For the first time since its re-start as a separate company, SUSE organized their own conference last week in Orlando, USA. Since we are a long standing SUSE partner and the most active one on the Belgian market, we could not afford to miss this. And it must be said: 500 attendees for a first edition is not bad at all.
During the keynotes and our talks with SUSE management, one thing became very clear: SUSE is back, happy to be on its own feet again and ready to build great products and grow. That growth was 18% in the past twelve months and is accelerating.
