Before the dawn of 2015 and as announced at oSC14  work has already started for yet another awesome openSUSE Conference. For 2015 the city of The Hague in theNetherlands will host our Annual Conference. This year the openSUSE community is gearing up and is ready to accept people from everywhere to a 4 day conference where there will be a lot of Learning and Hacking and Partying. The organizing team needs YOUR HELP to make this happen. So starting today you can sign up to join forces!Hans2

Whatever your skill level you are welcome to participate. We are looking for people willing to help out with A/V, Design, Networking, Promotion, Software, finding Speakers and helping out with the Venue itself. Join us for an awesome ride, with a fantastic destination. Make it your own event!

Anyone is welcome to participate! To do so:

openSUSE Release Party Athens
Fosscomm (Free and Open Source Software Communities Meeting) is an annual conference for Free and Open Software. It’s organized from the Greek open source community for the Greek open source community in a different city of Greece each year. It’s an annual meeting for people who love open source technology, beers and party!

Of course the Greek openSUSE Community couldn’t miss this chance for having fun, drink beers, meet new people and talk about the technologies that openSUSE 12.3 has and the magnificent openSUSE Conference at Thessaloniki. (more…)

Rest in peace, daemon.

Our fellow and long time openSUSE contributor Marco “daemon” Michna has passed away last week.

He was a friend to many of us, and will be sorely missed.

Our condolences and sympathy go out to his family and friends.

Daemon, dear friend, rest in peace.
