The week starting on April 8 will be Hack Week 9 at SUSE! The SUSE engineers will be free to work on projects of their passion for a week. They work in teams or alone on projects, personal, upstream or new. Hackweek takes place both on-line and at SUSE offices all over the world. Each location has a program for the week itself but right now we’re in preparation mode. As always, we try to make the event as open as possible (that’s why we use github) so you can see what we’re planning and can join in the fun! (more…)
The focus of the track of talks and workshops will be on the use of Open Source and SUSE products in business, both for the primary company mission and for support functions. Join key SUSE engineers and maangers to hear about the latest developments in:
- Systems Management

and many others. The full schedule is here.
The track is aimed at CIOs, CTOs, IT executives and managers, as well as
staff in IT interested in new technologies, challenges and opportunities
offered by Open Source.
Attendance is free, but please register at the conference website. We look forward to seeing you there!
What have the boot speed of openSUSE, a sandbox for KVM development, OpenStack, CUPS, Linux UEFI support and Enlightenment 17 to do with each other?

Past projects have resulted in awesome tools like SUSE Paste, Debian support in OBS and of course Hackweek 7 brought us ARM in OBS! Read on to find out a some projects which were worked on and a bit about the results. (more…)
