What is this all about?

Welcome to this years OpenBSD conference and fundraiser. As usual, there is no entrance fee. Everyone interrested in BSD, OpenSSH, unix development stuff is welcome to come by.
If you happen to want to see more OpenBSD development made, you can take this opportunity to donate directly to the project. If you want to buy a few blowfish t-shirts, OpenBSDEurope will have some of their merchandise with them.

Even if OpenBSD is given away for free, it doesn't mean it can be produced for free. Fantastic stuff happens on hackathons and your donations help make them happen.

Still, its also nice to have a common place to meet other OpenBSD users, supporters and developers. Listen to where your favourite OS is heading, whats about to appear in the next release, and what topics occupies other OpenBSD users minds.

For some reason, I get a lot of "Can I come? I'm not a software developer..", or "I am not contributing". Yes! You should come. Even if you only want to drop a few bucks in the donation box (for eternal fame or glory) and just want to hear where OpenBSD is heading, how free software works and gets developed.
