    This is a little OT, but does anyone here know of BSD cons in the New England / Atlantic Canada area? I'm about to become a OpenBSD user and would really love the chance to hobnob with some gurus.
  • I'm in germany and I don't know if it would be a good idea to attend because I don't know what langage they speak. The website is in German, but if all the speakers speak German, I'm screwed...
    • I suppose as the titles of the tutorials are in English, the tutorials will be, too.
      As Jordan Hubbard spoke some years ago on EuroBSD, I expect that at least some speakers will speak english - at least Jordans German is still far from perfect...
    • Heh.. out of personal interest, how do you get around there without speakign the language?
      My girlfriend lives in Berlin, and since I speak some German, I can get around... I was initially just amazed at how few peopel would understand and speak English there (being Dutch myself, and beign used to most people speakign at least some English here)
      • There's a vast difference between knowing enough German to order a loaf of bread at the local bakery in German and knowing enough German to follow a tutorial on the technological intricacies of FreeBSD in German.
      • Like another reply, there is a difference. I can speak VERY basic German for right now (been in country for, um...3 months now. I spoke it fluently as a kid, but its gone now. I actually speak more Dutch than I do German due to being stationed there for 2 years. I can understand German if I think about it, but usually the blank look while I think about what they're saying just frustrates the Germans.

          Heh.. I do speak some German as well, enough for things like shopping etc.. but it seems not enough for
    • I'm quite certain that the overwhelming majority, if not all, of the talks and tutorials will be in English.

      On another note, it might be worth pointing out that there are a lot of developers attending/speaking, so if you want to meet some of the people behind your favorite OS, this looks like a good opportunity.

      Wake up. It's 21st century. No one speaks German any more.

        Also die rund 100 Millionen Menschen in D/CH/A sehen das etwas anders...
