EuroBSDCon 2018


I visited EuroBSDcon this year agaian which was held between 20 - 23 September 2018 in Bucharest, Rumania. This was the fifth time that I've visited a EuroBSDcon after 2011, 2012, 2016 and 2017. I don't have any experience in visisting other BSD conferences. Hopefully that will happen one day! So find below a summary of my EuroBSDcon 2018.


Last year I was not able to attend the BGP tutorial by Peter Hessler. But this year it did fit my agenda. I was very happy that this was on again this year. The tutorial was well presented and Peter is very knowledgable on both the general BGP subject as well as on OpenBGPD. A good amount of people (approx. 20) visited the tutorial. It teached me the basics of BGP in general and the OpenBGPD implementation of it. And as I did not know anything really substantial about BGP and OpenBGPD this was a very well spent day!
