For this year's SUSECON Digital, we are looking to drive home the message of Innovate Everywhere by showcasing the creativity of our Engineering team. The theme this year features a leap into space and a nostalgic design.
Goal: Engage with our audience through game play that highlights the points of Innovate Everywhere. We want them to keep coming back to play throughout the SUSECON Digital experience.
Using beta SCK 8.6, attempt to look at hacking options with containers and/or public cloud using Azure or AWS. Do the same thing, completely separate, but using SLE Micro. Probably be a hodgepodge during hack week; but I'll have to get some work done during the week...so it will be perfect for me.
In order to aid loading openSUSE installation and Live images on USB sticks we have a little GUI program called imagewriter. It's a bit dated so Fabian started a newer one with better UI suitable for touch screen that offers the available images on demand, store images offline for conferences and fairs etc: https://github.com/openSUSE/imagewriter2
It's written in C++ with Qt and still needs some work to be production ready:
6 hacker ♥️.
Has no hacker:
Few months ago I switched my home workstation and media center to Micro OS desktop and I cannot imagine switching back to normal distribution.
After some consideration I realized it should work fine (even better) on the notebook I am using for work.
In the past year we've found ourselves in the middle of a pandemic, we merged two awesome companies together, and we have completely changed the trajectory of SUSE and Rancher. This project is intended to transfer knowledge of SUSE to Rancher and Rancher to SUSE for those who may be challenged with time and resources to try new things. This gives us a chance to explore other uses for Kubernetes all while taking advantage of older equipment (for use as workers) we may have to spare.
I once had a bad dream.
I started good, a sunny day. I had just fixed an issue and push it to my fork, in order to create a Pull Request. I was happy. It felt awesome to have found a fix so elegant. Two lines of code.
Bug reports can be a great source of information, but usually finding the information requires extensive work in reading through all of the discussions and understanding the details about it.
Could it be that machine learning can be used to extract meaningful information out of that? That's what this project is about.
There is always something to do if you run the infrastructure for such a big project like openSUSE....
Our Admin wiki currently lists over 80 machines - and while we already "salted" some of them, there is always room for improvement and room to learn something new just by making your hands dirty and diving into the administrator role for a machine.
Since it has been near impossible to collaborate with other musicians at SUSE during the pandemic, I was considering an alternative music project for this Hackweek with any musicians at SUSE who might be willing to join.
In previous hack weeks, the first few days ended up being wasted on just getting it working. I'm pleased to share that the code quality has improved dramatically since the last hack week and there are now extensive test cases for both unit testing and testing against real vmcores, and we'll use both mypy and pylint (if installed) to perform static analysis. Packages for those are available in openSUSE or as part of the crash-python OBS repo for SLE15. It has been tested with kernels from 3.0 to 5.1.
inspired by the GME craze, and countless similar implementations I would like to pull data (keyword driven) from reddit/twitter and run sentiment analysis on it, perhaps with some deduplication / bot detection
Not a Hack Week project per se, but I am trying to connect with a few like minded people - I like playing Texas Holdem poker and am tired of playing bots/strangers online. I am hoping to gather a few fellow players for a game.
So you have an idea for a machine learning project for HackWeek. Have you thought about what tools you'll be using? Choosing the right set of machine learning tools and making them work together can be time consuming, not to mention the unavoidable learning curve. Perhaps you could use some help with that.
We've developed a bit of a habit within the Cloud Solutions leadership team to talk about new culinary endeavors after the weekend, telling the others about what fine dishes were created and sharing photos. We discovered that if we combine them to a menu we'll probably have the best international Dinner in the world but since we're all far away from each other we need to share the recipes to make it work.
We're likely not the only ones doing that, so why not start a SUSE cookbook in a open source developer fashion, in a git repository and jointly feed - pardon - fill it with recipes for food the SUSE family likes.
