Suse launches conference to celebrate 20th anniversary

09 Feb 12

Linux distributor Suse has announced plans to celebrate reaching its 20th anniversary later this year, including a massive worldwide conference called SuseCon.

The company was founded in September 1992, by three German University students and a software engineer. The name was originally ‘S.u.S.E.’, an acronym for a German term that meant software and systems development (check out this video for pronunciation).

Nils Brauckmann, president and general manager of Suse, says SuseCon will be just one in a series of worldwide events acknowledging the people, events and technological developments that have brought Suse to where it is today.

"We have a lot to celebrate in 2012,” Brauckmann says.

SuseCon will be held from September 18 to 21, at the Caribe Royale Hotel in Orlando, Florida. Customers, partners and enthusiasts are all invited to attend, with registrations set to open in April. Go here for more.
