Subject Meetups and Swag
Date Fri, 20 Jan 2017 23:28:55 GMT

I'm contacting whoever this may concern on behalf of the Apache Mahout PMC

I just received some feedback from the Board on the Jan Board report, in which they mentioned
that we should contact regarding some swag, for the Meetups that
our project's team has been doing.

In the past 2 -3 Quarters, our team has been doing a large amount of Meetups and conference
presentations in North America and Europe; a noncomprehensive list of this past quarters'
Meetups and talks are as follows:

  1.  Sebastian Schelter presented a poster at Machine Learning Systems Workshop , NIPS 2016
Dec 10, 2016 - "Samsara: Declarative Machine Learning on Distributed Dataflow Systems" -

  1.  Andrew Palumbo presented "Apache Mahout: Beyond MapReduce" at the Orange County Big
Data Meetup, October, 2016.

  1.  Trevor Grant presented:  "Apache Mahout?! What's Next!" At

     *   Chicago Hadoop Users Group, October 2016

     *   Seattle Data Science Meetup, December 2016

     *   San Diego Big Data Meetup, December 2016

     *   Austin Data Meetup, December 2016

     *   DFW Data Science Meetup, December 2016

  1.  Andrew Musselman presented:  "Apache Mahout?! What's Next!" at Seattle Data Science
Meetup, December 2016

  1.  Suneel Marthi presented:  "Native and Distributed Machine Learning with Apache Mahout"
- Apache Big Data Europe 2016, Nov 13 2016, Seville, Spain

This cadence of these talks and Meetups have been consistent at least over the 2 quarters
previous to last.

As I've mentioned, part of the the board's feedback from this past report was that we contact
you and request some Apache Swag.  These meetups (and of course NIPS presentations and papers,
as well as ApacheCon) are great methods of Community outreach for Mahout and Apache in general,
and it seems that it would be a good marketing opportunity for Apache.

Please do let us know how to proceed,

Thank You Very Much,

Andrew Palumbo

Apache Mahout PMC Chair
