“SUSE was built upon the premise of community and collaboration. The SUSECon agenda was built so attendees can get the most value from their experience—networking with fellow SUSE users, partners and customers, while also improving their careers via the testing made available from the Linux Professional Institute.”
“...having passed a year since the acquisition of Novell by Attachmate and its subsequent instantiation as a standalone division, as well as being its 20th anniversary, SUSE had its first user group meeting. All in all, the portents were good, and SUSE got its core messages across to an audience of about 500 of its users as well as a cadre of the more sophisticated (IMHO) industry analysts.”
“We are pleased that SUSE supports Linux Professional Institute (LPI) as the most widely recognized and accepted Linux certification by inviting us to SUSECon2012 to give our LPIC-1 and CLA certification testing on-site. SUSE has been a frequent supporter of our Linux certification program such that IT professionals who earn our LPIC-1 certification are also eligible for their SUSE Certified Linux Administrator certification.”
