Taipei, openSUSE Asia Summit, Power of Community


When you’re planning a trip to Asia, Taipei probably isn’t be the first destination that comes to mind, as it’s often ignored in favor of more popular tourist spots like Tokyo or Hong Kong. But don’t ignore a trip to Taiwan’s big city — it’s an inexpensive, quirky metropolis with some of the best night markets in all of Asia. This is the second time i’ve visited Taipei for openSUSE Asia Summit.

openSUSE Asia Summit 2018, Jogja dan Binar dalam Dunia Kode Sumber Terbuka

openSUSE Asia Summit 2018 selesai digelar kemarin. Rangkaian acara total digelar sejak 8-13 Agustus di National Taiwan University of Science and Technology, Taipei. Tulisan saya dalam Bahasa Inggris dapat dibaca pada tautan ini.

Sebagai Summit kedua di Taiwan, openSUSE Asia Summit 2018 berlangsung sangat ramai, banyak kawan-kawan lama dari beberapa summit lainnya ikut hadir. Acara Summit kali ini lebih spesial karena merupakan kolaborasi tiga acara COSCUP X GNOME.Asia Summit X openSUSE Asia Summit.

Saya kebagian sesi hari pertama, Sabtu 11 Agustus pukul 14.30. Materi yang saya bawakan berjudul: How Jogja Become City of GNU/Linux User Friendly. Slide presentasi saya dapat diakses di tautan ini.

Dalam sesi ini, saya menceritakan sejarah komunitas GNU/Linux di Jogja ketika awal-awal saya berkenalan dengan GNU/Linux dalam rentang tahun 2009-2015 bahkan era sebelum saya datang ke Jogja.

Era komunitas GNU/Linux di Jogja mulai pudar sejak periode Startup mulai menggeliat di Jogja, sekitaran tahun 2015. Dalam catatan ini saya melihat bahwa teknologi berkode sumber terbuka tidak lagi dalam tatanan bagaimana berkenalan. Namun sudah menuju bagaimana teknologi ini dapat dimanfaatkan secara maksimal.

Di bagian akhir cerita, saya menceritakan Apa itu Binar Academy dan bagaimana Binar Academy memanfaatkan GNU/Linux dan teknologi bersumber kode terbuka lainnya dalam proses akademi. Beberapa hal malah merupakan keharusan menggunakan teknologi tersebut dalam proses akademi.

Beberapa teknologi yang kita gunakan di Binar Academy:

  • Sistem operasi, Ervien, salah satu mentor dan saya menggunakan opensuse 42.3 dalam keseharian, beberapa mentor lainnya menggunakan Ubuntu 16.04 dan Linux Mint.
  • Bahasa pemograman, Ruby on Rails, Vue JS, Kontlin,
  • Metabase, Mattermost
  • Database, mysql, postgresql
  • Webserver, NGINX
  • AWS Platform, Heroku
  • Gitlab dan Gitlab-CI

Harapannya adalah semakin banyak orang, lembaga, perusahaan yang memanfaatkan GNU/Linux dan teknologi bersumber kode terbuka lainnya.

Terimakasih untuk openSUSE dan Binar Academy yang menjadi sponsor perjalanan saya.
