Feeling very comfortable with your (open)SUSE desktop? Don't get too comfortable; there's a lot of innovation out there. Try living in a different system for a few days, and see if you can find some innovative paradigms to bring back 'home' with you. Here's a few suggestions:

Build an open-source appliance editor for SUSE Studio that interacts only with the API, using modern JS web frameworks.
For users, this provides an opportunity to influence, or create unique tailored editing experiences for Studio appliances. For Studio maintainers, this provides a road towards a modern appliance editor, and a chance to remove tens of thousands of lines of brittle legacy code. For hackers, this provides a chance to get your feet wet with modern client-side web technologies, like
We from the public cloud dev team regularly upload generic and product images to be available in public cloud systems like Amazon EC2, Google Compute Engine or Microsoft Azure. The task of uploading stuff there is not only about having the tools it's also about having the right environment which provides account credentials as well as access to the image when they are built in the buildservice. Also the location from where the upload happens can make a difference in performance.
Therefore a framework to combine all this into a more clean process should be developed. The basic parts of the project consists of:
Meet up NBG meeting room Paris with fellow Ruby on Rails hackers, throw an editor/shell onto the wall, grab a cup of coffee and refactor OSEM code together.
That way we can share knowledge about setting up the development environment, editor tricks, RSpec patterns, gems or general rails code. Interested? Join us!
We have some internal systems for videoconferencing like Big Blue Button or OpenMeetings. But in my experience none of them can compare to Google Hangouts, which is still the best free (as in free beer) alternative for videoconferencing with integrated screen sharing.
While implementing an alternative to Sqwiggle on previous hackweek, I discovered Janus, a lightweight WebRTC gateway that proved to be a quite capable tool to implement video applications.
Nailed is a Sinatra app which currently shows Bugzilla, Github and Jenkins [WIP] data. The data gets fetched/refreshed by a ruby command line tool in the background.
you can have a look at a running instance on http://nailed.cloud.suse.de
One of the winning factors of Docker is the Docker Hub. This the a place where the Docker community shares their images.
Thanks to Docker's integrated build system it is possible to create new Docker images by just extending an existing one. That's why the Docker Hub is so useful.
openSUSE Connect is almost forgotten tool used only for elections. It would be nice to update it, polish it a little bit, disable functions that nobody uses and fix those few that people would actually like to use.
Implement file system image build using the Builder infrastructure. The project will create additional builders for the ext filesystems laying the ground work for restructuring other filesystem builders.
