There are 15 more days to submit a proposal for the openSUSE Conference in Nuremberg June 22 – 26, so I would like to provide an update to the community about the conference.
As you might already be aware, there will be SaltStack, ownCloud, Kolab and SUSE Labs summits during the conference and we also plan on having a program for kids on Saturday, June 25.
The planning of the conference is coming along well. There will be a pre-conference party at the Kater Murr starting at 7 p.m. June 21. There will be plenty of entertainment during the week as well.
Everyday, there will be a keynote. The keynote speakers who have confirmed are Norman Fraser, Ph.D., who is the CEO of SoftIron, Frank Karlitschek from ownCloud, and Michael Miller, President of Strategy, Alliances & Marketing for SUSE. We will have one more keynote as well, but we have not confirmed it yet.
The conference page has a list of hotels that are recommended, so if you haven’t booked your hotel, take a look at the list.
The T-Shirt Design Contest ends on April 2 and during our next organizing meeting, we will announce the winner of the contest and start getting the T-Shirts printed for the conference. Thank you to all the people who have submitted a design. There is still two days left to submit a design.
We have several sponsors for this year’s conference and we are looking forward to seeing everyone there.
openSUSE will have HackWeek the week following the conference, but it will kick off on Friday, June 24 and continue into the next week, so if you feel like hanging around Nuremberg for HackWeek, we will have a place for you to Hack at the SUSE Headquarters from June 27 to July 1. Participate in one of the projects listed or make one on the website.
