There is no specific time for each talk. Talks will start on Saturday at 12pm, and will be held in the order as listed here. There will be a pause between 14:00pm and 15:00pm, but apart from that, they will be held one after the other.
As there is no tight schedule, you can still submit talk proposals! You could even have spontaneous talks on the conference itself, provided you find an audience. Please send an e-mail to pkgsrccon-2013@pkgsrcCon.pkgsrc.org
Presenting the conference and the conference site, introducing the schedule: Which talks are there, where can you get drinks, where will be dinner?
Thomas Klausner will give a short overview of the work of pkgsrc release engineering. What must be done for a branch, what is the procedure of branching, packaging, distributing and maintaining a pkgsrc release?
Thomas Klausner, The NetBSD Foundation
Joyent operate a large, high-performance public cloud running on SmartOS, their open source fork of illumos/OpenSolaris, with third-party software provided by perhaps the largest pkgsrc installation in the world. In this talk Jonathan will provide some background to SmartOS and insight into pkgsrc development at Joyent.
Jonathan Perkin, Software Engineer, Joyent
DeforaOS is an Open Source project, aiming at improving the overall user experience and possibilities offered by modern Operating Systems. The main goal is to allow remote and secure access to one's own resources, also when they are found on a private desktop system at home and accessed from a mobile phone over an untrusted network.
It notably proposes a desktop user environment, eventually able to expose these features to the end user. Meanwhile, it aims at being a lightweight, coherent, usable and portable environment suitable for the platforms typically targeted by the pkgsrc project.
Pierre Pronchery, The NetBSD Foundation
We will present a set of tools for the analysis and quality assurance of FOSS distributions. These tools analyse meta-data of packages (like dependencies, build-dependencies, conflicts, etc), and answer questions like:

Go is a new systems programming language with a focus on concurrency and expressiveness. The Go programming language recently gained support for running on NetBSD on the i386 (386) and x86_64 (amd64) architectures. This support will be part of the upcoming Go 1.1 release. (FreeBSD had already been supported in the Go 1 release).
This talk gives an introduction to Go and presents some of its benefits for systems and network server programming. It will then go further into detail regarding its implementation on NetBSD from the programmer's and from the admin's point of view.
Benny Siegert, The NetBSD Foundation, Google
pkglint (pkgtools/pkglint) is a tool to check for certain validity and norming criteria of packages. Amitai Schlair will talk about his recent work and plans for pkglint.
Amitai Schlair, The NetBSD Foundation
Introduce Ansible as system orchestration tool that supports the Amazon EC2 cloud and NetBSD. Show how to get a basic NetBSD system setup, an example database server, web application server and example web application deployed with Ansible. Introduce tools to use Amazon's Xen-based EC2 cloud from NetBSD and with Ansible. Show the roadmap to combine all those tools and deploy NetBSD-based database- and webservers with the example application.
Hubert Feyrer, The NetBSD Foundation
