openSUSE Conference 2019 @Nuremberg

Participating openSUSE Conference is one of my dream. I always cannot find a time to do it until I made my mind to leave all other stuff. Thank my company for sponsoring my flight.

Munich Central Station

I have visited Munich for many times. It is familiar place but the memory is so far and mixed with smiles and tears. Feel a bit sad.

The conference started at 10am. When I arrived Nuremburg by train, it already afternoon.

Here we are
Like these lovely houses

The city is not big. Streets are wide, straight and clean, so I can easily find my way. I think when I retired, I will look for a similar place for the rest of my life.

Tech report

It is a three day event. Everyday here are tech talks, mostly about containers, Kubernetes. I am not interested in though… There are also some tough topic, like the plan of openSUSE Foundation (SUSE doesn’t seem liking the idea…).

Funny things:

  1. openSUSE and Fedora sponsor each other. Fedora developers made a GitLab replacement and even made a demo for openSUSE.
  2. Kernel of Leap and SLE is old. They need to backport new kernel patches. And the amount is tens of thousands. Usually you apply patches in a sequence. But they find a way to parallel apply patches in several seconds.
  3. A few openSUSE’s servers run Fedora and Debian.

Summer feeling!
The long table meeting

It is interesting that someone recognized I made the opi tool. Also met a few friends from Japan. We talked online about font packaging. It is a unique experience to meet people in offline events. Taiwan friends stayed in the same hotel as me. So we get more chance to talk.

The most exciting part is to find QR code hidden in the square. Each gives you a link to a question. And you need 8/10 point to get a Gecko.

Catch a Geeko

Get to know many people. Drink non-alcohol beer. Exchange coins and bank notes.
