BSD (Berkeley Software Distribution) derived systems are notable software achievement from the 20th century, and continue to play an important role in the 21st century. Products derived from BSD are everywhere, from cellphones to core network routers, from game consoles to the busiest websites, from small embedded to critical storage systems. Everyone benefits from BSD derived systems in their everyday life.

In 2004, the first AsiaBSDCon was held in Taiwan, with subsequent AsiaBSD conferences being held in Japan. For 2017, we decided to have a BSD conference, from Saturday 11 November to Sunday 12 November in Taipei, Taiwan.

BSDTW 2017 is planned as a single track, 2 day conference with 10 presentations of 50 minutes each covering the latest BSD technology. The conference will attract over 100 highly skilled engineering professionals, software developers, computer science professors, users and students from all over Asia as well as other parts of the world. The goal of BSDTW is to exchange knowledge about the BSD operating systems, facilitate coordination and cooperation among users and developers and to promote business friendly BSD licensed open source software.

Taiwan has a long history with BSD systems, many of the top websites in Taiwan are using FreeBSD as their main server OS, also, OpenBSD and NetBSD are used in many products from local companies. In education networks, FreeBSD is usually the first choice for the server OS because of its stability and performance. There are more than a dozen FreeBSD developers and many BSD users in Taiwan, but they tend to be silent in the past few years, because of there is no event and they are busy at their positions. We believe BSDTW will draw in both old friends who are now serving important roles in companies or academia. By participating in BSDTW you can promote your company to decision makers, attract mind share, scout for highly skilled future employees or simply return something to the ecosystem if you are already using a BSD operating systems in your business or products.
