Subject Fwd: [ANNOUNCE] CFP open for ApacheCon North America 2016
Date Thu, 26 Nov 2015 13:01:44 GMT

In Budapest Melissa told me, Individuals who are not paid by their company
to attend or speak at ApacheCon NA may also be considered for travel
Based in Europe, I personally would not be able to go there without such
support. And even though it never happened while we still had PMC members
from NA, now there is nobody from America in the PMC or among (reasonably
active) committers.

While "related sessions" could be e.g. together with the larger Cordova
community, the "Mobile" category at Apache is among the smallest, it only
includes Cordova and DeviceMap AFAIR, so that limits the options for
"related sessions". I'll discuss with the Portal 3 EG, if other EG members
ideally from America would like to submit something around Portals / Pluto.
And via Device support, I could also offer DeviceMap there if other
sessions arise.
Tamaya which I did a joint presentation with Anatole could be another
topic, though there are probably fewer connections with DeviceMap.

Community growth starts by talking with those interested in your
project. ApacheCon North America is coming, are you?

We are delighted to announce that the Call For Presentations (CFP) is
now open for ApacheCon North America. You can submit your proposed
sessions at
for big data talks and
for all other topics.

ApacheCon North America will be held in Vancouver, Canada, May 9-13th
2016. ApacheCon has been running every year since 2000, and is the place
to build your project communities.

While we will consider individual talks we prefer to see related
sessions that are likely to draw users and community members. When
submitting your talk work with your project community and with related
communities to come up with a full program that will walk attendees
through the basics and on into mastery of your project in example use
cases. Content that introduces what's new in your latest release is also
of particular interest, especially when it builds upon existing well
know application models. The goal should be to showcase your project in
ways that will attract participants and encourage engagement in your
community, Please remember to involve your whole project community (user
and dev lists) when building content. This is your chance to create a
project specific event within the broader ApacheCon conference.

Content at ApacheCon North America will be cross-promoted as
mini-conferences, such as ApacheCon Big Data, and ApacheCon Mobile, so
be sure to indicate which larger category your proposed sessions fit into.

Finally, please plan to attend ApacheCon, even if you're not proposing a
talk. The biggest value of the event is community building, and we count
on you to make it a place where your project community is likely to
congregate, not just for the technical content in sessions, but for
hackathons, project summits, and good old fashioned face-to-face networking.
