The openSUSE Conference begins June 22 at 10 a.m. and will finish on June 26 at 2 p.m. with the exception of the Nuremberg Docker Meetup that is scheduled to end at 3 p.m. The openSUSE Conference is the annual openSUSE community event that brings people from around the world together to meet and collaborate. The organized talks, workshops, and BoF sessions provide a framework around more casual meet ups and hack sessions. A party here and there provides the time to relax and have fun, making connections on a more personal level.
