openSUSE 11.4 Release Party

We are planning a community release party this coming Thursday, March 17, 2011 to celebrate the 11.4 release.  We are planning on having some media and usb thumb drives for anyone that would like to install 11.4.

This time we are changing the location a little.  We are still having the party on Novell’s Provo campus, but in one of the executive briefing rooms building H which is the tall south most building.

Everyone is welcome.  If you are planning on coming please let us know by sending me an email sshaw ]at[ decriptor ]dot[ com.  We are hoping to have food and swag to give away.

Details:

March 17, 2011

6:30 to 8:00 pm

Executive Briefing Center, Building H

Novell Provo Campus

 

Here is the poster we threw together.  The artwork was provided by someone in the community and the poster was put together by my awesome wife.

A huge thanks to the community!

As many of you know and have generously donated, Bryen was robbed while traveling through Spain recently. We have now closed the pledge as we exceeded our goal. I have now transfered all of the funds to Bryen and he is planning on donating the rest to the GNOME A11y cause. Something that is close to him.

So, a huge thanks to all.

openSUSE 11.2 release party

Just a quick post letting everyone know that there is a release party here in Provo, Utah.

The Open Source Technology Center, building A on the Novell campus, has been good enough to host us again.  It will be this Thursday, November 12 from 6 to 9.

I do not have the replicated DVDs, but I will have some burned copies of the isos.

We don’t have a sponsor for pizza yet, but please RSVP anyways just in case.  Maybe we can have people throw some money in for pizza.

Pass the word on and See you all there!

UPDATE:

We will have pizza and drinks.  Please RSVP!!!

openSUSE Community Week!!!

Just around the corner is the openSUSE Community Week, May 11 – 17, 2009.  This will be a week of total awesomeness!  I highly recommend stopping by and learning as much as you can.  There will be plenty of really cool community people there to help you learn all kinds of things that you have been meaning to learn!

There will also be the chance to contribute back and maybe even bug that developer about your bug that has been bugging you or even find new bugs.

So, be sure to come out and hang out with some really awesome people for a week of awesomeness, because it will be awesome! 🙂
