Subject Re: [Volunteers Needed] Apache talks at Re:publica Conference in Berlin
Date Thu, 22 Mar 2018 10:54:59 GMT
Hi Sharan,

I live close to Berlin in Leipzig and would may be able to present the
foundation on the 3th or 4th of may on the re:publica.
However I'm not involved in the FOSS Backstage and the Apache EU Roadshow
But I can give a general talk about the foundation and point the events.

Best Regards
