Booth Setup


We are currently working on a Booth setup which includes a showroom of the latest developments in our beloved distribution which will be around release candidate one (RC1) during that time and we plan to release and show the next generation Build Service. The booth will also feature hack sessions for contributors, or people who want to become one, lead by the openSUSE Boosters. In these up and close hack sessions, with a small number of participants, a Booster will teach you all about a way to contribute to openSUSE and/or open source in general. Topics include hacking your first plasmoid, rolling your first package in the build service, fixing your first openSUSE bug or building your first distribution with KIWI.

So grab your laptop and make yourself ready to go to Berlin! Oh and if you are interested in helping to plan or man our booth, have ideas for a hack-session we could do or in general want to get in touch with us about LinuxTag don’t miss the openSUSE Project Meetings every other Wednesday on IRC. Looking forward to see you there.

Both comments and pings are currently closed.

    Great to hear about the participation of the Project and all those talks at LinuxTag 2010,
    Just one little request:

    Would it be possible to record the Talks and to upload them on the openSUSE TV channel???

    I am sure this would be very welcome by those who cannot attend the event

    Good luck with the preparations
