    18:00, Apple Store (SoHo)


    The NetBSD Packages Collection (pkgsrc) is a framework for building third-party software on NetBSD and other UNIX-like systems, currently containing nearly 5000 packages. It is used to enable freely available software to be configured and built easily on supported platforms.


    Speaker Bio

    Jan Schaumann works as a System Administrator in the Department of Computer Science at Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken, NJ, USA, where he manages a large, almost homogenous NetBSD environment in an academic environment; runs clustered High Performance Computing Facilities based on NetBSD; ports and maintains NetBSD pkgsrc tools and packages on non-NetBSD platforms such as IRIX and Linux; teaches classes in UNIX programming and System Administration. (Other activities he enjoys that he unfortunately does not get paid for usually involve a board often in combination with some form of H20.) Jan holds a BS and MS in Computer Science and joined the NetBSD Project as a developer in January of 2002. Within the NetBSD Project, he is a member of the Communication Executive Committee, leads the www team and -- after having ported the pkgsrc tools to IRIX -- finds himself maintaining the infrastructure for this platform as well as numerous packages.

    Trying to make him move out of NYC, where he lives together with his wife, would be a futile endeavor. Jan can be reached at jschauma -at- netmeister -dot- org.
