Join the openSUSE Project this weekend, Saturday August 23, and Sunday
August 24, at third annual FrOSCon [http://www.froscon.org]. FrOSCon
is a two day conference on Free Software and Open Source, taking place
at the Fachhochschule Bonn-Rhein-Sieg in Sankt Augustin near the
cities of Bonn and Cologne.

Come to the openSUSE booth to meet other openSUSE community members,
and get your own copy of the openSUSE 11.0 DVD if you don't have one
already! You can also catch Marko Jung's talk on his concept of a
trust system for the openSUSE Build Service on Sunday, at 11:15 a.m.
in lecture room HS5.

In addition to the openSUSE-related activities, the whole conference
program features many highlights. On Saturday, Andrew S. Tanenbaum
will give a keynote on "Minix 3 - A Reliable and Secure Operating
System", held at 12:45 in HS1 Tanenbaum is a professor of computer
science at the Vrije Universiteit, Amsterdam. He became famous as
developer of the system Minix. In 1992 he caused a sensation by
criticizing Linux as an obsolete operating system.

On the second day of the conference, PHP inventor Rasmus Lerdorf will
give his keynote titled "Simple is hard." Lerdorf will talk about the
trouble of finding a simple solution and the increasing affinity to
comlexity which causes problems in performance, scalability, and
security.

If you'd like to help with the openSUSE booth at FrOSCon, we're still
looking for additional volunteers. Please contact Marko Jung
