Update at oSC15

May 2nd, 2015 by

20150501_133621The community kicked off the first day of the openSUSE Conference in The Hague, Netherlands, with tons of exciting news about project.

Keynote speaker Markus Feilner gave a brief overview of trending topics for this year’s conference.

One of topics was Richard Brown’s “The Future is Unwritten” presentation about building the perfect regular release using new source code from SUSE Linux Enterprise submitted into the Open Build Service. Using this source code, Richard was advocating for a new, more stable and well maintained release with a life cycle of three years or more, which would provide engineering efforts to focus on common elements between SLE and openSUSE.

Next Week is Hack Week!

April 10th, 2015 by

Hack Week, a week where openSUSE/SUSE hackers experiment without limits! It’s the opportunity to innovate, collaborate across teams, and learn. The only rule is: Do what you want, but do it!

Hack Week 12

Many openSUSE/SUSE hackers use this opportunity to work on an activity of their passion and judging from the submitted ideas on hackweek.suse.com there is plenty of passion in the community!

Be it porting openSUSE to new and exciting hardware (Firefly-RK3288 or Intel Quark X1000) and architectures (MIPS). Improving our tools like OpenQA, YaST or OSEM. Making the life of openSUSE users more secure with better disk encryption, SSL pinning or a GNOME password manager. Nerding off with improving disassembly in gdb, porting a fake signal optimization to kGraft or diving into functional programming together. Or how about some more earthly passions like improving yourself or simply jamming together to improve Free Software?

We are sure that in the end, the 12th incarnation of this event, will give birth to one of the next big openSUSE/SUSE innovations. Like so many Hack Weeks before have! Just think about zypp and zypper, the openSUSE ARM port or YaST in Ruby.

So when next week is Hack Week, support the openSUSE/SUSE hackers where you can when they explore strange new languages, seek out new tools and new communities, when they boldly go where no hacker has gone before!

Call for hosts for openSUSE.Asia Summit 2015

April 2nd, 2015 by
openSUSE Asia Summit 2014

Submit proposals for the openSUSE Asia Summit 2015

The openSUSE.Asia organization committee is inviting proposals to host the openSUSE.Asia Summit during the later half of 2015. The openSUSE.Asia Summit is the featured annual openSUSE conference in Asia.

The event focuses primarily on the openSUSE distribution, and also covers desktop environments, applications and the development platform tools. It brings together the openSUSE community in Asia to provide a forum for users, developers, foundation leaders, governments and businesses to discuss both the present technology and future developments.

Last Summit

The first openSUSE.Asia Summit was held in Beijing in 2014. The Summit’s preference is to find new locations each year as we spread openSUSE throughout Asia, and we are looking for local organizers to rise to the challenge of organizing an excellent openSUSE event. The openSUSE.Asia organization committee will assist in the process, but there is a definitive need for individuals to be actively involved and committed to the planning and delivery of the event.

You can learn more about openSUSE.Asia Summit at our official website: https://events.opensuse.org/conference/summitasia14
