There were many community based presentations and many technical presentations about Google summer of code projects and in general technologies that openSUSE uses and updates. Our day started by attending the conversation about “Do we need an ambassador mentoring program?” by Koudaras, Kostas where we talked about ambassadors and how we can improve the program in all ways. Many people from Novel attended the presentation and integrate with ideas in order to help improve the program. After that, we attended “Connect - a social networking platform for the openSUSE Community” by Mr. Vogelsang, Hendrik and Rusnak, Pavol who presented us this new awesome community tool, how it works and how we can improve it.
After a small coffee break, we attended the “openSUSE project meeting”. There we talked about the elections and the board and about in general on “how to improve the project”.
But, the last day of the openSUSE Conference wasn't over. After leaving Zentrifuge we went at a nearby city where there is the beer factory that made us the “Old Toad” openSUSE beer! We were guided in the factory rooms and saw how beer is made. After that, we ate local food and drunk local beer at the local restaurant where we stayed there till late at night discussing, drinking beer and having fun!
openSUSE Conference was a great experience for everyone. We met new people, we met the global openSUSE community, we learnt many things from them and how they work and the most important is that we worked with them and we will collaborate in the future.
