openSUSE Community Week runs from May 11 through May 17. 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 empower ourselves as a community by broadening our knowledge, and to enable new contributors to openSUSE and open source. The week is starting off with sessions in GNOME, KDE, packaging, and much more.
As a reminder — all sessions are being held in IRC. If you need help getting started with IRC, see the openSUSE wiki for more. The entire week’s schedule can be found on the wiki. Here’s a quick overview of scheduled sessions for Monday, May 11th.
- GNOME Packaging Day starts at 08:00 UTC with introductory sessions at 08:00 and 17:00 UTC in the #opensuse-gnome channel on Freenode.
- KDE Desktop Shell (Plasma) session with Rob Scheepmaker and Marco Martin from the KDE Plasma team at 16:00 UTC in the #opensuse-kde channel on Freenode.
- Packaging: Creating a package step by step – hands on session in the #opensuse-buildservice channel on Freenode at 09:00 UTC.
- Testing: How to get started with Testing and QA in the #opensuse-testing channel on Freenode at 15:00 UTC.
And there will be plenty of openSUSE contributors in #opensuse-project for general questions about openSUSE and getting started as a contributor.
