openSUSE conference 2014 (oSC14) in Dubrovnik is over and there are new memories to keep. At times, being the one to push the organization on the road to oSC14 was rough and it took a lot of energy to achieve what was done. But after all that happened, I can say I am left with only positive feelings of a great achievement. Of course, I feel relieved that it is over and that everything that we planned went smoothly. Hanging out for five days with the awesome openSUSE community and awesome lectures made all the casual organization hiccups, stress and problems worth it. Actually, I didn’t get to see most of the lectures because organizing took all of my time, so watching the recordings is one of the first things on my checklist. Also, on-site feedback from other traveling Geekos has been very positive which gives me at least some reason to believe that my impression of the conference is not too subjective.
Sadly, oSC14 is over and the feeling of achievement is only surpassed by the feeling of eagerly awaiting what Hans prepares for us at oSC15 in The Hague. Hopefully, I will also be able to help in some way.
In the end, to all the unsung heroes – everyone who helped make the conference happen – volunteers, University of Dubrovnik, lecturers, core team, video team, sponsors… thank you so much and continue having a lot of fun!
