An overview of the OpenRazer project providing support for many (gaming) peripherals by Razer. They are only providing their proprietary Razer Synapse software for Windows, but of course Linux gamers and all other Linux users want to control their RGB lights and other settings too! So OpenRazer came to be and is now supporting over 150 devices in a fully open-source Linux driver that's available for Ubuntu and many other Linux distributions.

The talk will give a broad overview over the project, how it came to be what it is today, the future plans and will give a small peek into some of the technical details.

If you have any peripherals from Razer, install OpenRazer and let us know what you think! Or send a pull request!
