Make Tumbleweed work on the GPD Win
a project by aplazas
The GPD Win is a Nintendo 3DS XL sized PC featuring a keyboard and gaming controls. Having openSUSE working on it would be great, unfortunately Tumbleweed doesn't work at all on it and Leap 42.2 is lacking many important features.
openSUSE on chromebooks (crouton)
an idea by mbrugger
Update for 2018 The only thing missing right now is a i386 Tumbleweed JeOS image. With that we should be good. Any help on that is highly appreciated.
retro-gtk: Support Hardware Rendering
a project by aplazas
retro-gtk is a toolkit for GTK+-based Libretro frontends. It is mainly used by GNOME Games to play retro games via Libretro gaming console emulators. Currenly retro-gtk supports only software rendering. There are two ways hardware rendering can be used in retro-gtk:
"Physical" notifications with Raspberry Pi and addressable LEDs
a project by dannysauer
I'd like a way to have a device on my desk which lights up to indicate that I have something I should be paying attention to. Initially, I'd like this to be for Office365 calendar events and GitHub mentions, but ideally it should support arbitrary messages. The plan is to assign specific colors (ideally "patterns" consisting of a sequence of colors and time) to specific message types. I have a handful of raspberry Pi Zeroes, a couple of OLEDs, a strand of individually-addressable RGB LEDs, a power supply, and some misc electronics (like the 3.3-5v logic level shifter necessary for the 5v LED strand). I'm thinking Python is probably the way to go for the software. I'm hoping OpenSUSE actually works on the Pi zero. :D If not, there's an ESP32 with a built-in display and a few Pi 3s laying around barely used, maybe one of them will work.

Support for DRM platform drivers
an invention by tdz
This project could get us rid of the last fbdev drivers we're stil shipping: efifb and vesafb. Platform drivers handle hardware that is not auto-detected, but somehow there. For graphics this would be VGA, VESA, or UEFI framebuffers. In SUSE Linux, we currently support VESA and UEFI with fbdev drivers. Those load early in the boot process and maintain graphics hardware until the actual driver takes over.
Port some classic game to Linux
a project by MDoucha
Let's pick some old classic game, reverse engineer the data formats and game rules and write an open source engine for it from scratch. Some games from 1990s are simple enough that we could have a playable prototype by the end of the week. Write which games you'd like to hack on in the comments. Don't forget to check e.g. on Open Source Game Clones, Github and SourceForge whether the game is ported already.
Default web camera selector for GNOME
an idea by lkotek
There is no possibility to select default web camera at GNOME settings, but we can easily run into an environment with multiple cameras (integrated and the external one). As a result we can only select web camera if certain application allows us to do so via menu provided by the same application. This could be a problem, because not all applications do so - for example Firefox automatically selects first available camera on the system. This project aims to find suitable way for adding this functionality at GNOME level. For example via contribution to Tweaks tool (formerly known as a Gnome Tweak Tool) or other tool if necessary.
L0 Supportconfig Monitoring and Analysis using ML
a project by andavis
- Create an automated L0-support-like analytics solution for supportconfig data that is tiered across a customer's environment and SUSE environment (similar to a very modular AIOps Edge-Core approach). A pictorial overview of the ecosystem
Write an open source driver for the DeckLink Mini Recorder 4K
a project by patrikjakobsson
The DeckLink Mini Recorder 4K is a PCI Express capture card featuring one 6G-SDI and one HDMI 2.0a connection. It can record all formats uncompressed up to 2160p30. The big difference with this card compared to many other capture cards is that it captures all the raw data uncompressed. This allows for it to be used for automatic testing of graphics cards.
Face recognition on nextcloud with TPU
an idea by jordimassaguerpla
I have all my photos on a private NAS running nextcloud.
a project by aburlakov
A sentiment analyzer is a software that can distinguish the emotion of the text. The programming language will be either python or C++. (This is the first hackweek for this project.)
Investigate NeuroFedora and package the missing pieces in openSUSE
an idea by qkzhu
NeuroFedora is an initiative to provide a ready-to-use Fedora based Free/Open source software distribution for neuroscience. It includes computational modeling software, analysis tools, general productivity tools for neuroscientists.

Blog about our ScummVM Freeware games packages
a project by sndirsch
Blog about ScummVM Freeware games of our openSUSE Build Service games project
a project by jcronenberg
Some time ago I started writing an i8080 emulator as an exercise to learn more about Rust, Emulators and low-level understanding of how CPUs work. I never finished it though. Since the Gameboy is basically a slightly modified version of the i8080 for this Hackweek I want to use the existing skeleton that I have and write a full emulator for the Gameboy CPU.
Add support for the Medion Life P4000 Smartwatch to Gadgetbridge
a project by dancermak
Aldi was/is selling the Medion Life P4000 Smartwatch, which is currently only supported by Medion's proprietary Fitness Pro App. It would be great to add support for this Smartwatch to Gadgetbridge, so that it can be used on a Android Smartphone without proprietary apps.
Create a DRM driver for VGA video cards
a project by tdz
Yes, those VGA video cards. The goal of this project is to implement a DRM graphics driver for such devices. While actual hardware is hard to obtain or even run today, qemu emulates VGA output. VGA has a number of limitations, which make this project interesting.
