FUDCON + GNOME.Asia Beijing 2014

Thanks to the funding from FUDCON I had the chance to attend and keynote at the combined FUDCON Beijing 2014 and GNOME.Asia 2014 conference in Beijing, China.

My talk was about systemd's present and future, what we achieved and where we are going. In my talk I tried to explain a bit where we are coming from, and how we changed focus from being purely an init system, to more being a set of basic building blocks to build an OS from. Most of the talk I talked about where we still intend to take systemd, which areas we believe should be covered by systemd, and of course, also the always difficult question, on where to draw the line and what clearly is outside of the focus of systemd. The slides of my talk you find online. (No video recording I am aware of, sorry.)

The combined conferences were a lot of fun, and as usual, the best discussions I had in the hallway track, discussing Linux and systemd.

A number of pictures of the conference are now online. Enjoy!

After the conference I stayed for a few more days in Beijing, doing a bit of sightseeing. What a fantastic city! The food was amazing, we tried all kinds of fantastic stuff, from Peking duck, to Bullfrog Sechuan style. Yummy. And one of those days I am sure I will find the time to actually sort my photos and put them online, too.

I am really looking forward to the next FUDCON/GNOME.Asia!
