Hello openSUSE marketing people I am sending an email to opensuse-project about the openSUSE mini-summit to be held in conjunction with Linux Fest Northwest. That message is below.
This is a marketing opportunity for openSUSE. LFNW is well-known and highly regarded. It's unlike any other tech conference, although I have heard that it's similar to Chemnitzer Linux-Tage. There are advantages to both events for publicity. I'm working with Doug DeMaio and James Mason on this. James and I both live in Bellingham, Washington where LNFW is held. We've both been involved in organizing the Fest. James has a substantial role this year. I am coordinating the mini-summit. openSUSE will have an expo space and is a Gold Sponsor. We have prominent exposure. So there may be some promotional and marketing advantages associated with the mini-summit. Ideas? What would you like to see happen at the mini-summit? How do we get the word out to the openSUSE community? Carl Symons ------------ Hello openSUSE community You are invited to an openSUSE mini-summit on April 29, 2018 in Bellingham, Washington, USA. The mini-summit will be held in conjunction with LinuxFest Northwest , the original grassroots FOSSfest, now in its 19th year. LFNW is free to participate, thanks to generous sponsors and a long-time relationship with Bellingham Technical College. It is low-key and family-inclusive. LFNW will be packed with presentations and exhibits on the latest FOSS technologies. It will feature well-known contributors and projects in a casual environment. Most of the time, the openSUSE Community works and interacts on-line by email, chat, forums and mailing lists. The openSUSE mini-summit is a way to get together in person in order to meet people, ask and answer questions, and build strong social connections. It is a community gathering to discuss ideas and work on projects that benefit openSUSE: its users, its contributors, and its standing as a premier Linux distribution. The openSUSE mini-summit@LFNW is listed at events.opensuse.org (oSMS). But there's no content yet. The organizers have some ideas; we want yours. What are your suggestions for the openSUSE mini-summit?
