A lot of people have been involved with the openSUSE Conference and I’ve heard a lot of people saying thanks for a great conference. This is supported by 290 attendees visiting our conference, listened to a number of talks, enjoyed a high quality program and even more important met people face to face and had a lot of fun. The conference as it took place last week wouldn’t have been possible without our community participating, sending in good talks and a number of folks preparing everything. Of the latter ones let me point out some:
First of all: All the participants (see above for the group that was still there on Saturday afternoon) and the speakers. Special thanks to Frank Karlitschek and Michael Kromer for filling two Saturday slots last minute.
The first person to show up in the morning and the last one in the evening was Michael Löffler. He also did a great job in preparing the conference which included organizing the venue and getting our sponsors on board.
The program committee did a great job of selecting talks and tracks for good program under the motto “Collaboration about borders”. Thanks to Andrew, Cornelius, Gnokii, Jan, Jos, Klaas, Michl, and Vincent.
Anne drove the mini bus to the tram in the mornings and evenings to make it easy for those not staying at the conference venue to come to it.
Alexia did some preparation of the conference remotely from the US.
Also, a special thanks to our sponsors without whom this conference would not have been possible at all: Novell as main sponsor, B1 Systems sponsored the party, open-slx took care of the shuttle service, Nokia/Qt supported us with some € and Linux Magazin as media partner.
Last but not least, a big thanks to the friendly staff from the Berufsförderungswerk.
