The weather is sunny than yesterday. However we arrived a little late than expected
We got a seat in the booth for distribute the Fedora 21 DVDs. As I am here without other Fedora guys, I have to handle the booth as well as some speaker related things and thus I can not stay in the booth for long. So I we just put up a sign as “Serve yourself” during the time I am not there.
The conference begins with the introduction of the event and then comes the keynote from Amazon AWS. Then there are 5 parallel tracks however I am not interested in any of the topics so I just come back to the booth.
After lunch, I met with Jeff from Anthon OS community. We talked a lot on community developing, and a lot of other interesting things. We all agree that when a community is not so big (we do not have so many ambassadors offline in Beijing and their community overall is also very small) we should take the current members in to great conserdation so that we can keep with the current contributors and then we can extend the community.
By the closing of the first day, we distributed out about 70 Live DVDs.
It seems mandarin here is not widely understood while I knew few of Cantonese, so I have to use English to help the local people to understand my mandarin during the daily life. I was not sleeping well last night so after the event I head directly to the hotel.

Arrived at Hong Kong by a little late than 4 PM today, we hurried to check-in to the hotel first. It seems that mandarin is not public acceptable here in Hong Kong. So we should use English in many situations.

Then I set off for the pre-event. It starts at 7:00 PM as a social talks. And people are so enjoying in social that the dinner starts pretty late.

 

pre-event of HKOSCon 2015 hkoscon2015-2

During the social time, I talked with some guys about Fedora. One of the local guy thinks Fedora is pretty good at Desktop. So he still uses it a lot. And he told me that there used to be a lot of Fedora activities. But nowadays Fedora shows up less than before so there are not so many activities.

I also have a talk with an engineer from Red Hat Hong Kong. He told me that he is a daily Fedora user and he really enjoys a lot. And in his view many guys in Hong Kong expect Fedora ARM for open source boards such as (especially Raspberry Pi). As too many parts of Raspberry Pi only ships with proprietary drivers only so it does not meet the guideline of Fedora.

During a talk with Poren from SITCON from Taiwan, he told me that workshop is a great way to attract new guys in Taiwan. I think it is a good idea and maybe we can have more workshop events later in mainland.

We also talked a lot during the meal. And it’s really great to hear different ideas. Hope it will be a wonderful day for the following events.
