Ben Chou, a Software Engineer from SUSE’s Quality Assurance team in Taipei, discussed continuous integration and the capabilities of using Jenkins.
Dominique Leuenberger, who traveled from Switzerland, provided a presentation about the complexities of building the fast paced, updated versions of openSUSE Tumbleweed using controls to eliminate the risk of breaking users systems.
Michal Hrusecky, who is on the openSUSE board, traveled from Czech Republic to provide the keynote speech for the second-annual summit and updated the attendees about the progress of the openSUSE project.
