openSUSE Leap 15 is going to be released on May 25, 2018! 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 one, go ahead and add it to list below. To add it to the map, please add your coordinates. If you're interested in hosting one but have questions, see the Launch Party HOWTO or email the marketing mailinglist
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!
