Is OS Summit Asia a new type of conference for China?

This is the first year for OS Summit Asia and it seems we are blazing some new territory for developer conferences in China. Aaron Farr is one of the conference organizers, is located in Hong Kong and has written an interesting blog post about how OS Summit Asia is going to be different than other conferences he has attended in Asia. The key conclusion is that OS Summit Asia is a developers conference with lots of technical content.

What are others experiences of attending conferences in China? Have people attended other developer oriented conferences in China?

btw, I also interested in what are the popular developer oriented portals/magazines in China.
