Yggdrasil and Hollywood

I didn't mention Hugo Weaving because a superhero movie is a credible source for accuracy, but for reference because he happened to be accurate. :-)

I am aware of the conference, but frankly I haven't seen anything in the schedule that would draw me there. It's a mix of corporate promotion, blockchain and random student projects ... nothing about languages or development frameworks or services, which is what interests me the most. I don't feel a free software pulse there, no work toward building a Hong Kong free software community.
