Code of Conduct edit

It is important for the openSUSE Conference Team to create an environment where everyone feels accepted and welcome. We expect all our visitors to behave according to our Code of Conduct and will take decisive action against any inappropriate behavior.

Sponsors edit

The openSUSE Conference would not be possible without our sponsors.

The openSUSE community is a global community contributing to the openSUSE project in an effort to promote the use of openSUSE, Linux, and FOSS worldwide. Development in all areas relies on voluntary contributions. Friendly interaction and open collaboration is encouraged in an environment of cooperation, across cultural backgrounds and different levels of expertise, where innovation flourishes and the boundaries of FOSS are expanded.

The openSUSE conference is the annual openSUSE community event that brings people from around the world together to meet and collaborate. The organized talks, workshops, and BoF sessions provide a framework around more casual meet ups and hack sessions. A party here and there provides the time to relax and have fun, making connections on a more personal level.

The openSUSE conference 2016 takes place at the Z Bau in Nürnberg, Germany, June 22-26.

Great reasons to sponsor the openSUSE Conference

The event is organized by volunteers, who dedicate their time and effort to create one of the outstanding FOSS events of 2016, promoting collaboration and presenting new technologies. All sponsors funds are used for the conference.

As a sponsor you enable the content to be free of charge for everyone.

Enable those contributors with financial constraints to attend the event through openSUSE Travel Support Program (https://en.opensuse.org/openSUSE:Travel_Support_Program)

Gain visibility to people involved and interested in information technology and FOSS.

Financial support for the openSUSE conference from sponsors is invaluable and crucial for the success of the event. While the countless hours extended by volunteers to orchestrate the event provide the atmosphere and framework for the conference, commercial sponsorship provides the necessary financial backing. The financial support by our sponsors allows us to allocate funds for the venue, create marketing material, secure keynote speakers, and assist those that contribute to openSUSE but with some financial constraints to attend the conference.

That aside, sponsors can participate in the Conference by having a booth, and help organize social events to increase both the conference atmosphere and visibility, as well as their own.
