Red Hat Asian Pacific FY13 Partner Conference in Beijing China

I have just returned from a two week trip to Beijing, China. I was there the second week for the Red Hat Asian Pacific FY13  Partner Conference, an event setup for the Red Hat Partners from the Asian Pacific region.

It was filled with sessions on all things JBoss and Red Hat, with me giving two talks focused around the JBoss Way and demos for dummies with JBoss BRMS. The sessions were short but pretty packed with lots of different cultures, with translators provided in booths in the back of the room. It was strange to present to a group with headphones on and have them laugh at your jokes about 2 minutes after you told them!

I have included a link to the pictures of the event, including the cultural dances and shows that were part of the fun. With over 40% more attendees than last year it was a great success. I think the final count was 215 partners attending. I look forward to it next year!
