In the next installment of our Novell podcast series, Liz Padula, senior marketing manager at Novell, talks with Peter Bowen, architect for the SUSE Appliance Program, about Novell’s first annual “Disters” awards.
For those of you who don’t know Dister, he is the mascot for SUSE Studio, a free, web-based appliance building tool that is a key technology component of our SUSE Appliance Program. For appliances built in SUSE Studio and published in SUSE Gallery, we will be awarding $10,000 to the creators of the most inventive software appliances in two categories: “Community Use” and “Commercial Use”. Judges include Jim Zemlin, executive director of the Linux Foundation, Markus Rex, senior vice president and general manager of Open Platform Solutions at Novell, and other industry influencers.
“It’s a great way to show off what you can do and win some money at the same time,” says Bowen.
Anyone using SUSE Studio today is eligible to win, so start building or vote for your favorite appliance today!
