openSUSE 12.2 is going to be released on September 5th 2012! and there is no better way to enjoy the new release than with your fellow openSUSE peers! Launch parties are events around the release of a new openSUSE version. What kind of event is up to the organizers but it's usually an event to spread the word about the new version, share knowledge with each other and get people to know openSUSE. Most of all is of course about having a lot of fun...
If you are hosting one, go ahead and add it to list below. To add it to the map, please add your coordinates. If you're interested in hosting one but have questions, see the Launch Party HOWTO or email the marketing mailinglist
You can find posters on this page and other materials via the navigation bar on top.
If you want to give a presentation, find some materials on the Presentations page.
Picking a date
Launch parties aren't limited to the release date. It's fine to organize a party 3 or 4 weeks after the release, when people have had a chance to test it out!
Getting cool stuff™
It's always nice to have some things to give away at a release party. The openSUSE marketing team has some goodies like stickers, flyers, DVD's and t-shirts we can send to you! You could do a little lottery or give away some things to long-time local openSUSE contributors and the DVD's and flyers you can give to people to hand out to their friends and family.
If there is anything left, just save it for a local conference where you can hand it out!
If you want to organize a release party and get stuff, put your details below and order the materials via this website. Note clearly in the description that you want stuff for a release party so we prioritize your request!!!
Count on at least 2 weeks shipping and handling time in Europe and the USA, 3-4 weeks in the rest of the world.
And be sure to fill in the list below as complete as possible!!!
