Subject Re: Adding roster of community-focused talks
Date Wed, 24 May 2017 16:54:07 GMT
What *I* would like to work on is a listing of non-technical talks by
Apache committers that have good slides, and have been presented well at
an ApacheCon (or other major event), from people who might be willing to
present those or similar slides at other events.\

Think of it as a curated roster of existing Apache speakers/talks that
might be part of a future "ASF Speaker's Bureau", focused on
non-technical talks.  We have a lot of great speakers and proven talks
they've given; but it would be helpful to speakers and learners alike to
have a better way to organize them.

Early beta version of a public listing:

Currently derived from static data, but would be derived from contents
of the yaml files as noted below in the future.  It would be useful to
categorize by topic, which events the talks were given at, and possibly
link this to the "Local Speakers" app other folks are working on so
companies interested in inviting speakers know where they're located
(all opt-in, obviously).
