The openSUSE Project is pleased to announce its second confirmed keynote for
the first-ever openSUSE Conference[1]. Our closing keynote will be delivered
by Gianugo Rabellino, Chief Executive Officer of Sourcesense[2] and member
of the Apache Software Foundation (ASF). Rabellino serves as Vice President of
the Apache XML Project Management Committee, is a committer on several ASF
projects including Cocoon, Xindice, and Jackrabbit, as well as mentor of a
number of projects currently in development at the ASF Incubator.

Rabellino's keynote, "Open Development in the trenches: a decade at the Apache
Software Foundation" will provide a "look behind the scenes" at the Apache
Software Foundation's 10 years of open source leadership.

The opening keynote will be given by Leslie Hawthorn of Google. Leslie is a
program manager for Google’s Open Source Programs Office, and community
manager for the Google Summer of Code. The topic of the keynote is "Mentoring
for Fun and Profit," and the full description can be found on the openSUSE
Conference Web site.

The openSUSE Conference is an opportunity for openSUSE contributors to attend
talks, workshops, Birds of a Feather sessions, and collaborate together face
to face. The conference will be held from September 17 through September 20 in
Nürnberg, Germany. Register today[3] to reserve your spot!

The conference will have two daily tracks of pre-planned talks, plus "BarCamp"
style tracks for attendees to plan and provide their own content. Scheduled
talks include:

* openSUSE Build Service and Cross-Platform Packaging: Peter Linnell

* Git in the openSUSE Build Service: Andreas Gruenbacher

* openSUSE & Moblin: Michael Meeks


The openSUSE Conference will also have a major "unconference" component. We'll
have plenty of time for contributors to discuss and work on topics they're
interested in face to face.
