The openSUSE project was born to ensure the existence and independence of a free (as in free speech) Linux distribution. But there is something you can take for granted if you create a community of technology enthusiasts - at some point they will start to create cool new things.

Thus, openSUSE has become the home of many open source projects like OSEM, Portus, Jangouts, Machinery or zypper-docker. Not to mention tools used to build the distribution that have evolved into generic solutions with a lot of presence outside the openSUSE scope, like the Open Build Service or openQA.

This talk will try to provide a good overview of the many cool projects living under the openSUSE umbrella, explaining their goals and current status.
