Subject ANNOUNCE: Lucene/Solr @ ApacheCon (Denver, April 7-9)
Date Fri, 28 Feb 2014 00:52:15 GMT

(cross posted, please keep any replies to general@lucene)

ApacheCon Denver is coming up and registration is currently open.

In addition to a solid 3 day track of Lucene & Solr related talks, there 
are also some post confrence events that are open to anyone even if you 
don't attend the confrence proper...

* Registration

* Schedule of Sessions

* Fast Feather Track

(Monday afternoon. This is a series of short talks, ~15 minutes in length, 
covering what's new / interesting / exciting / recently changed etc. Tell 
us about a new project, a new feature, recent updates, tools we should 
know etc. A great chance for new groups and new speakers to experience 
giving an ApacheCon talk in a short form and friendly environment, plus 
welcoming of old hands too!)

* Hackathon

(Every day. There's space for dedicated project hackathons welcoming 
of new people, as well as the usual adhoc gatherings. Please sign up if you'll 
be doing something you'd like new people to join in with, so attendees can find 
out what's available.)

* Lightning Talks

(Tuesday night. As ever, we look forward to people entertaining, 
informing, challenging and inspiring us, with the odd bit of music or 
silliness no doubt too! You have your 5 minutes... Serious technical talks 
may be better in the Fast Feather Track.  Jim will collect submissions 
before and during the event.)

* BarCamp

(Thursday. Don't dash off on Wednesday after the last talk, stay to the 
Thursday and join the unconfernce! Sessions typically range from about the 
ASF and how it works, through new projects, cool tools, handy processes, 
things from outside we can learn from, things from inside we can learn 
from, what's hot in the incubator, and what's hot in our host city! With 
30 minute sessions, you'll never be bored.)

* Project summits

(Thursday and Friday. There's still some space for projects who want to do 
their own mini summits, uninterrupted hackathons, talks and more.)
