KnoxBUG kicked things off in 2018 with our “Happy True Year” TrueOS install fest event. It was a nice informal gathering with drinks,pizza and a great turnout. There was much tinkering and laughing. As most of us do at the beginning of a new year, we also took time to reflect on the past year and make plans for how to make this new year even better.
One of the things we discussed was a change in format. While most of our attendees have been people with a lot of BSD / Unix / FOSS experience, we’ve also had a few people that are completely new to the open source world. Our talks have all been great but have mainly catered towards expert FOSS users. We want to change that approach.
