Subject Fwd: Incubator Lightning Talks at ApacheCon US?
Date Wed, 06 Sep 2006 09:14:18 GMT
Folks,

FYI: if anyone is going to ApacheCon US, this is a good opportunity  
for informal introduction of Cayenne. Sort of an "elevator pitch". I  
am not very good at doing those, but I am not going anyways :-) If  
somebody wants to do such presentation (time may be decreased from 15  
to 5 minutes, there is a discussion on the incubator list now), just  
drop a note to general@incubator.apache.org.

Andrus
