The acronym ENOS stands for ‘Encontro Nacional de openSUSE’, a Portuguese expression which can be translated to ‘National openSUSE Meeting’, an event meant to unite the Portuguese openSUSE users.

The purpose of ENOS is to give an opportunity to the Portuguese openSUSE users to be together, as well as provide the participants an insight view on the latest developments on the openSUSE project and stimulate them to take an active part on the community itself.

ENOS 2008 is the second yearly edition (read about ENOS 2007 here) of the event and will be held in Instituto Superior de Engenharia do Porto (ISEP), Porto, Portugal on September 6th.

This year we will have special guests giving some talks:

  • Ricardo Cruz (YaST-GTK maintainer) will introduce us YaST and how easily is to create a module for it. PackageKit and libzypp will be be introduced.
  • Andreia Gaita (Mono developer) presenting Mono open source project, sponsored by Novell.
  • Rui Capela (Linux Audio hacker) will talk about his audio applications, focusing on Qtractor, an Audio/MIDI multi-track sequencer application.

As in last year, attendees will have the opportunity to do the LPI Certification Exams at the event with a 50% discount off by LPI Master Affiliate DRI. Email [email protected] to sign in.

Anyone interested in attend should sign in or email [email protected] so we can have a better idea of how many people we should expect (tip: you will not leave the event without some openSUSE goodies!).

Big thanks to Porto Linux, ISEP, and Novell for the support!
