Wednesday openSUSE Community Week Sessions

May 13th, 2009 by

The openSUSE Community Week is going strong! The fun kicks up a notch Wednesday with sessions with the openSUSE Board and a workshop with the openSUSE Weekly News team, in addition to sessions with the GNOME and KDE teams, testing and QA, and much more.

Our community week is a chance to get people from around the world together at the same time to focus on specific topics, and to transfer knowledge about openSUSE to help grow our teams. The idea is to cover topics to improve our community by broadening our knowledge, and to enable new contributors to openSUSE and open source.
