Subject Re: The Apache Software Foundation Community Sponsorship Trade with DeveloperWeek
Date Thu, 04 Jan 2018 11:12:19 GMT
Hi All 

I've got a response back from them and they still would like us to participate in their offer.

ASF Involvement
I asked about Apache involvement in the event since if we are listed as a community sponsor
then we generally have a booth or at least a talk at the event. Their response was as follows:

“our community sponsors help promote our event and, in return, we help promote their
company. One of our PRO speaker workshops by Denis Magda of GridGain is on "Apache Ignite
Service Grid: Foundation of Your Microservices-Based Solution"

Email Blast
They are going to send me a copy of their email blast so we can look at that to see if it
 would be acceptable or not.  They seem to be OK with it being limited to the ComDev mailing
list, a paragraph on our blog and a tweet.

They also said that we could do create an email about or promoting the ASF that they would
send out to their event mailing list.

So that is the latest status. As soon as I get more info, I will let you know.
