As I wrote wiki page of the Document Foundation, Open Source Conference is the most important event series in the Japanese FLOSS world.
Of course Tokyo is the biggest city in Japan, and we have OSC two time each year; Spring and Fall. Recently OSC Tokyo had been hosted Meisei University, which is little far from center of Tokyo, but around of 2,000 FLOSS lovers gathers OSC Tokyo. Amazing!
We, MongoDB JP (MongoDB Users Group (MUG) in Japan), exhibited booth 2 days, and had a session in Saturday. It was our first exhibit to OSC.
Friday morning. Start quietly...
In the booth, we demonstrated a small Web program to find out nearest shops users want using geospacial index and Google Maps API. Everyone amazed how simple query can do this.
We made leaflet to explain about very basic of MongoDB, and MongoDB JP ourselves. According to remaining it, 158 people have it, lots of people have interest about MongoDB. Great!
Hundreds people in the room, and many people enjoyed our demo and deep tech talk.
And Mr. Watanabe's talk gathered almost hundred people. Wow!
Yes, it was little hard 2 days (I was very tired, haha), but, all of we really enjoyed that great time.
Thanks for everyone visited our booth and attended our talk!
And our fellows, Ogawa-san, Fuzisaki-san, Fukuzaki-san, Kubota-san and Watanabe-san! Good jop!
