The openSUSE Conference begins Friday, May 26, at 10 a.m. and will finish on Sunday, May 28. 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.

Pre-Conference Party will be on Thursday (May 25) 7 PM at Kater Murr. You'll find Kater Murr at Johannesgasse 14 in walking distance from main station.
