Announcing ENOS 2008

August 11th, 2008 by
ENOS

The acronym ENOS stands for ‘Encontro Nacional de openSUSE‘, a Portuguese expression which can be translated to ‘National openSUSE Meeting‘, an event meant to unite the Portuguese openSUSE users, as well as provide the participants an inside view into the latest developments in the openSUSE project and stimulate them to take an active part in the community itself.

ENOS 2008 is the second yearly edition (read about ENOS 2007 here) of the event and will be held in Instituto Superior de Engenharia do Porto, Porto, Portugal on Saturday, 6 September.

 

 

Talks

This year we will have special guests giving some talks:

  • Carlos Gonçalves (openSUSE member) bringing up the openSUSE 11.0 news.
  • Ricardo Cruz (YaST-GTK maintainer) will introduce us YaST and how easily is to create a module for it. PackageKit and libzypp will be be introduced.
  • Andreia Gaita (Mono developer) presenting Mono open source project, sponsored by Novell.
  • Rui Capela (Linux Audio hacker) will talk about his audio applications, focusing on Qtractor, an Audio/MIDI multi-track sequencer application.

    Great idea! There should be a similar event to this in Germany!

  2. Well, you could easily organize one. For sure there would be many people in German interested in helping you with it!
    Just think about it ;-)

  3. And how about Ukraine?
    There are no one who can do something like this in our country, I think. :(
