Subject Fwd: ApacheCon - How you can help
Date Fri, 19 Sep 2014 13:59:31 GMT
Hi all,

I like to share with you the message below from the Executive V.P. of the
ASF regarding the Apachecon event. Please take notice and act on it. It
will surely help spread the word about this great project and its works.

I present you the url for the schedule of the talks at the Apachecon EU
2014 event to be held in Budapest from Nov 17th till Nov 21st, 2014.

If you can not make it to this event in Europe and you are living in the
US, there will be an Apachecon event in Austin, TX, USA in April 2015.

Best regards,

Pierre Smits

Subject: ApacheCon - How you can help

Here's the most important ways that you can help with ApacheCon EU right
now, in order of importance.

* If you are involved in an Apache project that has content at ApacheCon,
send messages to your users@ and dev@ list telling them about that content,
and telling people that they need to be there. Tell them specifically what
talks they need to come for, and what developers they'll get to hang out
with at the event. Tell them that they are doing their career a disservice
if they don't come to this event. Remind them that committers have a deep
discount, so if they're not committers now, here's a *great* reason for
them to get on that train for next time. Remind the US audience that if
they can't make it to Budapest, they should plan to come to Austin in April.

* Reach out to other audiences - Twitter, Facebook, and G+, certainly, but
also other non-Apache projects you're involved with that have strong
overlap with our content. Again, mention specific talks and people that
will be at the event.

* If your company cares about or relies on any Apache technology, encourage
them to sponsor the event and/or send an employee to the event. Remind them
that it's about more than just the technical content - they will get to
have first-hand contact with the people that develop the software, and
become part of that community, with the possibility to participate in
shaping the future of that product. If there's a spark of interest in
sponsorship, have them get in touch with me - - and we'll
take it from there.

* Follow and retweet the @apachecon account.
