DTrace at Yokohama Linux User Group

kato dtrace zfs japanIn my job I meet a lot of interesting engineers. That’s why I like what I do. I don’t really get the technology that deeply, but I do very much find the people fascinating. It’s the people who build communities. It’s the people who create history.

Anyway, one character I know here in Tokyo is Hisayoshi Kato (blog, twitter). He’s a core developer in the Japan OpenSolaris community. He’ll be presenting DTrace at the Yokohama Linux User Group (YLUG) Monday night March 29th (and don’t forget DTrace Day on the 27th at the OpenSolaris User Group). If you know Japanese and you want to know DTrace, you should go to these presentations. Everyone is welcome.

Kato-san presented DTrace at the Tokyo Linux User Group a while back, and he’s done technical talks at many FOSS conferences and user groups meetings throughout Japan. He also knows a bunch about ZFS, too. He’s a co-author of this book on ZFS, which is an original work in Japanese. And finally, if you are are going to the Linux Foundation Collaboration Summit in San Francisco in April, you may bump into Kato-san there as well. Hopefully, he’ll be able to meet up with some OpenSolaris guys in the Bay Area during the Linux conference.

BarCamp Coming to Yokohama, Japan

Excellent to see BarCamp Yokohama being planned for late November. I will surely participate if I am in town. The event will be held at the Yokohama International School, so education will likely be top of mind (as it should be). We held a BarCamp in Tokyo back in May. This is what it looked like. Hugely successful conference -- organized by the community for the community. All BarCamps are slightly different, so it will be fascinating to see BarCamp Yokohama emerge its own way.
