Open Source Conference 2013 Nagoya

Nagoya is very interesting city in Japan.  People in Nagoya has lots of special culture; great morning set in coffee shops (kissa-ten), yummy foods, and in computer world, they love functional programming and BSD ;)

Anyway, this post is short summarized translation of the Japanese report on TDF wiki.  I've not attend, but I hope you may know how active Japanese LibreOffice community is by my (not good) English translation.  Enjoy!

Ubuntu Magazine Japan 2013 Summer

This post is mainly for readers who can read Japanese, but it is an example how Japanese Ubuntu community is active :)

Some of you may know we Japanese has Ubuntu-specific magazine in Japanese language.  The magazine, "Ubuntu Magazine Japan" (in Japan, we called "うぶまが," pronounced "ubu-maga")'s new issue "2013 Summer" has just published today.

In this issue I've written only 2 pages (introduction of Kodak i2600 scanner), anyway its so nice as usual and I love it.  Must buy!

  • Very cute labeled DVD-ROM (13.04 Japanese Remix bootable, and lots of stuffs)
  • What's new of Raring Ringtail (13.04)
  • LibreOffice 4.0 Perfect guide
  • Gaming platform Steam on Ubuntu!
  • Ubuntu Touch; how to use, and how to develop your software
  • Go with Xubuntu!
  • Good series: Re-introductive guide of command line
  • And so nice two manga!
For LibreOffice people, the LibreOffice guide is really "perfect" guide of 4.0 so you must read (if you can read Japanese).

The publisher, ASCII Media Works (AMW) also provide Kindle version so it is good for people doesn't live in Japan:

In addition, Kindle version is cheaper than paper version (but I still love paper).

And AMW has their own e-book publisher BOOK☆WALKER so you can use.  Here is a Ubuntu Magazine Japan page.  Of course you can try it.

Please enjoy the nice magazine :)
