Sun Tech Days in Tokyo

Guest Author

I haven't posted to my blog in a couple of months, so my New Year's resolution is to post more often.

Last month I took a working vacation through Japan, which started and finished in Tokyo. Here's what a working vacation looks like:


I was there to participate in the local Sun Tech Days conference.  Here are the slides for two of my presentations: New Security Features in Solaris 10 and OpenSolaris, and Let SMF Deal With That: An Introduction to SMF.  I visited some customer sites, so I got a Japanese business card for introductions (with two hands, as is the custom):

I was also interviewed for a local publication; here is partial transcript. I pasted one of these answers into Google's translation service, and got back this:

Q: How is the reputation of Solaris OS?

A: Until see the introduction of the Solaris to the high expectations
and satisfaction. However, the OS is secure because it was, all issues
to be settled is not. It is actually the most difficult, as the
organization's security policy planners think. Sun has experienced so
many engineers, we encourage you want to ask.

Which is (hopefully) not exactly what I actually said. Anyway, it was a great trip, and I'm looking forward to my next Sun Tech Days trip to St. Petersburg, Russia.
