And it's the last day of LCA2019. Much wailing and gnashing of teeth. It has been a fantastic three (or five) days with lots of great presentations and other conversations. I've been to lots of conferences over the years but none of them have the positive vibe that LCA has.
Currently running at about half yesterdays temperature here in Christchurch... The quality of the weather might be fluctuating but the quality of the presentations is as high as ever!
A beautiful day in Christchurch... one attendee claims the temperature has hit 39o Not so sure about that but yes, it is pretty warm... warm enough to cause stress and stress does funny things to people with Type 1 diabetes so what better way to start the day with a keynote speech from Dana Lewis from The Open Artificial Pancreas System Project.
I spent most of today in the Security Miniconf stream LCA2019... I don't know if I should be happy or sad about the fact that nearly 40 years after I started my IT career we are still struggling with security as a concept... On the happy side my skills and experience are still valid but on the sad side, really? 40 years on and we are still can't get it right??
Actually it's day two of LCA2019 here in sunny Christchurch... I broke my password on day one :-(
For those of you unaware of what this is all about the details are at https://linux.conf.au/ . I have enjoyed catching up with some familiar faces along with meeting some not so familiar ones.
