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.
