 "Trying to shoehorn FreeBSD onto embedded devices - why it's not as easy
 as it could be" Adrian Chadd

 Adrian has been putting FreeBSD onto some small embedded Atheros MIPS
 devices for quite some time - with varying levels of success. In this
 talk he will cover what FreeBSD-embedded looks like today, how small can
 you get your kernel and userland, where the bloat is, and what
 challenges lie ahead.

 About the speaker:

 Adrian has been tinkering in open source since high school. He now works
 at Qualcomm Atheros on their internal driver infrastructure. In his
 spare time, Adrian is working on 802.11n support, maintains the Atheros
 wifi driver in FreeBSD as well as co-maintains the FreeBSD net80211
 stack. Adrian lives in San Jose with no wife, no children, no pets and a
 rather large collection of embedded devices (most of which run FreeBSD.)

 When: 29 September of 2012
 Where: Kyiv, Ukraine
 What: KyivBSD'12

 29 of September 2012 year, will be a good year for KyivBSD conference.
 This year, fourth conference in a row will take a place. The main goal
 of conference - make community grow faster, uptimes longer and users

 This year there will be discussion about embedding BSD systems, tutorial
 about poudriere and pkgng, insight into mpd5 and few more tech subjects.
 And of course open talks, questions and hopefully answers.

 Since this conference was very well supported by sponsors in previous
 years, we get attention and some fame (in good meaning of word). This
 year conference is free-of charge, and free-of-sponsors, but if you
 would like to, you can pay for a visit and get some goodies for a
 memory. The talks this years are in Russian, but we are open to foreign
 visitors too.
