The event is sponsored by Verisign but isn't Verisign focused at all — just a good opportunity for the community to get together for a few days of great discussion. The food from 2013 was great, fully expect it be at least as good this year.

This looks as though it will be a really informative weekend for folks interested in the *BSD flavored operating systems.
