Subject Re: Solutions.Hamburg: Invitation to provide ApacheContent
Date Thu, 25 May 2017 13:23:25 GMT
Hi Rich,

Well I think we should be able to fill three days. If we fill them with introductory level
I think I’ll contact the Silipion guys and ask if they were willing to do this: 
- One day Ops
- One day Dev
- One day Apache Way stuff

Think this would be a good compromise. Fitting in the entire Apache Way stuff into a 30 minute
keynote doesn’t sound too tempting ;-)

I’ll contact them and get back with feedback as soon as I can get it. Will probably be next
week as today is a public holiday and a lot of
People also stay home on Friday.

    So, based on the many positive responses, it looks like we could
    definitely put together a credible track, even without doing a broader CFP.
    Christofer, what's your final take on this - do we want to try to tackle
    more than one day? Do you think we should pursue three days - one
    "Apache Way" kind of day, and two of project/technical content? Or
    should we stick to a single day?
