OpenSolaris at Tech Days Beijing: 150 Photos

I spent a few days in China with the OpenSolaris community at Sun's Tech Days Beijing Conference. This conference tour is really growing in diversity these days. NetBeans participation is huge, and OpenSolaris is all over the place as well. I think we are all helping to build on an already successful conference series with the inclusion of these open source projects. NetBeans got involved in last year's tour, and OpenSolaris is getting involved this year.

OpenSolaris at Tech Days Beijing In Beijing this week, about a dozen Solaris executives, engineers, and managers from the U.S. and China participated in multiple events at the conference -- the Solaris track on day two, the OpenSolaris Day on day three, the Beijing OpenSolaris User Group meeting at Tsinghua University, the new Beijing Solaris Product User Group, and the University World Tour at the China Academy of Science (CAS) Graduate School of Engineering. That's a lot. But the demand is clearly there. Very impressive.

Interest in Solaris and OpenSolaris is running very high in China. The sessions were well attended, and they all offered solid technical content. Even I participated, though I don't talk about technology. I presented my OpenSolaris community story twice -- once to the students at CAS and once at the OpenSolaris Day at Tech Days. The CAS event went on for hours and hours on Thursday. It was a very hot day, and the room had no air conditioning. Yet a total of 650 students attended, and many were standing and sitting on the floor all over the place. Amazing. The OpenSolaris Day ran all of Friday, and there were about 165 developers or so. At the conference generally, well over a thousand people were exposed to various Solaris and OpenSolaris conversations during three days of events.

I took some shots from as many sessions as I could, but I clearly missed a lot of stuff. There was a professional photographer floating around with a real cannon for a camera, so I hope the Tech Days team posts his pictures someplace. He was shooting some nice stuff. I see Joey has some images, and so does John. There will probably be more in the coming weeks.

Thanks to the Tech Days team for having me around. And thanks to the Sun China guys for taking care of me, so I didn't get cluelessly lost all week with everything going on. It's so impressive the scale that these guys are dealing with. I'm looking forward to investing a great deal of time in China with you guys. :)

A call for open community participation. If you are doing interesting things with OpenSolaris and want to get involved with the Tech Days conference tour, let us know. Let me a comment or email me (jim dot grisanzio at sun dot com). We are looking for non-Sun speakers. Check the schedule for a venue near you. OpenSolaris Day is free, so please feel free to stop by.

Nice photos of conference. You have many long shots. Think about coming in closer, say, when the students are in front of open books on a table, shoot a photograph of what's in the book. Close-ups of faces, too, can be very revealing.

hey, Matthew. Thanks. I shot these with an old G2 and I'm a bit shy about getting up close to people and flashing them. But I have a D30 (still old, but more powerful than the G2) that I can get up closer to people. I'm going to bring the D30 to the next conf in November in Korea.
