Using a Raspberry PI (openSuse) and a food grade temperature probe and wifi sensor, I want to create a temperature monitor for my Kamadao Joe Smoker. The idea is to enable a series of email notifications as the smoker and contents reach their "done" temperature.

Learn about developing a YaST plugin by creating a plugin to manage SSH Tunnels. Creating SSH port tunnels along with corresponding iptables rules is a useful technique for being able to access virtual machines on a remote host that only visible on a private network. Managing and maintaining these connections via scripts and tmux sesssions is less desirable than doing it through a nice UI like YaST.
Note that the CLI tool https://www.npmjs.com/package/ssh-tunnel-manager has some nice ideas for managing groups and profiles that may be useful.
I recently got Jeedom working on SLES for Raspberry Pi. However, I'ld love to play more with it like controlling my window shutters. This hackweek could also be an occasion to get as much as possible of the jeedom plugins to work on SLES and openSUSE.
Washington state is a leader in Alternative Learning Experiences, public schools that teach in unique ways. In order to manage the requirements imposed by the State office of public education, ALEs must use some form of a Student Information System (SIS).
Most ALEs in the state subscribe to a closed-source SIS: Wings; most school districts and program administrators have either no knowledge of open source SIS, or are the subject of FUD from vendors like Wings.

Using docker as a development platform for nontrivial development environments sounds interesting.
This project is about learning basic docker handling, about exploring how to use it for simplifying development, and maybe (but just maybe) about providing ready-made docker containers for new team members.
There is a super cool framework for mobile phone apps available: ionic (http://ionicframework.com/)
The idea is about an easy way to allow users to make upgrades (e.g.: changing from one major version like 15.0 to version 15.1) using a GUI and as easy as they can in Ubuntu.
Something like a notification with a button to perform the upgrade with just one-click, instead of having to deal with the terminal, that frights some new users and gives them the sensation of an outdated system.
openQA has a well earned reputation as a 'full system' testing tool, able to test a system end-to-end from the operating system to it's applications on a number of different platforms and architectures, including VM's & Bare Metal.
But one area of weakness is it's usefulness as a testing tool for developers or packagers. openQA can easily test a package once it's INSIDE a distribution, but how do you test that package BEFORE submitting it to the distribution?
