Subject ApacheCon 2016: Podling Shark Tank
Date Wed, 03 May 2017 02:48:45 GMT
OK it looks like I was able to get into the roster for Podling Shark Tank.

I got this email below today, it explains what I'm suppose to do.
This is my first time to ApacheCon, so this means I have to do something to
make a mark for OpenWhisk first's year at ApacheCon

If you have ideas on convincing attendees to give the project a try, or
what points to highlight  or what funny stunt I can do please let me know
in public dev list or private, I'm just starting to brainstorm if I should
bring a guitar and card boards :-)

Tue 5/16, 4:40pm - 5:30pm

Now that I scared you into action ;-) Read on:

What is Podling Shark Tank I hear you asking? It is as though
Lightning Talks and US TV show Shark Tank fell in love and
had a beautiful baby. It is a show filled with deep technical insight,
off the wall questions and it goes something like this:

On a logistics side all of you are going to get 10 minutes for
talking and 5 minutes of being grilled by the panel of judges.

Slides CAN be used but only if they are done in PDF and
given to me no later than end of day 5/15. You WILL NOT
be able to use your own laptop or do demos.

Finally, here's what I would suggested as objectives for your pitch:
     0. Make it funny AND insightful
     1. Position your technology as something groundbreaking
     2. Position your community as the best place on earth to be
     3. Convince ASF graybeards that you're ready to graduate
     4. Convince attendees to start hacking on your project immediately
