openSUSE Packed Me to Taipei

It begins when I read about the news release of openSUSE Leap 42.1 RC1, I began to find out more deeply about Leap. I thought, Leap is a big change in the history of openSUSE distribution release and I enthusiastic to know about it. As the system administration consultant, earlier I only use and recommend Debian, Ubuntu LTS and CentOS to corporate customers. However today, I am going to always advise them to use openSUSE Leap as the main operating system. My opinion comes as openSUSE Leap distribution packaging is the best for the company. Based on this, I was immediately installed it on my laptop. Effortlessly, I discovered openSUSE Indonesian Community Facebook group. I joined and socialize with other openSUSE users.

The next morning I received an email from the committee of openSUSE.Asia Summit 2015 just to find out that the proposed proposal I wrote about the Building IaaS Cloud with openSUSE and OpenStack has been approved. I also had the opportunity to apply for financial support for trip from openSUSE.

I rushed apply for visa to be able to visitcountry where the openSUSE.Summit 2015 take place. Alhamdulillah, the visa issuing process are convenient and straightforward. To be able to attend the event there, I hunt online airplane tickets and lowest price-cozy inn, and yes I got it!
I went to Taipei together with two other presenters from Indonesia, Estu and Edwin. The first thing I did in Taipei, we make time to visit SUSE Labs / Novell Taiwan office. It was a great time to knowing and welcome by friends form SUSE Labs.

At Saturday morning, the conference is warmly opened.

Trip to openSUSE.Asia Summit 2015 is truly a pleasant experience. It's not only enlighten but also encourage myself to keep use and contribute to openSUSE. I wish that the upcoming openSUSE.Asia Summit will be held in Indonesia. Thank you openSUSE.Asia Summit 2015. Thank you Taipei, Taiwan . Thank you openSUSE.
