openSUSE Asia summit needs Python Developers

July 24th, 2014 by

The news writer from SUSE office snuck into the openSUSE Asia’s trello board and found that they will use an open source voting tool for their upcoming halpevents. Snoek is a voting tool developed during the SUSE Hackweek by Beijing R&D Team, SUSE. Snoek is written in Django and is eagerly seeking out more django developers to add more features to it like OpenID support and richer (picture, link) voting item support.

Source code of snoek can be found at : https://github.com/yifanjiang/snoek
and Yifan has also written a nice https://github.com/yifanjiang/snoek/blob/master/README to get you started.

All that is required is a little django and python knowledge from a fellow Geeko.

As a big “Thank you” for your efforts, the developer will also receive a free tee shirt shipped to his place.

July 14th, 2014 by

The first ever openSUSE Summit in Asia will take place in Beihang University, Beijing on October 18th and 19th, 2014. We aim to promote the use of openSUSE and other free open source software in the region. We will have a series of talks, discussions and workshops that will induct people into the openSUSE Project. The goal of the Summit is to provide a platform for everyone to understand openSUSE so that it becomes easier to use and contribute to it. It is also a great opportunity for openSUSE contributors and users from all over Asia who have only been interacting online with each other so far, to meet face to face. And to learn about various free and open technologies, sharing experiences with each other and having a lot of fun.

So what are you waiting for? Come join us in beautiful Bejing!
