A nice and inspiring excursion to the Netherlands – openSUSE conference 2015 and Kolab Summit

It seems that everytime I write a blog post it has something to do with a free software / Linux conference. And, to me this seems fine. And this introduction will not have a twist to it. Again, the topic is openSUSE conference, that was this year organized in parallel to the Kolab Summit.

This year, the awesome guys from the Netherlands, Hans De Raad and Robin Edgar have gone out and about to organize a great event and to make sure everyone enjoys their stay in The Hague.

Aside from the immensely awesome talks at the conference, that are of course recorded and available at bambuser.com or youtube.com that got me inspired, excited about new announcements from the openSUSE project and about Roundcube Next which is an awesome crowdfunding campaign for the project, supported also by Kolab Systems, which you should support by the way. I also learned a lot. But as always, openSUSE people don’t forget that you should always have a lot of fun. So expectedly, the SUSE guys brough a lot of openSUSE beer from Germany, and the afternoons were filled with sounds of laughter, joy and lively conversation.🙂

Again, many of the participants were there because of the openSUSE Travel Support program for contributors, and that was also the main reason I was able to go to oSC15. Seriously, that is some great stuff and if you haven’t already, you should definitely contribute to openSUSE and go hang out with us next year, when the openSUSE project will be celebrating its 10th birthday at the conference that will bring the lizard back home to Germany, Nuremberg. I’m really looking forward to it, and again.. thanks to everyone who contributed to this year’s event.
