Last week, the 2nd annual openSUSE conference was held in Nuremberg, Germany. This year the event saw an increase in attendance, up 30 percent over the previous year, with nearly 300 developers, Linux lovers and openSUSE supporters turning out for four days of discussion and “collaboration across borders.”
In fact, the response from attendees was overwhelming, see just a few comments here and here. And, for a taste of all the excitement, development and progress happening with this community, here are some of the highlights from the conference:
- Project Bretzen, a new project designed to increase the ease of use of openSUSE, was announced
- openSUSE and Intel discussed the work they are doing on the integration of AppStore technology in the whole stack
- Attendees were introduced to Smeegol
- The educational track was well attended and identified many opportunities
- And, this year's conference hosted the first LibreOffice conference track lead by Michael Meeks
We're already excited for next year! So, stay tuned for updates on dates and locations for 2011.
