OpenSolaris presentation in Japan

I'm back from the trip to Japan. I got to visit a number of customers and talk with them about the compilers and tools. However, the highpoint for me was the OpenSolaris event on the Friday evening. Jim Grisanzio has put up a set of photos from the event and the meal afterwards. (Yes, I was wearing a shirt and tie - the outside temperature and humidity was far to great to also wear a jacket.)

You can probably see in the pictures that the room was full - about 70 people turned up, listened, and asked some excellent questions. Keiichi Oono translated for me, and did a superb job, I think I managed to talk in short chunks, but there were a couple of occasions where I probably talked way too much. There's a couple of pictures of me using the whiteboard, and this turned out to be quite a burden to translate - I plan to do a proper write up in the next day or so.

Hisayoshi Kato did a nice talk (with live demos on a V490) of various performance tools, including some dtrace. I must admit that since Hisayoshi's talk was in Japanese I didn't actually attend all of it, and instead chatted to Jim and Takanobu Masuzuki.
