DTrace Day Tokyo: Photos

Here are 13 images from DTrace Day in Tokyo earlier today. This was an event organized by the Japanese OpenSolaris community, which gets together monthly (sometimes multiple times a month). There were 51 guys who came by for the six sessions that ran all afternoon. I think they all went out for a nomikai afterwards, but I couldn’t make it. Had to go swimming instead. Anyway, it was great to see so many new people come out on a beautiful Saturday afternoon. About half the people were first-timers to the OpenSolaris community.

OpenSolaris Community Growth in Japan

The Japanese OpenSolaris community continues to grow. It's now the 3rd largest community in the OpenSolaris world following the Spanish and Indian communities, it's the 3rd most active, and Tokyo is the #1 city outside the United States for sending traffic to opensolaris.org. The community in Japan also continues to diversify as well with general users mixing with kernel developers and globalization engineers. In fact, this diversity is driving the need to run concurrent sessions for beginners and advanced developers and users at community events.

There are multiple parts to the community in Japan:

There is a lot going on. I try to track what I can at this tag.

4 OpenSolaris Sessions at Tokyo OSC

The OpenSolaris community plans four sessions at the Tokyo Open Source Conference on Friday and Saturday. See announcements from Shoji and Masafumi and Reiko Saito, who also posted her slides. These sessions will involve not only dives into the technology, such as ZFS and new features in the OpenSolaris distribution, but also how to contribute localizations and get involved in the community generally. There will be a booth, so stop by and get some CDs and shirts and other stuff. If you miss the conference, you can catch up with things in March when we'll have more community events at the Sun Yoga office. A Linux technical meeting is planned for the 13th, and then there will be 3 sessions of OpenSolaris later in the month on the 27th.

Tokyo2Point0 020810

I went to the Tokyo2Point0 event last night. There were 250 people there with another 150 online, so it was a packed time for sure. Really nice to catch up with a bunch of people. I haven’t been to one of these events in many months. Just been too busy. It was also to good to see Michael Sullivan do a short talk on OpenSolaris as well.

Building International Communities in Tokyo

Here are two really nice articles in the Japan Times talking about the international tech community in Tokyo:
The articles describe the meta community here, and that's where we OpenSolaris guys hang out. By contributing to the larger community, we've found that the OpenSolaris community here is growing and earning its way right along side everyone else. There are language and culture barriers to overcome, but we all are making a great deal of progress. It's quite common now to find OpenSolaris developers, administrators, and users participating in multiple international communities, which, of course, helps us to learn in return. And the Web 2.0 community is growing in size and diversity as well. Also, since the tech community locally is well connected globally, we can extend our reach around the world by just interacting right here at home. Here's my photo archive as well (mostly Linux & OpenSolaris).

OpenSolaris Night Seminar, January 22, Tokyo

Shoji Haraguchi just announced the next OpenSolaris Night Seminar in Tokyo. It will be on January 22nd in Jingumae. On tap will be Crossbow and Solaris Containers. Register early. These seminars generally fill up pretty quickly, and there's only room for about 100 people in the room. You know, we really could use some bigger conference rooms to hold these events. Lots of people are interested in OpenSolaris in Tokyo. See you there.

OpenSolaris at Tokyo Charity Event

The OpenSolaris community in Japan participated at a charity event last night -- Tokyo's Biggest Tech Party Ever. I don't know if it was the biggest ever, but there were 400 people there throughout the evening from over a dozen tech communities in the city. Michael Sullivan, who leads the Tokyo OSUG and who got us involved in the event, auctioned off a bag stuffed full of OpenSolaris and Glassfish items (shirts, CDs, books, mice, pens, pads, hats, and whatever else we could find). Good time. Some images.

Members of the OpenSolaris Community in Japan will be participating in three community events this week Tokyo's Biggest Tech Party Ever (A Charity Event), OpenSolaris Hot Topics Seminar, and the Tokyo Linux User Group's Technical Meeting & Bonenkai. Should be a pretty busy week to end the year around here. I'll take some images. If you are in the area, stop by. After that I am taking a couple of weeks off -- no email, no cell phone, no Internet, no nothing. Just fresh air.

Tokyo OpenSolaris Study Group 121209

I stopped by the Tokyo OpenSolaris Study Group meeting in Yoga today. The guys were running two consecutive sessions on ZFS, Solaris Internals, and Driver Development. Good turn out for a Saturday afternoon, too. About 35 people came to the sessions with another 30 or so contributing on IRC at #opensolaris-jp on Freenode. Here are some images:

Tokyo OpenSolaris User Group: Resources

I am building out a page of resources contributed to the community from the Tokyo OpenSolaris User Group. If you have something to contribute that you want posted, ping ug-tsug at opensolaris dot org (subscribe here). Also, I am looking for people who are interested in editing the TSUG website when we move to XWiki on hub.opensolaris.org in two weeks. Here is the current list of leaders. We need editors, translators, coders, writers, photographers, videographers, designers, organizers, students, professors, business guys etc. Everything. And, of course, if you are interested in presenting something on OpenSolaris or Open Source or community development we'd be happy to have you talk as well.

Planning a Wet and Windy Nomi

A few guys from the Tokyo OpenSolaris User Group will be getting together tomorrow night for a beer (nomikai). Martin Schmidt from the Osnabrück OSUG in Germany will here, so it will be great to meet him and talk all things East and West. But there is also a big hairy typhoon spinning its way to Tokyo. So, we may get wet.

Tokyo Hackerspace Open House

I stopped by the Tokyo Hackerspace Open House today in Shirokanedai. Really nice day to welcome a new community of hackers, builders, and artists into existence. This space, which is a two story house in Tokyo with a backyard, is a welcome distinction to a virtual world filled with distributed digital networks. Tokyo Hackerspace is local and quite physical, and it grew out the community activities at Tokyo BarCamp in May. It`s very cool. Go to the site. Join the mailing list. Stop by the house. Get involved -- physically.

OpenSolaris Boot Camp: Shizuoka, Japan

The OpenSolaris community in Japan is getting together for a "boot camp" meeting in Shizuoka. That's a couple hours outside Tokyo, and a nice place down by the ocean. I can't make this trip this weekend. I have worked far too many weekends and holidays lately. But the list of activities and technical talks on OpenSolaris looks excellent. Event details are in English (here) and Japanese (here and here).

I went over to the OpenSolaris Night Seminar in Jingumae earlier this evening. Really nice turn out. About 90 people came out on a Friday night. And it was great to see Nagahara Niroharu and Hisayoshi Kato, two of the four engineers who wrote the new book on ZFS here in Japan.

Upcoming Events: Linux, OpenSolaris, Web 2.0

I hope to check out three community events in Tokyo in the next week or so:

- 7/10: OpenSolaris User Group: ZFS and OpenSolaris Security
- 7/11: Tokyo Linux User Group: Network Security and ZFS
- 7/13: Tokyo2Point0: Cloud Computing and Lightning Talks

The timing is good, too. Canon called. They fixed my lens.

Japan OpenSolaris Community Meeting 062709

The Japan OpenSolaris Community together on Saturday. Nice day (and night). About 60 people came by for the three sessions, two of which were in Japanese and the third in English. Then all three groups came together for a nomikai. I think the model works well to start integrating the Japanese and international OpenSolaris communities.

I used a new lens for this event. My f/1.4 lens is getting fixed, so I borrowed Jon`s 50mm f/1.2, which is one scary smart lens. It`s a tad expensive, too, so I was more than a little nervous shooting with it. Anyway, at f/1.2 the focus is just razor thin. Focus on someone`s glasses and their entire face is out. I messed up a few images that way, but by the end of the night I was getting used to it. Amazing piece of glass. By the way, you can see Jon`s stuff here. He`s one of the best photographers around.
