Subject Re: Solutions.Hamburg: Invitation to provide ApacheContent
Date Thu, 25 May 2017 13:44:54 GMT
Hi Rich, 

Well I’ll contact them and ask them if they would be willing to do this. Then we can decide
on how we do the talk selection. 

However, I personally would have a strong preference for the option in which we create a “plot”
for the conference and then ask the corresponding projects to fill the slots. As the level
should be rather basic, I think a normal call for paper would provide us with lots of “How
recent string-theory research results affect quantum computers” like talk-submissions. So,
if we had several “Introduction to Apache project X” talks and ask the projects to send
someone they think would do the job nicely, we might even have less work. At least my experience
from the FlexJS Summit was that this resulted in less work and a better overall plot (After
all we are talking about 4 dev, 4 ops and 4 Apache Way slots and not a three digit number
of talks)

    Perfect.
    
    Question 2: Do you want to do a general CFP for the dev + ops content,
    or do you want to craft a track and then go hunting for the "right"
    speakers. The former is easier. The latter is more work but gives us
    exactly the message we're trying to send. I'd be glad to help out with
    either approach.
