Subject RE: [Discuss] CloudStack Collab Summit 2013
Date Tue, 26 Feb 2013 20:22:05 GMT
Mark - missed this thread last week (vacation), sorry to post so late

I agree with the 2 x events. I see Chips point, but those airfares across the Atlantic  add
up for folks and I think 2 will give us a greater number of people & community value overall.
I think a good % of people will come to both  and we shouldn't be scared of overlapping content

I'm happy to lend as much time/effort as needed to help get the Europe  event rolling and
I'm sure the other ShapeBlue guys will. I'll also discuss at our next European User group
meetup (many of whom aren't on these lists)

I don't know how last years Collab was organised, but could this be something that the eurpoeans
(i.e.  myself, Seb, Donal, Hugo, Wido, etc  ) can have a more direct input on ?

Kind Regards

So to summarize the threadŠ

I think the collective opinion is that we should do a CloudStack Collab
Summit in EMEA this spring and since Hugo's got the resources to help plan
in Amersterdam I think we should let him take the lead for that and
Sebastien, Mohammed, Wido and the others that stepped up can help him.
I'll volunteer to find the funding once he has a proposed venue and some
costs and the PPMC and ConCom sign-off on the event.

Also unless we get objections we'll plan for a second summit in North
America in the fall and want to try to get that venue reserved it is very
hard to find a place on short timeframes. I'll work to get the funding in
place for that one too.

To Chip's question on is two summits too many,  I see a huge appetite for
people to come talk about CloudStack.I
think since all decisions are made on list it's not like you miss out by
not going to both or either it's just nice to put faces to IRC nicks/email

Anything else?
