We need to get people to register and book for the openSUSE conference
soon as possible. What better way than to tease them with some juicy and
interesting sessions they would be able to enjoy?

Our paper committee has made some executive decisions and the first
sessions are decided upon. Awesome, as that means we can start to
advertise them!

The sessions include keynote speakers opening every day (Georg Greve on
Friday, Michael Miller on Saturday and yours truly on Sunday) and about
25-30 confirmed sessions.

That should give us plenty to write about, heck, we can probably do a
number of articles if we want. But that requires some writing help!

I would propose to do 4 articles. One about the keynote speakers and
one in each of the three main areas of talks: Community& Project; Geeko
Tech and openWorld.

I will write the first of the three main areas, show at least one way of
doing it. Who's up for picking a 2nd and who does a 3rd? And who would
like to talk to our (more or less) esteemed keynote speakers and find
out what they will talk about?


I would love to participate! I am willing to write about the other two
subjects but if more contributors would like to pick a subject, please
go ahead and I will just do one.

1) Community & Project (Jos)
I will try to make a draft asap so you have some idea on how to do it.

2) Geeko Tech (Andy)
3) Open World (Andy)

The conference team will have to give you access to the events here:

Henne, you are probably in charge of this?!?

Jos, can you expand on the articles 2 and 3?

Let me make something so you have an idea of how to do it. Alternatively,
look at under program - Henne featured a few talks
there, too. We need to make people sign up for oSC and get their asses

So we should pick a number of talks with a potentially wide appeal and
feature them in these articles. Geeko Tech has for example the OBS Packaging
or Maintenance workshops by Henne and a talk about openQA & a workshop about
creating openQA tests. Open World has a talk for Ruby on Rails developers, a
talk about Btrfs, LVM and Snapper, a talk about using Puppet and so on.
These can all use some attention :D


Thank you
