The openSUSE Board, the organization team, and our hosts will welcome Geekos from around the world to open oSC14.

Following the tradition of previous openSUSE Conferences we will once again have a face to face project meeting. It is always fun to have the meeting at the conference as being able to just speak instead of typing things into IRC makes things even more immediate. Agenda items should be posted to the project meeting wiki and we will once again try to have a live IRC feed going to allow those ... more

Optimizing Linux Servers

presented by DavorG

Linux Server is optimized for average workloads. With most servers you can gain much by optimizing performance and make some tweaking.

Packagers: make your life easier with magic tools

presented by Vincent Untz

One of the main area of contributions to openSUSE is the packages, and we have a great amount of amazing packagers. Still, working on the packages can be a painful task when it becomes repetitive. Good news! It turns out that there are tools to help you for this, and for some reason, they're not as used as they should be, which means that some of us are still suffering more pain than they need ... more

Cloudy weather on openSUSE? Here comes OpenStack!

presented by Vincent Untz

Nowadays, everything is cloud and cloud is everything. It's all magic, it's all trendy, it's all buzzwords. But it's still unclear to many what this all is. In this talk, we will talk about OpenStack, the cloud computing platform that is getting the most traction in the free software world. But we will also talk about what we do for it in openSUSE, because there's some cool stuff happening there!

Kernel space SMP on ARM
Why x86 is better than ARM

presented by Oliver Neukum

Most kernel code and drivers in particular are written for multiple architectures. They need to respect an abstract memory model to run on all architectures. x86 is the most relaxed of the supported architectures. You can get away with violations of that model that cause subtle bugs on other architectures. Yet x86 is the architecture most people test on. This talk is about which rules apply to ... more

How to write openQA tests
Write tests to contribute openSUSE
