The openSUSE Community Week[1] is going strong! The fun kicks up a notch
Wednesday with sessions with the openSUSE Board and a workshop with the
openSUSE Weekly News team, in addition to sessions with the GNOME and KDE
teams, testing and QA, and much more.

Our community week is a chance to get people from around the world together at
the same time to focus on specific topics, and to transfer knowledge about
openSUSE to help grow our teams. The idea is to cover topics to improve our
community by broadening our knowledge, and to enable new contributors to
openSUSE and open source.

openSUSE Community Week runs from through May 17. openSUSE Community Week is a
chance to get people from around the world together at the same time to focus
