Subject: The openSUSE Board invites the openSUSE community to begin planning an openSUSE
event in North America.
Earlier today, SUSE delivered the exciting announcement of SUSECon, a SUSE annual
conference, to be held in Orlando on September 18-21, 2012. Additionally SUSE has
reserved the conference venue through September 23rd and is offering the site to the
openSUSE community for a multi-day openSUSE community planned event.
A North America openSUSE event would not replace the openSUSE conference! The annual
openSUSE conference continues to draw an increasing number of attendees, but many from
North and South America have been unable to make the trip to Europe and have voiced the
desire for an event a bit closer to home. SUSE, upon hearing of interest from several USA
community members, was able to extend the availability of the September venue to the
openSUSE community to develop and plan an event in North America. Creating an openSUSE
event, co-located with SUSECon, creates an exciting opportunity to engage and further
build the growing openSUSE community in the Americas.
Volunteers from the openSUSE community are needed to plan, organize and staff the event.
If you can help out in September, please attend the next openSUSE Project meeting on
2012 is an exciting year for openSUSE.
Have a lot of fun!
