openSUSE.Asia Summit 2021 online, Faridabad, India
India was accepted to host the openSUSE.Asia Summit 2020. Due of Covid 19 pandemic we had to cancel the event. As the world has shifted from physical mode to digital made, we with the support of openSUSE.Asia committee members proposed to organize openSUSE.Asia summit 2021 in online mode. We are glad that our proposal is accepted by openSUSE board.
The supporters of openSUSE in India, and of Free/Libre Open Source Software (FLOSS) at large are excited to organize
the most awaited openSUSE.Asia Summit event. In this activity, experts, contributors, end users, and technology enthusiasts
will gather to share experiences about the development of openSUSE and other things related to FLOSS and have a lot of fun.
The venue for the openSUSE.Asia Summit was chosen after being proposed by the Indian community during
openSUSE.Asia Summit 2019 in Bali, Indonesia. The
Asian committee decided Faridabad as the host of
openSUSE.Asia Summit 2021 from August 6 to August 8, 2021, at
Manav Rachna International Institute of Research & Studies, Faridabad.
Goals to be achieved in the online openSUSE.Asia Summit 2021 include:
- To promote openSUSE in India.
- To attract new contributors for openSUSE from India and other Asian countries.
- To provide an alternative to the wider community that FLOSS can be a powerful tool for doing their daily job.
- To provide a platform for sharing user and developer experiences.
openSUSE.Asia Summit 2021 will immediately open a call for paper for prospective speakers.
In addition, a logo competition for the openSUSE.Asia Summit 2021 will also be opened.
This would surely be an opportunity for designers in Asia to compete with each other to show their abilities and contribute
to this activity. More details about the above information will be informed in the near future through news.opensuse.org.
See you online !!
