openSUSE Conference 2011, Day 5 “Τhe Last Day”

Greeks woke up earlier in order to be in time at Zentrifuge. We ate breakfast and we prepared ourselves for taking the road to the conference. We were a bit tired but we wanted to live again and again the experience of participating at the openSUSE Conference. So we took the metro and went at Zentrifuge.

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”.

We had a lunch break, in order to refill our batteries and after we got split up in many presentations. Some of us attended the packaging sessions “What's a good package” by Peilicke, Sascha and “Packaging guidelines discussion” by Bleser Pascal, Peilicke Sascha and Rueckert Marcus and other attended the artwork sessions “Organizing our Artwork Repositories” and “openSUSE 12.1 Artwork” by Placeholder. Last presentations were some "Lighting Talks" from various people guided by Yunashko Bryen.









The conference ended with the “Wrap up Session” by Poortvliet Jos who thanked everyone for participating at openSUSE Conference. After that we took a “Group Photo” and a “Group Hug Photo”.





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.

You can find photos from the openSUSE Conference at our facebook group, and at Kostas Koudaras Picasa. We upload photos all day long !

After we ate, talked with people and rest ourselves we attended the conversation about “Playing with Geeko: Contribution can be fun” by Koudaras, Kostas and Gupta, Manu where they presented to the community why and how we can contribute at the project.



After attending all those interesting presentations it was time for an extraordinary one!

openSUSE Conference: Day 2, The Conference Begins

Awesome! The sun goes up in Nuremberg... The Greek team woke up early in the morning in order to get ready for the first day of the conference... We had a good breakfast and we started heading for the Zentrifuge in order to meet the other guyz and attend the Conference. On our road to the openSUSE Conference we met the Chinese community and we both head to the conference together.

When we arrived people were awesome. Everyone was there... The day's program was printed so we took a copy in order to see and decide which awesome presentations we will attend!



We all attended the presentation of Mr. ZYSK, GregoryIntroduction to Cross-Cultural Communication, Conflict and Collaboration”. After presenting his model of cross-cultural communication model and his ambitions, he made an awesome test... He made everyone in the room pick a mate that he hadn't worked with him at all or get to know and after he gave us two papers of different scenarios he made us conflict and find a common solution to solve the scenario!




It was a difficult choice on decide which presentation we will attend and everyone made his own choice. There were community based presentations, and many technical presentations. Everything went as programmed and after a day full of knowledge it came about 18:00 when we started a “Barbeque Party” !!! Kostas, wore his firefighter uniform in order to be ready to protect us from the flames while me and Stathis were helping baking the sausages. After that, a party started with rock music beers and geekos talking, laughing and having fun till late at night!

After two and a half hours we arrived at Zurich airport where we stayed for two hours waiting for the next flight to Nuremberg. The flight between Zurich and Nuremberg lasted half an hour an finally after 4 hour traveling we arrived at Nuremberg.


At Nuremberg, we went to the hotel we left our luggage and we went straight to Zentrifuge in order to meet the other geekos and help organizing and in general help at the openSUSE Conference. When we arrived we found people already working there... Bruno who was at Fosscomm was setting up the sound over the halls, other were creating pins with the names of the participants, other were preparing some special bags which include a poster, stickers, a magazine and many other things and other were setting up the presentation laptops. Stella and I helped with the bags, Kostas and Stathis helped with the pins were they excel,and by folding fliers. After that, Jos the community manager decided that we must decorate the halls so George and Stella went with him at IKEA and bought some pretty things for the halls.


After a long and difficult day at 19:00 we stopped working and started drinking beers :) We had a small “Pizza Party” !!! Fifteen pizzas arrived at Zentrifuge for the geekos there! Old Toad the openSUSE beer helped geekos retrieve their strength for the next day! We ate, talked about several things laughed a lot and drunk many beers!
