Subject OSCON Pre-conference Session for Apache OpenOFfice
Date Fri, 06 Jul 2012 17:57:15 GMT
There are preconference activities on June 16-17 preceding OSCON in Portland, Oregon.

See <>.

The Tuesday, 9am Programming & Productivity Mini BarCamp is offered for Apache OpenOfice
(incubatng) and Apache DeltaSpike (incubating).  It might be a good place for ODF Toolkit
(incubating) interest as well.

To attract interest and encourage new participants, it is requested that brief summaries be
added to the Wiki at the appropriate topic.  The event will be publicized.

It might be useful to indicate somewhere who from the project will be there for the Mini BarCamp
and related Hackathons and Roundtables.

 - Dennis

PS: It is interesting that the term "BarCamp" has taken on a life of its own.  It was originally
the designation of a camp-out that was *not* FooCamp, the invitational Friends of O'Reilly
camp-out that was held annually.

We have created a wiki page[1] to help organize and track the information for Apache@OSCON.
 If you already mailed me your project information, I added it to the wiki.  If not, we have
granted everyone write privileges, so please add it to the page ASAP.  

Also note that there is a section for any after-hours or secondary events being held by your

The sooner everyone can get their information in the page, the sooner press@ can begin helping
us market via twitter, blog and press release.
