Goodbye Bullseye — report from the Montreal 2023 BSP

2023-03-04 - Louis-Philippe Véronneau

Hello World! I haven't really had time to blog here since the start of the semester, as I've been pretty busy at work1.

All this to say, this report for the Bug Squashing Party we held in Montreal last weekend is a little late, sorry :)

First of all, I'm pleased to announce our local community seems to be doing great and has recovered from the pandemic-induced lull. May COVID stay away from our bodies forever.

This time around, a total of 9 people made it to what has become somewhat of a biennial tradition2. We worked on a grand total of 14 bugs and even managed to close some!

It looks like I was too concentrated on bugs to take a picture of the event... To redeem myself, I hereby offer you a picture of a cute-but-hairless cat I met on Sunday morning:

You should try to join an upcoming BSP or to organise one if you can. It's loads of fun and you'll be helping the project make the next release happen sooner!

As always, thanks to Debian for granting us a budget for the food and to rent the venue.

Goodbye Bullseye!

  1. Which I guess is a good thing, since it means I actually have work this semester :O
