openSUSE Leap 15.4 was released! There is no better way to enjoy the new release than with your fellow openSUSE peers! Launch parties are events around the release of a new openSUSE version. What kind of event is up to the organizers but it's usually an event to spread the word about the new version, share knowledge with each other and get people to know openSUSE. Most of all is of course about having a lot of fun...
If you are hosting an event for a launch party of the next release, go ahead and add it to list below. If you're interested in hosting one but have questions, see the Launch Party HOWTO.
You can find posters on this page and other materials via the navigation bar on top.
If you want to give a presentation, find some materials on the Presentations page.
Picking a date
Launch parties aren't limited to the release date. It's fine to organize a party 3 or 4 weeks after the release, when people have had a chance to test it out!
