I've just got through the first one and a half days of
LCA2011 in Brisbane. The organisers have done a
great job, especially considering the
they have had to deal with.
Due to the venue change the accommodation I booked is no longer within
walking distance of the conference, but the public transport is pretty
good. A bit more concerning was the following change to the wiki made
between the time I left Perth and the time I checked in:
I've been impressed with the conference talks I've been to so far. In
particular, I liked Silvia Pfeiffer's talk on audio/video processing
with HTML5 – I'll have to have a play with some of this. Today's
keynote was by Vint Cerf about
the history of internet protocols and what the challenges will be in the
future (e.g. InterPlaNet).
There was a talk today about Redis: it sounded like
interesting technology, but the talk didn't really give enough
information to say when you'd choose it over other systems.
