Beijing Software Freedom Day

[ #37499 ]
today i went to the beijing software freedom day (SFD). hosted in ThoughtWorks office in beijing. there were another SFD hosted in different location at the same time. SFD is to celebrate software freedom and promote open source and is happening around the world.

there were about 70 (UPDATE: 130+ people) people attended and several talks and panel discussions presented. i got an opportunity to plug the coming beijing perl workshop in front of everyone. i also held my first panel discussion on 'open source localization and document translation', mozilla localization, wikipedia translation and i18n-zh project and more were discussed.

SFD is a half day event. we finished it around 5:30pm then free books were given to speakers and a last minute talk on GIS was had.

18 of us headed off for some chinese food after SFD. food was good but i spent most of the time talking to sun's oss community manager and a ex-military self-learned game developer.

all in all, it was good time and i really enjoyed it. nice to see OSS movement like this happening in china.
