I'll organize the LinuxTag Booth this year. LinuxTag, taking place during May
8-10, is different this year - they have partnered with Droidcon and
Re:Publica for their event, moved to a new location. Brand new!
I have proposed to do something different than a normal booth, too. I'm
involved with KDE, openSUSE and ownCloud so I thought the three could do
something cool this year
The plan is this: We get an area with a few rows of chairs and a projector.
Every hour, we host a 45 minute workshop there. Examples:
* testing Linux distro's with openQA
* writing an ownCloud App
* Building a basic QML Plasma App
The schedule will probably be: 10-12 and 13-17, so ~6 talks/day.
People get something for participating - nothing big, just a few nice
On the sides of this area, we have our booths: the traditional table with
material and somebody around to ask questions from.
All this should of course make 'our' area much more interesting and give
opportunities to talk to people.
LinuxTag liked the idea, so did the openSUSE board, KDE and ownCloud so they
all tasked me with making it happen. LinuxTag asked if Postfix Admin could
share our space as well - so Christian Boltz is in
Now I need you. I need volunteers who are willing to give a short workshop on
an openSUSE subject. Packaging in OBS is an obvious example but there are
other examples. Each volunteer gives one workshop per day, three times in
total thus. You'll also be at the booth a bit but we have >6 people for one
table so that won't be much either. Plenty of time to enjoy LT! And you get
even free access to the exhibition area of Re:Publica. Note that we can take
at most 2 volunteers (but if you give a talk you get in anyway).
Anybody interested? If needed, there is some travel budget available and if
you're really cool you can help make it even cooler: we have some budget from
the board to do something but I just don't have time to organize it. I can
fill you in with the details, just ask!
So, who's in?
