Proposed Target statement:
"The openSUSE Summit aims to bring together the community in the Americas region to colaborate, meet new people, and provide an open and inviting atmosphere for those interested in open source."
Program Committee needs to determine the target audience and the tracks to include in the program. Some thoughts:
- a great opportunity to fly in folks from Central America, Mexico and Canada, not just focused on US.
- appeal for new contributors who are in florida to join just for this event
- more of the uber-techs are in EU than in US
- who would a marketing event speak to? susecon attendees staying on? press? suse fans who are not contributors?
- The openSUSE Community track provides information and discussion around the openSUSE community. Topics include but are not limited to
- * Project governance and organization
- * How can we improve and evolve as a growing community
- * What is the task of an Ambassador and how to get involved
- The openSUSE Tech track provides information, discussion, and hands on experience with the technology that makes openSUSE tick. Topics in this track include, but are not limited to
- * The openSUSE Factory development model
- * Packaging hands on
- * Wiki editing help
- * What is OBS and how do I use it
- * Tools of the trade of the Artwork team
- The open World track provides a platform to present your project, or listen to the interesting things our sponsors want to share. Topics in this track may cover Demos and HowTos, FOSS project introduction, or other interesting topics from areas such as the "Maker movement".
Evening Events Notes

- Trip to Beach
