Live from the openSUSE Conference in Nürnberg

Yes, i’m here in Nürnberg. The Conference is very interesting. Yesterday i’ve given an Talk „Getting to know the openSUSE Weekly News.“ After my Talk i had visited Joe Brockmeiers „openSUSE Ambassador Program“, Holger Sickenbergs „Testing of the openSUSE Distribution and Will Stephensons „Future of openSUSE KDE“. This day was an Motivation for me, to be a part of the Testing Team. Through an Emulator i can run the Milestones without installing. I think, that  i can do it. I’m writing Bugreports.

Today i’ve visited Alexandra Leisses Talk „Community and Contributions“, then Scott Reves and Takashi Iwais Talk „Alsa and Pulseaudio on openSuSE“, then Build your own Linux Distribution during Lunch Break“ and Jan Simon Mollers Talk „openSUSE and ARM „GSoC and beyond“. This day, and the Discussion with the other Mates, motivated me to create an new Repository in OBS called „Medical“. Inside this i put Packages with Medical Relationships. If i have some Packages inside that, i plan to make an SUSE Studio Imahe for Medical Doctors or Clinical Professional Enviroment.

Tomorrow i give an second Talk called „Softwareprograms under Linux and Presenting important Software“. This Talk i give in the German Language. Maybe i can Blog in the next Days too. But if you are not sure, and if you have some Time at Saturday or Sunday, you can meet us in Nürnberg.

BtW. Today we have interviewed Frank Karlitschek for RadioTux.
