After my disasterous attempt to travel out to Nurenberg on Sunday – I managed to get my passport stolen at security of all places 🙁 (I thought I had lost it, but nothing found yet). I managed to travel out first thing on Monday.
The timing was perfect, I managed to get to the SUSE offices in NUE just in time to drop my bags and meet up with Andreas for a little tour/familiarisation of the site. This was great because we (openSUSE invited about 10 community members to NUE) got to see a load of the great folks that work on the project and see how they do it (including the ever elusive Beineri:
We then had a pleasant brunch, and afterwards sat down to start hacking on our respective projects.
So what is one doing for HackWeek? Well it isnt exactly hacking (well not initially although I may have to so I can get the end product out); I’m hoping to do some videos of HackWeek, both documentary style(ish) and some interviews. Why do I say “hoping”? Well I’ve hardly filmed anything 🙁 I have been way too busy discussing and speaking about openSUSE with people.
Day 1 was very much a ChatWeek moment rather than HackWeek 🙂 The chatting took place all around the offices, and even in Meeting Rooms where we discussed many aspects of the project. I continued chatting with fellow openSUSE peeps over dinner and well into the night:
It isn’t all chatting though, some people did manage to get some coding done albeit in between chats 🙂 By the way Andreas isn’t laughing at the code quality and Benji isn’t playing an advanced level of nethack – honest!
I’m certainly hoping to be able to get some video recorded on Day 2, but these people at SUSE are just so damned social that it’s really hard!! 😀
