The linux.conf.au conference
After the CCC, the LCA (Linux Conference Australia) is over. This year, the conference took place in New Zealand. Here's some talks I have liked:
- A talk by Keith Packard on the advances with glamor. It's interesting and there's more than was presented at XDC 2014. So a nice update !
- The keynote with Linus and others, which is essentialy a Q&A, but that's fine. Linus ofen pretend to be not as good as people expect him to be, and he likes to say he's a bad person. Anyway he's a charismatic person with strong ideas, so hearing him arging is always interesting. In this talk I have appreciated the remarks on "vocal minority" with systemd and complex programs that will remain complex even with documentation (some taste of lived situations in previous lifes);
- I have liked too that talk on installing a debian for friends and family. Nothing exceptionnal or very new, but that's the kind of talk where you hear about neat tools that you didn't know;
- I have also found interesting the presentation of David Airlie on MST (Multi Stream Transport) display support;
- a nice talk on optimization of shaders in MESA;
It's only the one that have appreciated the most, if you want to make your own opinion, go and watch the corresponding youtube channel.
