Easy openSUSE Upgrade

a project by maverick74

The idea is about an easy way to allow users to make upgrades (e.g.: changing from version 15.0 to version 15.1) using a GUI and as easy as they can in Ubuntu. Something like a notification with a button to perform the upgrade with just one-click, instead of having to deal with the work of manually disable all of the repositories, update them manually, open the terminal and finally make a "zypper dup" .

a project by jeff_mahoney

New Development In previous hack weeks, the first few days ended up being wasted on just getting it working. I'm pleased to share that the code quality has improved dramatically since the last hack week and there are now extensive test cases for both unit testing and testing against real vmcores, and we'll use both mypy and pylint (if installed) to perform static analysis. Packages for those are available in openSUSE or as part of the crash-python OBS repo for SLE15. It has been tested with kernels from 3.0 to 5.1.

SUSE @home Hands On Lab

a project by johnmpugh

Project Description

In the past year we've found ourselves in the middle of a pandemic, we merged two awesome companies together, and we have completely changed the trajectory of SUSE and Rancher. This project is intended to transfer knowledge of SUSE to Rancher and Rancher to SUSE for those who may be challenged with time and resources to try new things. This gives us a chance to explore other uses for Kubernetes all while taking advantage of older equipment (for use as workers) we may have to spare.

Port some classic game to Linux

a project by MDoucha

Let's pick some old classic game, reverse engineer the data formats and game rules and write an open source engine for it from scratch. Some games from 1990s are simple enough that we could have a playable prototype by the end of the week. Write which games you'd like to hack on in the comments. Don't forget to check e.g. on Github and SourceForge whether the game is ported already.

Preserve SUSE's history

Project Description

SUSE dissolved an old warehouse, containing lots and lots of boxes with old SUSE / SuSE / S.u.S.E software. All of those boxes were originally going to be dumped in March 2021, which could be prevented. They are now stored in the SUSE Event Area in Nuremberg.

Rewrite Jangouts using React/Redux

a project by IGonzalezSosa

We already tried to improve the Jangouts data model in the past and, although we made quite some progress, we did not finish it. I've been playing a bit with React and Redux lately, and I would like now to try a different approach replacing Angular with that combo. Using Vue.js might be another option too. Of course, we are not going to rewrite Jangouts in just one week, but let's see how far we can go. By the way, the redesign branch contains some interesting stuff from one of the GSoC that we should consider.

openSUSE Landing Page Prototype

a project by hennevogel is the single most accessed page in the SUSE/openSUSE universe. With 1.5 million visits per month it generates 2.5 million page views and has around 500 people on the page at any given time. Yet it's one of the oldest, crufty pages we have! It doesn't concentrate on what it should do: Tell people about the distro so they download it. It's design is 5 years old, it's not mobile, it's not accessible. There is absolutely no interactive, engaging content at all and the technology used goes as far as a shell script/cron to update dynamic content.

Open Sauce is in our Genes

a project by rsimai

We've developed a bit of a habit within the Cloud Solutions leadership team to talk about new culinary endeavors after the weekend, telling the others about what fine dishes were created and sharing photos. We discovered that if we combine them to a menu we'll probably have the best international Dinner in the world but since we're all far away from each other we need to share the recipes to make it work. We're likely not the only ones doing that, so why not start a SUSE cookbook in a open source developer fashion, in a git repository and jointly feed - pardon - fill it with recipes for food the SUSE family likes.
