Workshop: Getting Started with FreeBSD


FreeBSD is a free Unix-like operating system descended from Research Unix via the Berkeley Software Distribution (BSD), also known as “Berkeley Unix.” It’s known for its reliability, stability, and advanced networking and performance.
Join us for a full day workshop that will teach you how to install FreeBSD and configure the packages necessary to get you up and running.
After you've learned the basics, you’ll dive into setting up FreeBSD with a desktop environment and learn how to get a web browser installed. We'll walk you through building custom packages so you can configure your system specifically to your liking. We'll explore the FreeBSD Jail system for managing separate FreeBSD environments within your existing FreeBSD install that allow you to isolate programs from one another. Then we'll teach you how to run Ansible Playbooks on FreeBSD to be able to control remote FreeBSD machines and automate the process of configuring FreeBSD.
You’ll leave the workshop with the knowledge to install and administer a FreeBSD Operating System and know where to go to learn even more about using FreeBSD.
