Subject TomcatCon @ ApacheCon
Date Mon, 09 Jan 2017 11:57:58 GMT

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

"What topic(s) need to be covered in a Tomcat conference to make it as
easy as possible to get your employer to pay for you to attend?"

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

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)

I look forward to hearing your topic ideas.
