openSUSE Summit Was Geeko Awesome

November 18th, 2013 by

Orlando - not so sunny

Our openSUSE Summit 2013 has just finished here in Orlando. We were hosted in a Mexican themed hotel in the area of Disney World, with our own special area setup nicely for our presentations and workshops. The location was a nice new touch for the geeko friends to reconnect and collaborate, if only because there was a large number of lizards all around here!

Weather wasn’t very loving down here in Florida, USA but being in such a family-like get together, it didn’t really matter. (more…)

The second call will start on October 11, 2013 ending on October 17, 2013. The results before October 22, 2013. Important to say that the second call is for those who had applied on CfP and didn’t have answer before the first call ends.

Do not forget… The Call for Participation still opened so hurry up!

openSUSE Summit 2013 logo
It has already been a year since the first iteration of the openSUSE Summit held in Orlando Florida. Our guests and organizers agreed that tying this community event at the end of SUSEcon is a very good idea and it was set to be repeated in 2013 as well. If you live in the Northern part of the U.S.A. then you know that November can be very cold, therefore, our organizers decided to go back to Florida this year and have everyone warm up to the never-ending summer in the peach state. Our event website is up and running and registrations are open! (more…)

openSUSE Summit Website Adds Spanish Translations

April 23rd, 2012 by

summit esThe openSUSE Summit team has been working hard over the last weeks to add Spanish translations to the website. As the openSUSE Summit is meant to be an ‘Americas’ event, we aim to create a dual-language conference, accommodating both the Spanish and English speaking visitors. The exact language distribution of talks will strongly depends on the talks submitted, so we’d urge our Spanish speaking community to submit talk proposals in Spanish!
