OK, you asked for it.  :-)

- The best and worst moments in Tomcat history.
Specific examples.  Memorable events.  Could be just for the year so the same topic with different
content could be presented next year, like an episode.

- Tomcat vision roadmap.
History and plans for the future.  Respond to RFC and bug reports.  Other things?

- A day in the life of a Tomcat developer/contributor.
Typical vs ideal vs worst.  Humor.  Specific examples.  Multiple presenters.

Subject: TomcatCon @ ApacheCon


There is the opportunity (if we can pull it together as a community) to run a dedicated Tomcat
conference alongside ApacheCon NA 2017. The dates are May 16 to 18.

The call for papers closes on Feb 11 so we have around a month to get organised. We'll also
need to convince the conference organisers that a) there is a demand for this and b) we have
a plan.

Getting the right content is going to be critical to success. I've been thinking about this
for a while and I think we can identify the right content if as many folks as possible on
this list answer the following

We have up to three days and potentially multiple tracks so even if you think you have a niche
requirement, please speak up. We typically have a number of Tomcat committers speaking at
ApacheCon so finding someone to cover a particular topic shouldn't be too tricky. Equally,
if you have a topic you could present on that you think others would find useful, speak up.

Do feel free to add your +1 if someone else mentions a topic your are interested first. Having
an idea of how popular the topics are would also be helpful.

Also, we don't have to stick to the standard "Sit and listen to someone present for 40 mins"
format. Discussions, workshops, hackathons are all possible.

Some topic ideas to get the ball rolling.

Hands-on workshop: Configuring TLS with Apache Tomcat Reverse Proxying to Apache Tomcat Load-balancing
with Apache Tomcat Clustering  with Apache Tomcat Tomcat Clinic (like the users list but with
everyone in the same room)
