Interview with Jos Poortvliet

Jos Poortvliet , tell us about yourself. Who are you?

Hey, I’m a Dutch Free Software enthusiast living in Berlin with my Brazilian
wife Camila. I’ve been around Free and Open Source for over 10 years, mostly
active around marketing and community related things.

Which are your main responsibilities and roles inside the openSUSE Project as a community manager?

I’m active in marketing, helping the project communicate to the outside
world. But also internally and between SUSE and openSUSE. I am also active
on the governance side of the project, with strategy or board related things
and helping to handle conflicts if they arise.

How do people from the community understand (or perceive) your role inside the openSUSE Project ?

He, good question. In the beginning, many people expected me to take charge
and play a leadership role. As that is clearly something which does fit
neither openSUSE nor me, I did not do that and made very clear that I did
not see that as my job. Instead, I presented myself as a contributor who had
to earn his place like everybody else. I think I did that, in the last
years, and today people come to me for advice mostly in the areas of
communication, marketing and conflicts – and I happily stay out of
especially technical decisions.

Imagine that you have to build and manage a new community , inside the openSUSE Project. Which are the steps you gonna follow so as to assure that this community will not affect the openSUSE Project? How are you gonna attract  people from the openSUSE Project to participate in the this new community?

Depends on what you are looking for, what you want to create. If it is
something like the ARM project or a new openSUSE derivative, it SHOULD
affect the project – ARM is adding something to openSUSE, so are the
derivatives. That is good!

So, just announce it as that – a cool, new thing in openSUSE. That is not
particularly hard to communicate. I would not communicate it before it has
something to show for and in most cases that means first gathering some
people who want to work on it and making a ‘first release’, then announcing
where you plan to take it and inviting people to join.

Of course, it would be possible to create a project which might not be
naturally seen as an addition. Say, you want to ‘fork’ openSUSE into a more
stable (or more bleeding edge) version. That is an entirely different thing
and should be handled with a little more care: one can imagine that this
takes up resources which otherwise might be put in openSUSE Factory, for
example. But here, too, I think it is important to first talk to some core
people, get a team up, create a ‘proof of concept’ and simply have a clear
plan. Then, based on what objections you expect, make sure to communicate it
in a non-threatening way.

Do you use any tool to manage the information inside the community (e.g bugzilla , statistics in mailing lists,repositories etc) and how?

We have some statistics but these focus around the release, marketing and
user base (number of downloads, page views to our sites, number of active
installations, things like that). And we have some idea about development
(number of commits to Factory, amount of work in devel projects). We have
very little, if any, info on communication related things.

One of the tasks of the community manager is the volunteer management. In terms of measurement and success can you give a percentage of
 “assigned” tasks per volunteer and successfully finished task per volunteer?

I have very little idea here. First of all, because I am restricting myself
to a subset of the community: the marketing area. Second, because my work
frequently shifts and I don’t always interact with the same people. And
last, because I don’t keep metrics like that – I work very much on a one-on-
one base. I’m not saying that that is the best way to do it but I’m not much
of a number man 😉

According to your experience ,  how many months approximately needs a volunteer to be “productive”?

It depends quite a bit in what area and what skills he/she brings. But you
are often looking at quite a long time – a minimum of a month but easily
half a year.

Would you call yourself a mentor? And why?

Sometimes, when I’m actually mentoring new people…

If a project , a task or an idea “assigned” to a volunteer fails, how do you manage this kind failure?
I try to catch it myself but often, I delegate based on trust. So if a
volunteer doesn’t do something, well, it doesn’t get done. That is
responsibility, yes?

Finally tell us , why openSUSE and openSUSE Community rocks?

There are a lot of reasons – but for me, the most important part is the open
mind. Every project has people angry at the world, every project has
friendly and unfriendly people. But overall, openSUSE as a community is very
open to both newcomers and working with others. We’re not such a navel-
gazing community, we pragmatic and willing to look outside our borders,
adopting technologies from other communities and working with them on it.
That is maybe not totally unique, but certainly rare.

Hacking around with the Geekos (openSUSE 12.3 Marketing Hackathon)

kde_party_group_foto

Event

From 31st of January to 10th of February I participated in openSUSE 12.3 Marketing Hackathon.   The Hackathon took place in SUSE Headquarters [Nuremberg,Germany] from 4/02 to 10/02. Before that we participated in FOSDEM by promoting to the crowd the openSUSE Project and the oSC13 as well. Our participation in FOSDEM was really successful cause people asked a lot of questions around the upcoming release of openSUSE and expressed their interest for this year’s openSUSE Conference.  Thanks to Carlos we spread out and informed a lot of people about the oSC13.

Apart from that this year I spent more time in joining presentations. I admit that I liked more FOSDEM 2013 than FOSDEM 2012 because I found the presentations (Developer rooms especially) more interesting.

After FOSDEM we travelled to Nuremberg for the Marketing Hackathon . On the way back to Nuremberg I was impressed by the fact that openSUSE development continued even on the bus  with various hackers (SUSE Employees)  sitting behind their laptops, building packages. Apart from software development we drunk a lot of  openSUSE beers.  🙂

Arriving to Nuremberg , after FOSDEM , we begun to work in the 12.3 RC1 release. SUSE Employees helped us by providing all the necessary equiqment [ok , coffee , meeting rooms etc]  since we worked in the SUSE offices. Interacting with people from the company was really interesting , and i admit that during a release there is a lot of work to be done (bug fixing , artwork, ,writing , promotion , etc) .

Apart from the release we enjoyed a presentation by the SUSE Documentation team  , where we tested  a demo of the new ActiveDoc tool.ActiveDoc is used for the documentation of openSUSE and SUSE as well. Furthermore we had visits from company management , from Ralf Flaxa, VP of engineering, and Roland Haidl. During these meetings we discussed about issues  around openSUSE Project , and how the project can be improved. Ralf Flaxa and Roland Haidl thanked us for our work and they confirmed their willing to help the openSUSE Project as much as they can.

As the KDE 4.10 released during the Marketing Hackathon we all joined the KDE 4.10 release party (in Wednesday). KDE president Cornelius Schumacher and Klaas Freitag, (ownCloud Senior Developer) joined us to the party. We had really interesting discussions about various aspects (KDE , ownCloud ,oSC13 etc).

Work

Here i give a brief summary of my work

– 12.3 Screenshots (Screenshots and related wiki page) [although my laptop was broken for a while]

– 12.3 Package list and Feature (the last days)

–  12.3 Social Media messages for RC1 (and the final release as well)

– 12.3 “We are Hispanohablantes”  , a new project begun , willing to centralize the Spanish speaking communities in openSUSE. Here you can find the English [1] and Spanish [2] version of the wiki page. [if you come from a Spanish spoken country , you can add stuff in the “Information Table”.]

Conclusion

I could blog about this experience for years , but i prefered to write a resume of what i have in my mind 🙂
.  Obviously i would like to thank the following people (participants and SUSE Employees) :

Participants :

Kostas , Bruno (tigerfoot – “Champignon”) , Carlos (victorck), Carlos (CarlosRibeiro), Izabel (IzabelleValverde), Marcel (tux93 or “Silent Power”), Richard (ilmehtar), Michal (|miska|).

SUSE Employees:

Jos, Henne , Ralf, Roland,  James, Jan, Ludwig, Cornelius, Suzanne Augustin, Will, Christopher, Adrian, , Jurgen, Kenneth, Cassio, Alberto,
(if I forget someone ,please let me know 😉 )

I_love_Vietnam

And yes we all love Vietnam 🙂

You can find the photos of the event here and here as well.

And don’t forget!!

See you in oSC13 [18-22 July , Thessaloniki , Greece]  . As the Cfp is open don’t forget to register yourself and why not submit your presentation [or workshop]!!

A lot of Geekings to everybody,

“Power to the Geeko”

Statistics around FOSS Projects – Cheese

Introduction

Cheese is a GNOME application designed to take photos and videos of you and your friends with your webcam, add special effects to them and share them with your friends and family. It was written as part of Google’s 2007 Summer of Code lead by daniel g. siegel and mentored by Raphaël Slinckx, and has most of the classical photo booth features after a bare couple of months of development. Under the hood, Cheese uses GStreamer to apply fancy effects to photos and videos.

openSUSE Conference 2013: Geeko se prepara!!!


Hoy la comunidad de openSUSE se alegra y se enorgullece al anunciar la Conferencia de openSUSE 2013 , oSC13. Desde el 18 de Julio , la comunidad de openSUSE se congregará en la tierra donde hace 2500 años, los filósofos comenzaron la Época del Razonamiento. Humildemente tomando ejemplo de esos grandes hombres, trabajaremos, disfrutaremos del ambiente de camaradería de unos con otros, debatiendo y disfrutando de la tecnología para el futuro de la humanidad. Los filósofos griegos formaron parte de una revolución que cambió el mundo. TTambién nosotros somos así, y por lo tanto ,bajo de la lema “Power to the Geeko”, nos reuniremos y trabajaremos en nuestra propia revolución del Software Libre!

Sobre la conferencia

Desde el próximo 18 de Julio de 2013 y hasta el 22 de Julio, Tesalónica la segunda ciudad más grande de Grecia y el lugar donde ha tenido lugar “ 15 UNESCO World Heritage Sites” será la ciudad anfitriona de la quinta Conferencia del openSUSE . Una vez más, hablaremos y discutiremos sobre temas relacionados con nuestra distribución, la tecnología libre y de código abierto y todos aquellos temas relativos al “mundo abierto” en general, invitando a participar a las personas tanto de dentro como de fuera de nuestra comunidad de openSUSE.

El lema de la conferencia de este año es “El poder de Geeko ‘, queriendo hacer hincapié en la naturaleza ascendente de nuestro movimiento de Software Libre (un tema que cuadra perfectamente con el país donde crecieron las primeras democracias.). Tesalónica ofrece muchas oportunidades de divertirse un montón! La ciudad cuenta con hermosas playas y una animada vida nocturna, así como también cuenta con buena comida y bebida. Esperamos mucho de socializar entre las sesiones técnicas y código fuente. Esperamos compartir juntos entre sesiones técnicas y de programación.

Sobre Tesalonica y la communidad Griega

Grecia, o la República Helénica, es un país del sur de Europa, al sur de la península de los Balcanes. Se encuentra en la encrucijada de Europa, Asia y África, y está rodeado de mar – el mar Jónico, el mar Egeo y el mar Mediterráneo – con una gran cantidad de islas, es el destino ideal para las vacaciones de verano.

Salónica


Tesalónica es la segunda ciudad más grande de Grecia y la capital de la región central de Macedonia. El tráfico aéreo hacia y desde la ciudad es servido por el aeropuerto internacional de Macedonia tanto para vuelos internacionales como más cercanos. La ciudad es famosa por sus festivales, eventos y una vibrante vida cultural en general, y es considerada como la capital cultural de Grecia. Eventos como la Feria Internacional de Salónica y el Thessaloniki International Film Festival se celebran anualmente, mientras que la ciudad también alberga la más grande reunión bi-anual de la diáspora griega. En 2014 Salónica será la Capital Europea de la Juventud. Para 2013 la revista National Geographic incluye Salónica entre los primeros puestos como destino turístico en todo el mund. Tesalónica es bien conocido tanto por la vida nocturna como por la comida deliciosa.

Comunidad

La comunidad griega, conocida cariñosamente como “Greekos” dentro de la comunidad de openSUSE, se unieron de una manera semi formal hace aproximadamente 3 años. Este grupo de dedicados seguidores locales se reúne de forma regular y promueve el uso de openSUSE y el software libre dentro y fuera de Grecia. Con la experiencia de la organización de los “openSUSE Collaboration Summer Camp”, que se ha repetido varios años y la participación de los “Greekos” en la puesta en marcha de las conferencias anteriores de openSUSE, fue una decisión fácil para la junta openSUSE apoyar a Salónica para realizar la primera conferencia de openSUSE que es organizada únicamente por la comunidad.
El equipo local de voluntarios está trabajando con gran dedicación para proporcionar una experiencia increíble para todos los asistentes a oSC13.

Apoyo a los viajes

El Programa de Apoyo al viaje de openSUSE volverá a ofrecer ayuda a aquellos contribuyentes de openSUSE que deseen asistir a la conferencia de openSUSE, pero tienen limitaciones financieras. Siguiendo el procedimiento descrito en la wiki del programa de ayuda al viaje http://es.opensuse.org/openSUSE:Programa_de_ayuda_al_viaje puedes enviar tus solicitudes de ayuda al equipo de TSP desde el 23 abril al 3 mayo. Puedes mandar tu solicitud antes, pero ten en cuenta que el equipo de viaje asignará financiación para viajes de acuerdo con las directrices e informará a todos los solicitantes antes del 13 de Mayo. Esto debería ser tiempo suficiente para hacer tus reservas.

Financiación y registro de asistentes de apoyo

La conferencia de openSUSE es un evento muy grande para la comunidad para organizar y orquestar. Además de innumerables horas de trabajo voluntario para hacer este gran evento, el apoyo financiero de los patrocinadores es muy valioso y necesario. La financiación de dinero se utiliza para pagar la ubicación del evento, pagar los costos de los principales ponentes, material de marketing y otros gastos de la conferencia. La comunidad openSUSE es muy inclusiva y eso se nota en nuestros eventos, en la participación de muchos que no están directamente involucrados en openSUSE. Además, la conferencia openSUSE proporciona una oportunidad única a los patrocinadores no sólo se pongan en contactocon miembros de la comunidad de openSUSE, sino también con otros miembros de las distintas comunidades de software libre

Tienes la disponible la oportunidad de participar en la financiación de la conferencia. Para más información por favor póngase en contacto con nuestro Gerente Conferencia openSUSE patrocinio con consultas (solo en ingles):
Izabel Valverde
Sponsorship Manager
