Many people are anxiously awaiting for the release of openSUSE Leap 42.3 next week, but before the release arrives, you can prepare for a Release Party to celebrate the upcoming achievement with members of the open-source and openSUSE community.
Host your own Release Party. If you don’t know how to do this, there is a list of five steps to have a successful release party. Plus more details are listed below on how to have a fantastic party.
Selecting a good date and having some goodies to pass out to the party requires a bit of planning. The checklist below can help with planning the release party. If you plan on having a party, email ddemaio (at) suse.de well before the party to get some goodies to hand out to the party people. Please include “Leap 42.3 Party” in the subject line and include a mailing address and phone number.
Find a date
The date of a party is best during a weekend (because it’s easier for people to join, since most people work during the week), but we all function differently. Find two alternative dates for the party if you want and use //www.doodle.com/ to find a common date that works for most people.
Find a place
A cafe, bar or Linux group meetup location are all great places to have an event. A coffee and cake release party is just as fun as a beer and pizza release party.
Pictures, pictures, pictures
PromoDVDs, webcam covers and stickers – If we can get it to you without too much red tape from governments, we will; just email ddemaio (at) suse.de with Release Party.
IMPORTANT TIP: Schedule your release party on the wiki and have a lot of fun!
