Subject [GT2006] Cocoon GetTogether 2006 (Oct 2-4, Amsterdam): how about some Forrest, Lenya and Daisy?
Date Tue, 04 Jul 2006 13:12:53 GMT
Hi Forrest, Lenya and Daisy folks,

With the risk of spamming the same bunch of people over an over again across several lists
(sorry for the insane crosspost!), I'm forwarding this email in an effort to reach as much
Cocoonistas as I can :) Spread the word!

This year's Cocoon conference will be held again in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, from Monday,
October 2nd, until Wednesday, October 4th.

We need your ideas! What would YOU like to see at this year's Cocoon GetTogether???

The GetTogether event runs as a series of presentations on different aspects of Apache Cocoon.
Several short tracks will give you insight on all aspects of Cocoon, from generator to serializer
and from CForms to AJAX, packed with with real success stories and best practices. There's
plenty of time for interaction and probing questions. Whether you're a Cocoon developer or
user, either expert, beginner, or only curious, this event is for you. Want to know more about
the technology and the people behind it? Come join us at this year's Cocoon GetTogether in

But first, we'd like to hear everyone's ideas on WHAT you would really, *really* like to see:

* Which parts of Cocoon would you like to see demonstrated?
* Which bits of code would you like to see projected on a huge screen in big,
  *big* letters, with the author right next to it, explaining you exactly how and *why*
  he wrote it like that?
* Which parts of Cocoon do you find utterly complicated and would you like to get some help
* What would you like your boss to get demonstrated? (convince him to use Cocoon :-) )
* ...maybe you've got some Cocoon wizardry yourself to share at the Lightning Lottery Talks?

Everyone is free to send in a list of subjects for which he or she would travel all the way
to Amsterdam.
There's no program yet. This year's program is up to YOU - so send in those ideas!

Here's a couple of them to get you started:

- Success stories (why someone chose Cocoon, for what, what was great and what not?)
- Comparison of Cocoon with other web frameworks
- Why should I upgrade to 2.2?
- Some howto's / best practices for
    - Configuration
    - Using Spring
    - Building Cocoon
- 10 Reasons to use Cocoon
- A "What's new in 2.2 and how to use it track" with different topics, 5 to 10min per topic.
- What's up for Cocoon 3.0?
- The Funky Cocoon AJAX tour (with lots of samples!)
- A short (!!) introduction to OSGi (what's all that fuzz about?!)
- Practical case studies, where people show how they are using Cocoon, the high-level
  architecture of their apps, what they're integrating Cocoon with, what makes their app
  unique, etc. We could to 20+10 (20 minutes prez, 10 minutes questions) slots for this,
  and have at least 4 or 6 of them during the day.

We're all using Cocoon in wildly different ways, which is one of its major strengths - let's
show this at this year's GetTogether!
