Looking at the Debian wiki http://wiki.debian.org/DebianEventsChemnitzerLinuxTage2010 and http://www.debian.org/events/ I envy them very much how well they are organized going to events and how many events they participate. I'd like to reach a similar level of organization and surpass their activity by a lot.
One of the hard things with YAPC - I guess - is that almost every year a new group of people are organizing them so the experience does not get passed well. Let's build this events group around people who participate in several events and thus teach each other how to get organized! Let's start by capturing what we learned from FOSDEM and collect them on the wiki page http://www.perlfoundation.org/perl5/index.cgi?events I also created two separate pages specifically for FOSDEM 2010 http://www.perlfoundation.org/perl5/index.cgi?events_2010_FOSDEM and CeBit 2010: http://www.perlfoundation.org/perl5/index.cgi?events_2010_cebit Dirk, Erik, Dave, Salve ------------------------------ and if other people who were on FOSDEM are around, please update the FOSDEM page with the relevant items that will be useful to whoever organizes the next Perl stand on FOSDEM and on other events. Rich, -------- please describe the source of the items and let's try to save the art-work you created in a place that is accessible by anyone who wants to reuse them in case you are not available. BTW I think we need a new batch of tuits and postcards but we should discuss this with Renee before to see how we allocate our budget. Renee, --------- let's try to fill the CeBit page with the list of missing items and see how we can fill the void. Please contact all the people who you know that might participate on CeBit and ask them when could they be at the stand? Which day or which half day? Everyone else. Please help us getting organized for CeBit and take some of the design and production work from us. If you know any other organization that might want to finance the giveaways items, let's talk to see how this can be turned into reality? regards Gabor http://szabgab.com/
