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.

FYI, The last openSUSE.Asia Summit was held in Tokyo, Japan.

Here we go. Me and the famous Mr. gecko!!
