Subject Re: Podling forward needed: Tracks for ApacheCon Europe - Project Proposals needed
Date Wed, 20 Jun 2012 12:02:47 GMT
Hi Nick et al,

While I haven't discussed this yet with the (P)PMCs also on the CC, I'd like see 
if we can come up with enough interest and proposals for a track like

    "Social & Mobile Apps & Activities".

We've got quite a few active Apache projects and podlings which IMO have a 
overlapping and shared community and purpose: Shindig, Rave, Wookie (podling), 
Wave (podling), Cordova (callback podling), and maybe even more.

I've included all the PMCs of these projects on the CC so to invite them to 
participate and provide feedback if they would be interested in this, flesh this 
out in more detail and/or have ideas otherwise.

I personally am definitely willing to help and if needed chair such a track, as 
well as provide a proposal for at least one talk, probably about Rave :)

Regards, Ate
