LinuxCon + ContainerCon + CloudOpen (LC3) was held on June 19-20, 2017 at the China National Convention Center in Beijing. LinuxCon was already successfully held in North America, Europe and Japan during the past few years. Now it finally came to China.
During the opening ceremony Jim Zemlin, Executive Director of The Linux Foundation, said: “In recent years, China’s developers and organizations have grown rapidly in terms of open source participation and contribution, which is why it is important to hold LinuxCon in China, and we hope that this conference will help more Chinese developers enter the open source community.” I am convinced that the conference indeed already helped a lot!
On the second day of the conference, our SUSE CTO Thomas Di Giacomo gave a keynote named “After 25 Years, Where Are We?”. Yes, SUSE is turning 25 in 2017. Happy Birthday SUSE!
Looking back the past two decades, IT and industry landscapes have changed significantly: open source and Linux in particular have been extensively adopted across all industries, which in turn has also inspired many new open source projects to start and further develop.
Apart from the keynote, we had four deeply skilled speakers from SUSE contributing to the conference program, who talked about highly attention-grabbing topics:
Alan Clark, the Director for Industry Initiatives, Emerging Standards and Open Source at SUSE, captivated the attendees with his talk “OpenStack: Growing and Adapting in Today’s World of Rapid Change”
“Much Ado About Blocking: Wait/Wake in the Linux Kernel” was the title of the presentation from Davidlohr Bueso, who is Performance Engineer at the SUSE Labs
Simona Arsene is Product Manager in the SUSE Linux Enterprise Team and talked about “Rethinking the OS: A Travel Journal“
Last but not least, Coly (Yong) Li, Software Engineer Consultant from the SUSE Labs, shared his insight regarding “MD RAID1 and NVMe: High Performance Data Duplication“
Although there were many presentations scheduled in parallel, the speeches given by our colleagues always attracted a lot of attendees. It’s definitely my honor to witness and report that SUSE, as one of the diamond sponsors, successfully caught the eyes of attendees, media representatives and enterprises during LC3 2017.
