Presented by:

Christian Boltz is a long-term openSUSE contributor, starting with lots of bugreports in the time when it was still named 'SUSE Linux". Nowadays, he maintains the AppArmor and PostfixAdmin packages, including lots of upstream contributions to those projects. He is also one of the founders of the openSUSE Heroes.

No video of the event yet, sorry! Meanwhile...

If there is something we like at openSUSE that is talks and beer and wine, and this time we want to combine them. We are going to to have a session with lightning talks, short talks of 5 minutes maximum each, where there is only one rule: The speaker muss always hold a beer or a glass of wine while giving the presentation.

Everybody can submit a proposal. It doesn't matter if you are already an experienced openSUSE contributor or if you are just starting. We want to hear everybody! You just need an interesting and original topic related to open source or openSUSE to join the fun at the openSUSE conference. And if you don't drink alcohol, don't worry, we'll also provide beer-free beer (water ;-)
