Ping: Again the question about LinuxTag 2014 (May 8-10 in Berlin): Is anybody is able to give a short 45 minute workshop once a day about openSUSE packaging or development? There is travel support, if needed... You get: * hugs and all the club mate you can drink; * free Linuxtag entree and food (eur 149 otherwise) * Access to Re:Publica exhibition area * Droidcon access on Saturday I really need at least one person willing to do this... Pretty please? Otherwise - no good looking Geeko at LinuxTag this year. We have Christian Boltz now but he will represent PostFix and thus we need a 2nd openSUSE-only person...

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 thingies.
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?
