We are offered a full page ad in the upcoming Linux Magazin if we can
send it before Friday.

Who is up for giving it a try? The end result doesn't have to have the
text that I put in, per-se, just make sure there's an explanation of
the event ;-)

We might or might not get many visitors due to this, I have no idea-
probably not many as it is late (the magazines will go out on July 4
so). But every bit helps :D

Ping me if you've got something. I will send what I have on Thursday
night. I created a 'fall-back' in case we don't have time to come up
with something better:

Source in github. Feel free to use it as a base for improvement.


I offer myself for editing and if you assign a certain subject. Maybe
conference people could write about their impressions on what are the
most important things happening at the conference and then we can cite
them as we write a longer article.

Does anyone know how many words the article is to be?

Sorry for the mix-up. We do have an article to write, but that is for

This is an advertisement, see the link I gave - a one-page add to get
ppl to come to oSC.

Of course, we COULD do it in the form of an article, that's certainly
not a bad idea - but we'd have to hurry up a bit :D

I have thought only a little about an angle for the article for, it would have to be interesting for the general readers

Perhaps it could be about the maturing of the openSUSE community. Put in
some bits about the history of openSUSE Conferences (see my blog - I
plan on publishing it within 1 hour and it'll have my take on that
history) and get quotes from the team on the why and how of this event.


Andy (anditosan)

Well Jos, I do like what's shown on the example from susepaste. I would
like to take that further and really work on colors and make an
impression. Here is a sample of what I am thinking of.

Fuck me! pardon my French, but that is just frickin' awesome! I have
attached the specs it has to fit in. Tell me what you want from me and I
will give it :D

I want to take our brand further rather than the conference itself. The
conference is, in my view, only incidental. It happens when people like
openSUSE. openSUSE is the main event at any of our gatherings. That is
why I played this design.

Notice how the bottom has an area to add text. This text can have a
simple read of what the conference is and why people should go. Dates
and location can also be added adhering to this design.

You can perhaps take the text from what I made - it is in github, as I said.
Feel free to fix the graphics I did by removing them and putting yours
instead :D

I hope you like it and it makes a SPLASH!

WOW, it did in my head! Really, this just ROCKS. KICK ASS!

/me is genuinely excited
