An Introduction to Verifiedexec in NetBSD

in BSDCan, BSDCan 2012, Programming, Sysadmin, NetBSD, BSD
NetBSD

The verifiedexec feature has been part of NetBSD for some years now. It seems that a lot of people are unaware of the feature or do not know the full capabilities of verifiedexec.

Building NetBSD

in Build, Community, SC2011, NetBSD
Speaker:

Event: 
SC2011
Abstract: 

People who are interested in learning about operating systems have a lot of topics to absorb, but the very first barrier that gets in people's way is that you need to be able to build the software. If you can't build it, you can't make changes. If building it is painful, you'll find other things to do with your time.

The NetBSD Project has a build system that goes far beyond what many other projects implement. Come to this talk about learn about
build.sh and the features available that make multi-architecture and embedded development environments a breeze with NetBSD.

The NetBSD Way

Speaker: 
David Maxwell
Event: 
Summercamp2010
Abstract: 

The origins of BSD and Open Source predate the modern Linux renaissance by a decade and a half, and BSD derived codebases are still going strong. What makes a BSD community different from a Linux community? What technological decisions are given more priority in the BSD world? Why should you care, and why should you use BSD? Come and hear a new perspective. The first BSD Unix-derivative operating system was developed in 1977. Shared as Open Source from the beginning, it provided many people's first exposure to the Open Source concept - especially through its use as the basis for the original SunOS, or the reuse of its TCP/IP stack on widely varied systems (including MS Wi ndows). More recently, whole generations of Open Source developers have grown familiar with Linux as an operating system and community structure, and they've had limited, or no, exposure to BSD. The two cultures have similarities, but also many differences in their approach to community building, code maintenance, design and development, and project man agement. Many OSCON conference attendees may only have exposure to The Linux Way. Come and hear about The BSD Way, and you'll find out why BSD is still going strong, the benefits it can offer you as a user or as a developer, and why us BSD folks don't just drop it all and contribute to Linux instead.
