Already registered attendees include dozens of developers, systems administrators and end-users of the BSD operating systems. Besides the well-known speakers at the event, NYCBSDCon 2005 will also be an excellent opporunity for networking with others in the BSD community.

NYCBSDCon registration is open online until September 10th at

Registration by September 10th is only $20, payable during the morning of the conference. Onsite registration is $40. As the conference fee is quite low, only cash will be accepted.

After the conference concludes at around 5:30 pm, attendees will meet at the West End bar, in a back room reserved for the conference, just across Broadway from Columbia University. The after-party is sponsored by OrgCom, the entity that held last year's New York Technical Community Holiday Party.

Sponsors, besides the hosting technical user group NYC*BUG, include USENIX and New York Internet.
