Tokyo Linux User Group 031409
By Jimgris-Oracle on Mar 15, 2009
I spent the day yesterday with the Tokyo Linux User Group at the March technical meeting and nomikai. Great turn out of about 45 guys. I was too tired to go out for the nijikai afterwards because of all the other events this week, but I had a great time while I was there. There were two full length (and excellent) talks -- Stephen J. Turnbull on version control systems and Akira Kurogane on natural language processing -- plus the regular auction to raise money for the group and then drinks later on.
TLUG is 15 years old this year. That`s quite a history for a user group. I`m a new guy around here (about a year or so), but TLUG is a genuine community and I feel most welcome at all these events. It`s great to see OpenSolaris guys in Tokyo participating as well. Hopefully, we`ll get together for the 15th year anniversary in June. Anyway, here are some images from yesterday.
