1 Bootstrapping Awesome!
3 Gentoo Miniconf [1], openSUSE Conference [2], LinuxDays [3], SUSE Labs: All of
4 those will take place in the Czech Technical University [4] in the beautiful
5 city of Prague, 20-21 October (the openSUSE conference will have two extra
6 days, 20-23 October). But I’m sure you already know that info, and you are
7 planning to book tickets and accommodation soon, so read on!
9 Accommodation!
11 Hotel Krystal was selected as the conference hotel. It’s situated near the
12 conference venue, it can accommodate many people, and it’s easy to find. All
13 the information you need is in linuxdays accommodation [5] page. In there you
14 will find the prices, reservation instructions, the map of the area and public
15 transportation instructions.
17 Registration!
19 You can and you should register for attending LinuxDays and other conferences.
20 Although registration is optional, it will help us estimate number of people
21 coming and will get you some benefits as well. There is only one registration
22 for all conferences and you can register for free but there are also other
23 registration options that will let you support conferences financially.
24 Register NOW! [6]
26 Call for Papers
28 Just a reminder that Call for Papers for the Gentoo Miniconf is still open!
29 I’d like to remind you that the organizing committee would prefer to see more
30 workshops than talks, where the crowd can also participate along with the
31 speaker. The workshop may require some preparation from the people in order to
32 participate, which is something that I can promote, in order to make sure that
33 every participant will be ready. Random ideas:
34 * Ebuild development / bug triangling: Compile a list of tasks, and start
35 solving them with the people (in specific areas, eg KDE, Python, Ruby, Prefix)
36 * Present your cool Gentoo based project/application (I know there are plenty
37 of users working on awesome stuff out there)
38 * Development/bugfixing on a portage tool
39 * Development/bugfixing on a Gentoo webapp
40 All your ideas are welcome of course. If you are in doubt about the topic,
41 feel free to contact me and I’ll help you with my ideas to make your proposal
42 sound cool. Submit your proposal NOW! [7]
