Yes please. I want to work with Sally to figure out how to better amplify ASF related events
without significantly adding to her workload. Having tools like those you describe are a great

Is it possible to make the source available?

Subject: Apache meetups in the coming week

Hi, folks.

In my day job, I have some tools that use the API to extract
upcoming events around the technology I work with (in this case,
OpenStack). I then manually filter, because there are always false
positives, and do weekly email/wiki/twitter updates based on what I
find. The community seems to appreciate it.

Today, I ran my tool against the search term 'apache', and then filtered
out everything but the ones that were, I thought, obviously related to
Apache technologies. I got 35 meetups in the next 7 days. The output of
my script is pasted below, for your perusal.

This entire process took about 10 minutes. The script, of course, takes
seconds, but checking each event can take a little time. And of course
'apache' produces a lot of false positives. The initial list was 81
items. Lots of hiking trails and native american dance classes featured.

Anyways, my question is, do you folks think that this would be a useful
service to provide to the community - to put this list somewhere each
week. Perhaps this list, perhaps somewhere more prominent like on for example.

Note that this is the easy bit. Attempting to tweet these events is much
more time consuming, because it involves scheduling them at appropriate
times for each time zone, and so on. I do that as part of my day job,
but in this case, perhaps we can rely in folks around the world to
tweet/facebook/g+ individual events?

This is a treasure trove of project promotion that we're just leaving on
the table, and with a few lines of Python it's there for us to use.



The following are the meetups I'm aware of in the coming week where
Apache enthusiasts are likely to be present. If you know
of others, please let me know, and/or add them to

If there's a meetup in your area, please consider attending. If you
attend, please consider taking a few photos, and possibly even writing
up a brief summary of what was covered.
