My Journey to openSUSE. Asia Summit 2016 - Yogyakarta, Indonesia

Hi introduce me, I’m Umul, a girl who accidentally passed the openSUSE.Asia Summit 2016 paper submission.

This story starting from call for paper by openSUSE.Asia commiitee. I attend GLiB meetup after Idul Fitr feast to define the idea / paper that we want to submit. The former leader of GLiB, Syah Dwi Prihatmoko, urges all those present at the meeting to submit a paper.

There were nine people present at that time, 8 person submits his/her idea, but one didn’t. My paper titled "Women Contributions in Today's Technology Era", because I think, there is lack of women contribution in this technological era.

After waiting several days, there is good news ; all of GLiB member’s paper are passed, so we will became the speakers at the event. We got bussy for preparing GLiB banners and special t-shirt. :)

We departed on 29 september by Taksaka train, it takes 8 hours to arrive at Yogyakarta. After arriving at the Tugu station, we use transjogja to go to the hotel. And it was my first experience up with the Transjogja, even though actually almost the same as in Jakarta. Hehe :)

(Day 0)

The day 0 was a series of  workshops were held with a limited number of participants. Enthusiastic participants till afternoon still feels crowded.

After dinner outside the hotel, we did preparation for the first day. All members GLiB fix all their slides, hacking things that still fail, and practice speaking in front of people in one room. And when fatigue strikes, we asleep instantly.
