Nemoers, Sounds like a good opportunity. Since John's giving a talk at ApacheCon, maybe he can also participate in the Shark Tank?
Cheers, Gon ---------- Forwarded message --------- From: Roman Shaposhnik <r...@apache.org> Date: Thu, Aug 15, 2019 at 5:45 AM Subject: Showcase your project at ApacheCON at a Podling's Shark Tank To: general <gene...@incubator.apache.org>, Roman Shaposhnik <r...@apache.org > Hi Podlings! in less than a month we're going to have our first ApacheCON this year -- the one in Las Vegas. In about two month there will be one more in Berlin. These are not your regular ApacheCONs -- these are 20th Anniversary of ASF ApacehCONs! In other words, these are not to be missed! And even if your talk didn't get accepted -- you still get an opportunity to highlight your project to, what's likely going to be the biggest audience attending. Here's how: if you (or any community member who's passionate about your project) are going to be at either of those ApacheCONs consider signing up for Podling's Shark Tank events: https://www.apachecon.com/acna19/s/#/scheduledEvent/1038 https://aceu19.apachecon.com/session/podlings-shark-tank Each project presenting will get ~10 min for the pitch and ~5 min of panel grilling them on all sorts of things. Kind of like this ;-) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wmenN7NEdBc You've got nothing to lose (in fact, the opposite: you're likely to get a prize!) and you will get a chance to receive feedback that might actually help you grow your community and ultimately graduate to the TLP status. And! Given our awesome panel of judges: * Myrle Krantz * Justin Mclean * Craig Russel * Shane Curcuru We guarantee this to be a fun and useful event for your community! We will be tracking signups over here: https://wiki.apache.org/apachecon/ACNA19PodlingSharkTank https://wiki.apache.org/apachecon/ACEU19PodlingSharkTank but for now: SIMPLY REPLY TO THIS EMAIL if you're interested. It is first come, first serve -- so don't delay -- sign up today! Thanks, Roman. -- Byung-Gon Chun
