Subject [Volunteers Needed] Apache talks at Re:publica Conference in Berlin
Date Mon, 12 Mar 2018 18:14:36 GMT
Hi All

We are looking for volunteers to do some short short talks on the 
Foundation and our upcoming EU Roadshow at the Re:publica conference in 
Berlin on 2nd - 4th May 2018. Newthinking, the company that is helping 
organise our the Apache EU Roadshow this year will have a booth at the 
Re:publica event that will also have a small area to run talks for 
audiences of approx 20-30 people. The idea is to promote both FOSS 
Backstage and the Apache EU Roadshow events.  Re:publica is a well 
attended conference with average attendance numbers of around 9000, so 
this could be a good opportunity to promote Apache in general and the EU 

You can the full details of the request below and the main points are as 

  * Conference Website :
  * Date: 2^nd - 4^th May 2018.
  * Location: Berlin
  * Talk Topics: Apache EU Roadshow, Apache Software Foundation
  * Talk Format: Presentation with Q&A, Panel Discussion etc

The talk format is open, so if several people are interested, we could 
also include do a panel discussion, but the main thing is that we need 
is someone there to promote the EU Roadshow. :-)

Please let me know if you are interested and available to participate.

Subject: 	Apache Roadshow at re:publica Berlin

Hello Sharan,

as you probably heard today from my colleague Paul Berschick, I'm 
organizing the newthiking stand at the re:publica conference on May, 2-4 
and would like to invite you (or another Apache representative) to be a 
part of our stand program there.

Re:publica <> is the biggest European 
conference on digital culture (9000 + visitors last year), covering a 
multitude of topics pertaining to digitalization, from the legal aspects 
over politics to fashion. Here 
<>'s the last year's schedule if 
you want to take a look.

We will have a stand in the sponsoring area with our own program. Our 
goal is mainly to present our upcoming projects, including FOSS 
Backstage and, hopefully, Apache Roadshow as our partner. Although it 
will only be a stand and not an official stage, we will be a part of the 
official re:publica program. We expect to have 20-30 people visiting 
each talk, depending on the topic. As for the FOSS Backstage, we are 
planning to have a talk on the basic aspects of FOSS and the importance 
of the conference as well as two additional talks from the conference 
speakers and FOSS community members in Berlin. If you set the room 
filter for 'newthinking' here 
<>, you can take a look at our 
program last year.

It would be great if there would be someone to introduce Apache 
Roadshow. Depending on your interest and availability we could provide 
you more than one slot there for more specific talks. Nevertheless, as 
the re:publica is not necessarily tech-specific, the talks should be 
quite generous and not too tech-y. The duration is about 20 min + 10 
more min for Q&A. We are open for other formats, e.g. discussion panels, 
workshops, etc. that could then last longer. Please let me know if 
you're interested. I would appreciate if you could share this with 
Apache community as well.

Looking forward to your feedback.

All the best,
