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!!!

Open Source Technology Center Conference 07

The OSTC is putting on a conference next week to help out software engineers and developers “seeking new job opportunities, considering new ventures, and open for new ideas in IT.”  A big thanks to Shauna for putting this together.  There are going to be several great presenters at this event.  I was going to name some of the, but figured it would be easier to send you over to the website Home Runs in IT to check out the agenda.

The event is on December 6th, so hurry up and signing on the website. This will also be a great networking event.  So for a low $35, or free for user groups, ex/Novell employees, and local schools this is a great deal!  If you below to one of these groups,

please contact me at sshaw at decriptor dot com

To register, click on the Home Runs in IT link above.

Linux Fall Release Install Party

I’m at the Linux Distro Release party right now and testing out the new ubuntu 7.10. Don’t worry fellow opensuse users, just because Novell laid me off doesn’t mean I’m going to move to ubuntu. So far we’ve had a great turn out and we’re still installing. We have had everything from opensuse to ubuntu to fedora to mac osx 10.5 to openbsd. That’s what we have had people bring.

So with my attempt to install ubuntu 7.10 on my mac book pro I ended up killing my boot information. For some reason refit didn’t work right (or more likely I didn’t know what I was doing) and now I need to go back and try and fix that. Back to the install fest. Hopefully pictures to follow.

A thanks to Herlo for helping put this together and Open Source Technology Center @ Novell for providing space.

Post opensuse launch party

Well, the party is over and hope that everyone enjoyed it. There are several that walked away with some cool swag. If I remember right, there were a few blankets, a backpack, stuffed geckos, 5 ipod nanos, a watch, and a digital camera. So a special thanks to Novell for providing the swag, pizza, and food. Also the OSTC (Open Source Technology Center) was nice to let us use their building.

Here are some photos too:
