Why YOU should be there!
As one of the largest Linux distributions, openSUSE has close relationships with projects like GNOME and KDE, the Linux Kernel developers, SAMBA, ownCloud, Apache and many others. It is our job to bring their technologies to users around the globe. So at the Summit you'll find talks about the cutting edge developments in these projects as well as packaging and distribution infrastructure, ARM and mobile devices, rolling releases and much more.
openSUSE lives up to its name. We're a very open community! We warmly welcome contributors not only from projects that offer software that is part of the openSUSE distribution, but also contributors to other distributions like Fedora and Ubuntu. We expect our Summit to be a place where we can all contribute and collaborate on the latest Linux distribution technologies. There will be contributors not just from North America but also Central- and South America. And we don't have committees and steering boards making decisions and letting you contribute - YOU set the direction in openSUSE. This is how you do it!
The Summit is about people. Interesting people from all around the globe, getting together to talk, discuss technology, decide on the future of Free Software - and have a lot of fun. We'll ensure a good balance between work and play with parties and there is even talk of a Cookout Faceoff!
