Jos Poortvliet on openSUSE Merchandising

Filed under
SUSE

This week, we have team member Jos Poortvliet talk about what he’s been working on in the merchandising area.

A bit of history

The openSUSE Ambassador program was started by my predecessor Zonker to support volunteers who wanted to represent openSUSE at events. I really liked the idea and worked with many people to build it up further. This has been quite successful and we’ve had a presence at hundreds of events over the last years.

Why events

Events are one way of reaching new users, but they also allow us to touch base with our existing users. We show openSUSE to visitors, help interested people install it, answer questions existing users have or help them out with problems.
