# COSCUP 2018 總召的話
大家好，歡迎來到 COSCUP x GNOME.Asia x openSUSE.Asia 2018！
今年的 COSCUP 又會有許多跟往年不同的地方，希望老朋友可以接受這樣的改變，新朋友也可以喜歡這樣的社群研討會。COSCUP 由 2006 年開始舉辦，今年移師至台灣科技大學國際大樓舉辦，並且與 GNOME.Asia Summit 和 openSUSE.Asia Summit 兩大國際社群共同合作，目的是希望帶給大家更多跟國外社群參與者更多接觸和合作的機會。議程方面，今年議程軌數高達 14 軌，延續去年社群議程的作法，由社群自己選擇議程，同樣的，休息時間也都是各自錯開、自行決定的唷，另外還加上再次舉辦的親子工作坊，歡迎父母帶著小朋友一起來參加。其他會場服務上也有些不同，因為資源問題，今年不提供大會 WiFi 服務，也沒有固定的蛋糕點心時間和午餐餐盒，改由提供一整天的點心和飲用水。但今年重新舉辦了 BoF，時間是第一天晚上議程結束後，希望屆時大家可以多跟喜歡的社群閒話家常，也許就冒出了某些創意呢，若沒有特別參與的社群，也可以來交交朋友，分享一些開發心得。
COSCUP 能順利舉辦要感謝許多人的幫忙，謝謝各位的到場參與，也感謝辛苦動手參與的志工、社群、講者、贊助商、個人贊助、GNOME.Asia 成員與 openSUSE.Asia 成員，請大家除了聽聽這些豐富的演講之餘，也多多到贊助攤位與社群攤位聊一聊，支持一下說不定可以拿到意外的小禮品喔！希望大家這兩天玩得愉快，滿載而歸，在經過社群的充電後，可以更有精力的面對工作或學業，也可以更積極的參與社群活動唷！
COSCUP 2018 總召
# openSUSE board 的話
The openSUSE project is a worldwide effort that promotes the use of Linux everywhere. openSUSE creates some of the world's best Linux distributions, as well as a variety of tools, such as OBS, OpenQA, Kiwi, YaST, OSEM, working together in an open, transparent and friendly manner as part of the worldwide Free and Open Source Software community.
The project is controlled by its community and relies on the contributions of individuals, working as testers, writers, translators, usability experts, artists and ambassadors or developers. The project embraces a wide variety of technology, people with different levels of expertise, speaking different languages and having different cultural backgrounds.
The two main offerings from the openSUSE Project are the distributions "Leap" and "Tumbleweed". openSUSE Leap is a brand new way of building openSUSE and is new type of hybrid Linux distribution. Leap uses source from SUSE Linux Enterprise (SLE), which gives Leap a level of stability unmatched by other Linux distributions, and combines that with community developments to give users, developers and sysadmins the best stable Linux experience available. Contributor and enterprise efforts for Leap bridge a gap between matured packages and newer packages found in openSUSE’s other distribution Tumbleweed.
The Tumbleweed distribution is a pure rolling release version of openSUSE containing the latest stable versions of all software instead of relying on rigid periodic release cycles. The project does this for users that want the newest stable software. It is the perfect choice for Linux enthusiasts, developers, and openSUSE contributors.
Tumbleweed also has a container-focused derivative, openSUSE Kubic. Using a read-only root file systems with an transactional (atomic) update mechanism, Kubic offers all of the benefits of the latest software available in Tumbleweed, with a stable, reliable, and recoverable platform for running containers and/or kubernetes upon.
Regardless of what sort of free or open source software you're interested in, the openSUSE Project would like to invite you to use our software and work with us to bring your software and the software you're interested in to a wider audience.
We're really excited to be supporting COSCUP and co-locating our openSUSE Asia conference with you all this year. As we say in the Project, "Have a lot of fun!"

# GNOME 簡介
The GNOME Foundation is a non-profit organization that furthers the goals of the GNOME Project, helping it to create a free software computing platform for the general public that is designed to be elegant, efficient, and easy to use.
## How it works
While the many GNOME contributors develop code, smash bugs, write documentation, and help users, the Foundation acts as a guiding hand in the process and provides resources and infrastructure. It steers releases, determines what software is officially part of the Project, and acts as the official face of the GNOME Project to the outside world, though it delegates most of its authority to specialized teams.
But that face, like the face of GNOME itself, is made by you. The GNOME Foundation membership is open to all GNOME contributors, and every member of the Board of Directors is a contributing member of the GNOME community. Becoming a member of the Foundation strengthens your voice in the Project and gives you an opportunity to vote on goals that will steer the GNOME Project into the future.
