. La distribución de las colpas varia en el paisaje, siendo menos abundantes en la zona oeste (ríos Amigos:...
Corrosion Experiments in GelOliver Weichold
In this video, the corrosion process of iron is shown. Phenolphthalein indicator turns violet and shows the presence of hydroxide ions, while Prussian blue indicator turns blue and shows the presence of iron ions." This is part of the Open Educational Resources Initiative by the Faculty of Civil Engineering of the RWTH Aachen University.
The Rest of ReSTDylan Beattie
So you've built a ReSTful API. You've had lengthy debates with your team about exactly what HTTP POST means, you know your GET from your PUT and you understand why HTTP methods aren't really the same as CRUD operations. So far, so good. But now you're dealing with a whole new set of problems. Do you really need to PUT the entire Customer just to change someone's email address? Why does it take you 25...
