Get-involved workshops at the KDE/ownCloud/openSUSE booth at LinuxTag

Tomorrow, 9:45, LinuxTag and DroidCon open the doors in Berlin. The even presents a staggering number of sessions (see LinuxTag on Thursday alone featuring 57 talks). This is in part due to the addition of evening sessions, which are open for the public (no ticket needed). My own talk about the relevance of the Linux Desktop is one of these evening sessions. This is in parallel with LinuxNacht so we'll have to see how many people will choose talks over beer...

Workshops

At the combined openSUSE/ownCloud/KDE booth I've organized short workshops, given by contributors to these projects, designed to help you get involved with these (and other!) Free Software projects. There is only room for about 10-12 people per workshop so you will get some real attention from the developer doing the workshop. It also means you should make sure to be there on time to secure a spot!

We try to give the workshops tree times so if one is full, you can come back the next day (due to availability of people this didn't work for all workshops).
