Subject Re: Draft Proposal for FOSDEM Devroom
Date Mon, 18 Sep 2017 15:03:31 GMT
Hi All

I've updated the proposal yet again. Based on the feedback I'm going to call the devroom the
Apache Software Foundation Collaboration and Community Lab (or ASF CoLab for short).  

https://s.apache.org/XBKX

The main focus will be to provide a common space to:

- engage with users, contributors and committers from any of the ASF project communities
- encourage cross collaboration and knowledge sharing across Apache projects
- promote a healthy open source development culture
- disseminate information around common themes that are of interest to Apache and open source
projects in general 
- attract new open source contributors by providing introduction to projects and technologies
- collaborate and build relationships with other open source foundations and institutions

I know the devroom name is a long one but I like the fact that it can have simple abbreviation
:-) 

Also I think the description of the devroom focus is quite broad so could allow for a wide
range of topics including individual project presentations. I also like the idea of it being
a 'Community Lab' so being more about participation.

Thanks to all that provided input on this thread and pending anymore - I'll look to get this
request submitted this evening.

Thanks
