10:30-10:45 Opening  
10:45-11:30 Implementation and performance using Raspberry Pi and OpenCV
Speaker:Nabaua(Kazuhiko Inaba)(twitter)
Language: Japanese

In this session I use OpenCV, and I confirm the performance of the camera from Raspberry Pi on OS (raspbian).I demonstrate OpenCV and demonstrate the performance mainly using the camera. The programming language will be talked about Python, but I will also explain it in C or C ++ for performance.
Open Build Service in Debian
Speaker: Andrew Lee (李健秋) (qa.debian.org)
Language: English

Open Build Service is a generic system to build and distribute packages from sources in an automatic, consistent and reproducible way.
11:30-13:00 lunch and PGP/GPG keysign party  
13:00-13:30 Debian Installer for Buffalo Linkstation
Speaker:Roger Shimizu (qa.debian.org,github)
Language: Japanese

Introduce how to install Debian on embedded device with neither VGA/HDMI port nor keyboard. It will take Buffalo Linkstation NAS as sample device and explain the tips on newly supported GNU/Screen on Stretch’s Debian Installer.
OSS license 101
Speaker: Hideki Yamane (qa.debian.org)
Language: Japanese
presentation-file:slide,source of slide,slideshare

GNU GPL, BSD, MIT, Apache…, various representative OSS licenses are adopted for software used in Debian, but do you know what features each has, and do you know how you can classify it? In this session, it is time to share rudimentary knowledge and make it a material for judgment, such as which license is suitable (especially for developers). (disclaimer: I am not a lawyer)
13:45-14:15 Processing device tree information in Linux kernel
Speaker: Takashi Sakamoto (qa.debian.org,twitter,github)
Language: Japanese

Recently we have much devices with ARM application processor. For example, in some sessions in this track, we’ve already see Raspberry Pi and Buffalo Link station. Such devices have own hardware design even if using the same processor core. In Linux development project, the hardware differences are represented by Device Tree, to maintain portability. In this session, I explain about the way to process hardware information which is represented by Device Tree, focusing on system boot time.
How to make software written in Go language into Debian package
Speaker: Haruki Tsurumoto (qa.debian.org,twitter,github)
Language: Japanese
presentation-file:slide,source of slide

As a feature of Go language, the program is compiled by this are basically statically linked, easy to cross-compile, and have a good portability. Building software using Golang is also easy, but if the created program is useful for those who do not have the build environment of Go language, if you can distribute the binaries built on the distributor side, the software will be much easier to use. To do this, it is possible to distribute the build binary, but this method has several problems. Once you have the software in the official archive of the distribution, you can solve some of these problems. So I will explain how to package software written in Go language to solve this model in Debian.
14:30-15:00 Free TLS server using Certbot
Speaker: Kazuhiro Nishiyama
Language: Japanese
presentation-file:slide,source code

After introducing the overview of Certbot and Let’s Encrypt, I will show you how to issue and operate Let’s Encrypt’s free certificate in the certbot package. I will lightly introduce the environment already put in the erts of the letsencrypt package and how to migrate from the letsencrypt-auto (certbot-auto) environment. In addition, I will also introduce the settings devised by actual operation etc.
I tried packaging Emacs’s verilog-mode
Speaker: Kiwamu Okabe (qa.debian.org,facebook,twitter,github)
Language: Japanese

Debian has never had a package for Emacs verilog-mode. So I will introduce the flow of packaging in the latest Emacs mode from experience when I created the package. Also, I point out that the existence of the xemacs package becomes a hindrance by an appearance of dh-elpa for Debian community.
15:00-15:30 Break and group photo  
15:30-16:15 FOSS virtual singer 徴音梅林 and platform LINNE
Speaker: MGdesigner / 張正一
Language: English

We are 徴音梅林開発委員會 from Taiwan. Our vision is a real free open source virtual singer on GNU/Linux system and other OSs . Last year, we had released vocal DB 徴音梅林 ,who can sing Japanese(done),and Mandarin(in process) under CC-BY license. Everyone can use her freely. We not only made the vocal DB,but also set the open source toolchain stack “LINNE” which is based on Dr.森勢将雅’s ‘WORLD’ algorithm. I wish more people join us to make 徴音梅林 and LINNE perform better on Debian Linux.
Create Linux environment for embedded using Debian source code
Speaker: Yoshitake Kobayashi (github)
Language: Japanese

Debian is running on many development boards, but when using it for embedded devices, it is necessary to create a customized Linux environment incorporating only necessary component. In this presentation, I will introduce the Poky build system built by Yocto Project and meta layer, meta-debian for Poky which creates a customized Linux environment using Debian source code. Also, I would like to discuss how to feed back the results to Debian.
16:30-17:00 GnuPG Now!
Speaker: NIIBE Yutaka (qa.debian.org)
Language: Japanese

I explain recent development of GnuPG. I also address Debian changes in forthcoming release of Stretch. While the practice of Debian for its OpenPGP curated key rings is important, well, it’s so important for its integrity, I think that its practice of key signing party is difficult for normal users to join. Fortunately, we are now developing new features of WKD and ToFU, which allow easier maintenance of public keys. When it will be adopted, more casual use of GnuPG will be possible (collectively). In fact, when we had an international expert meeting in September, although we had schedule for KSP in the program, the traditional rigid-style key sign party was not done, but people continued their technical discussions instead. Indeed, it’s difficult to judge the authenticity of passport of unknown country, sometimes. And passing passport to stranger is considered dangerous, in some cases.
Let’s customize Firefox in Debian
Speaker: Kentaro Hayashi (twitter)
Language: Japanese

I will introduce another way of customizing your Firefox with Debian.
17:15-17:45 DebConf 2018 in Taiwan bid preparation and status updates
