Bali, Indonesia, Selected for openSUSE.Asia Summit 2019

March 6th, 2019 by

For the second time, Indonesia was chosen to host the openSUSE.Asia Summit 2019 event. A similar event was held in Yogyakarta, Indonesia, in 2016 and was attended by hundreds of local openSUSE lover as well as from other Asian countries. This year we are challenged to repeat the successful story of the openSUSE.Asia Summit on one of the most exotic islands in Indonesia, Bali.

openSUSE.Asia Summit is an event awaited by fans of openSUSE in Indonesia in particular, and activists of Free/Libre Open Source Software (FLOSS) in general. In this activity, experts, contributors, end users, and technology enthusiasts gather to share experiences about the development of openSUSE and other things related to FLOSS and have a lot of fun.

The island of Bali was chosen as the venue for the openSUSE.Asia Summit after being proposed by the Indonesian community during openSUSE.Asia Summit 2018 in Taipei, Taiwan. After going through a long discussion, the Asian committee chose Bali as the host of openSUSE.Asia Summit 2019. openSUSE.Asia Summit 2019 will be from October 5 to October 6, 2019, at Udayana University, Bali.

Goals to be achieved in the openSUSE.Asia Summit 2019 in Bali include:

  • To promote openSUSE in the Asian region.
  • To provide an alternative to the wider community that FLOSS can be a powerful tool for doing their daily job.
  • To attract new contributors for openSUSE from Indonesia and other Asian countries.
  • To provide a forum for sharing user and developer experiences because usually such discussions only occur online.

In the end, we are proud to present Bali Island to become one of the historical places for the openSUSE.Asia Summit :”)

Pre-announcement

openSUSE.Asia Summit 2019 will immediately open a call for paper for prospective speakers. In addition, we will also open a logo competition for the openSUSE.Asia Summit 2019. Surely this will be an opportunity for designers in Asia to compete with each other to show their abilities and contribute to this activity. We will inform you of more details about the above information in the near future through news.opensuse.org.

See you in Bali and have fun!

Fun, fun, fun at OSC11

August 22nd, 2011 by

The Zentrifuge, our conference location this year, is build in an old factory that was used for the production of washing machines (centrifuge, get it?). The bridging between technology and art is an important concern for them and thus our conference, as a technology conference, tries to cross that bridge too. Of course we also follow our motto Have a lot of fun… in this endeavor and throw a little party into the mix as well. So here is our blend of social events at OSC11.
