It depends if we have resources to sustain a good booth, no? ("Resources" would include but
not be limited to humans, their analogues, and convertible value tokens of debt.) I am guessing
that it would be fairly easy to come up with an introductory presentation on Apache's relevance
and importance to, say, could development, with much of the message being to underscore that
the foundations of many corporate and government "clouds" are Apache projects—Hadoop, for
starters, but also Spark, etc., and that this makes for good things. That there are also incompatibilities,
both of a legacy and modern nature, and that they can claim to be also open source, adds to
the interest value.

But it would give us a good chance to foreground the Apache Way. I think that's important.
