Open Source Conference Tokyo Fall 2018

I forgot to report on Open Source Conference (OSC) Tokyo/Fall 2018. This is probably about the 8th time I attend OSC, but I have only reported it a couple of times. The next one will be in February!

As usual, the event was held at Meisei University, about 15 minutes walk from the Tama Zoo and its station. Actually, I'm embarrassed to say that I have never visited the zoo. Maybe I'll do next time.

The talks. You can find them listed on the event website both for the 27th and 28th sessions. The first talk I went to was given by ftake, and it was useful to catch up with  Btrfs and its transactional updates. I also attended a talk about project Sebastien (android sample).

Apart from the talks, the booths were impressive as usual. In particular, I got interested in Musashino's which was full of second-hand routers modified to run OpenWRT. Some keywords I annotated while I was checking out the booths:

Conclusions: going to OSC is always a good learning experience. I got interested in hacking some second-hand router. I also found super cool the telescope made by @nanbuwks, and I was impressed by Murachue's Linux porting to the Nintendo64.
