ApacheCon North America 2020, project participation

2019-10-01 Thread Rich Bowen
Hi, folks,

(Note: You're receiving this email because you're on the dev@ list for
one or more Apache Software Foundation projects.)

For ApacheCon North America 2019, we asked projects to participate in
the creation of project/topic specific tracks. This was very successful,
with about 15 projects stepping up to curate the content for their
track/summit/event.

We need to know if you're going to do the same for 2020. This informs
how large a venue we book for the event, how long the event runs, and
many other considerations.

If you intend to participate again in 2020, we need to hear from you on
the plann...@apachecon.com mailing list. This is not a firm commitment,
but we need to know if you're, say, 75% confident that you'll be
participating.

And, no, we do not have any details at all, but assume that it will be
in roughly the same calendar space as this year's event, ie, somewhere
in the August-October timeframe.

Thanks.

4 Apache Events in 2019: DC Roadshow soon; next up Chicago, Las Vegas, and Berlin!

2019-03-06 Thread Rich Bowen
Dear Apache Enthusiast,

(You’re receiving this because you are subscribed to one or more user
mailing lists for an Apache Software Foundation project.)

TL;DR:
 * Apache Roadshow DC is in 3 weeks. Register now at
https://apachecon.com/usroadshowdc19/
 * Registration for Apache Roadshow Chicago is open.
http://apachecon.com/chiroadshow19
 * The CFP for ApacheCon North America is now open.
https://apachecon.com/acna19
 * Save the date: ApacheCon Europe will be held in Berlin, October 22nd
through 24th.  https://apachecon.com/aceu19


Registration is open for two Apache Roadshows; these are smaller events
with a more focused program and regional community engagement:

Our Roadshow event in Washington DC takes place in under three weeks, on
March 25th. We’ll be hosting a day-long event at the Fairfax campus of
George Mason University. The roadshow is a full day of technical talks
(two tracks) and an open source job fair featuring AWS, Bloomberg, dito,
GridGain, Linode, and Security University. More details about the
program, the job fair, and to register, visit
https://apachecon.com/usroadshowdc19/

Apache Roadshow Chicago will be held May 13-14th at a number of venues
in Chicago’s Logan Square neighborhood. This event will feature sessions
in AdTech, FinTech and Insurance, startups, “Made in Chicago”, Project
Shark Tank (innovations from the Apache Incubator), community diversity,
and more. It’s a great way to learn about various Apache projects “at
work” while playing at a brewery, a beercade, and a neighborhood bar.
Sign up today at https://www.apachecon.com/chiroadshow19/

We’re delighted to announce that the Call for Presentations (CFP) is now
open for ApacheCon North America in Las Vegas, September 9-13th! As the
official conference series of the ASF, ApacheCon North America will
feature over a dozen Apache project summits, including Cassandra,
Cloudstack, Tomcat, Traffic Control, and more. We’re looking for talks
in a wide variety of categories -- anything related to ASF projects and
the Apache development process. The CFP closes at midnight on May 26th.
In addition, the ASF will be celebrating its 20th Anniversary during the
event. For more details and to submit a proposal for the CFP, visit
https://apachecon.com/acna19/ . Registration will be opening soon.

Be sure to mark your calendars for ApacheCon Europe, which will be held
in Berlin, October 22-24th at the KulturBrauerei, a landmark of Berlin's
industrial history. In addition to innovative content from our projects,
we are collaborating with the Open Source Design community
(https://opensourcedesign.net/) to offer a track on design this year.
The CFP and registration will open soon at https://apachecon.com/aceu19/ .

Sponsorship opportunities are available for all events, with details
listed on each event’s site at http://apachecon.com/.

We look forward to seeing you!

We are pleased to announce our schedule for ApacheCon North America 
2018. ApacheCon will be held September 23-27 at the Montreal Marriott 
Chateau Champlain in Montreal, Canada.


Registration is open! The early bird rate of $575 lasts until July 21, 
at which time it goes up to $800. And the room block at the Marriott 
($225 CAD per night, including wifi) closes on August 24th.


We will be featuring more than 100 sessions on Apache projects. The 
schedule is now online at https://apachecon.com/acna18/


The schedule includes full tracks of content from Cloudstack[1], 
Tomcat[2], and our GeoSpatial community[3].


We will have 4 keynote speakers, two of whom are Apache members, and two

speaking about how Amplio uses technology to educate and improve the 
quality of life of people living in very difficult parts of the 
world[4]. And Apache Fineract VP Myrle Krantz will speak about how Open 
Source banking is helping the global fight against poverty[5].


Then, on Wednesday, we’ll hear from Bridget Kromhout, Principal Cloud

ApacheCon will also feature old favorites like the Lightning Talks, the

ApacheCon CFP closing soon (11 February)

2017-01-18 Thread Rich Bowen
Hello, fellow Apache enthusiast. Thanks for your participation, and
interest in, the projects of the Apache Software Foundation.

I wanted to remind you that the Call For Papers (CFP) for ApacheCon
North America, and Apache: Big Data North America, closes in less than a
month. If you've been putting it off because there was lots of time
left, it's time to dig for that inspiration and get those talk proposals in.

It's also time to discuss with your developer and user community whether
there's a track of talks that you might want to propose, so that you
have more complete coverage of your project than a talk or two.

We're looking for talks directly, and indirectly, related to projects at
the Apache Software Foundation. These can be anything from in-depth
technical discussions of the projects you work with, to talks about
community, documentation, legal issues, marketing, and so on. We're also
very interested in talks about projects and services built on top of
Apache projects, and case studies of how you use Apache projects to
solve real-world problems.

We are particularly interested in presentations from Apache projects
either in the Incubator, or recently graduated. ApacheCon is where
people come to find out what technology they'll be using this time next
year.

It's important, in all of this conversation, to keep the interests of the 
*users* first. This project is about producing software for the public good, 
not about winning some contest, or nursing our hurt feelings. We owe it to the 
users to forgive and forget actual and perceived insults, and move on with our 
lives. Otherwise, what the heck are we doing here?

ApacheCon Seville CFP closes September 9th

2016-08-30 Thread Rich Bowen
It's traditional. We wait for the last minute to get our talk proposals
in for conferences.

Well, the last minute has arrived. The CFP for ApacheCon Seville closes
on September 9th, which is less than 2 weeks away. It's time to get your
talks in, so that we can make this the best ApacheCon yet.

It's also time to discuss with your developer and user community whether
there's a track of talks that you might want to propose, so that you
have more complete coverage of your project than a talk or two.

For Apache Big Data, the relevant URLs are:

For ApacheCon Europe, the relevant URLs are:
Event details: http://events.linuxfoundation.org/events/apachecon-europe
CFP: http://events.linuxfoundation.org/events/apachecon-europe/program/cfp

This year, we'll be reviewing papers "blind" - that is, looking at the
abstracts without knowing who the speaker is. This has been shown to
eliminate the "me and my buddies" nature of many tech conferences,
producing more diversity, and more new speakers. So make sure your
abstracts clearly explain what you'll be talking about.

[ANNOUNCE] CFP open for ApacheCon North America 2016

2015-11-25 Thread Rich Bowen
Community growth starts by talking with those interested in your
project. ApacheCon North America is coming, are you?

We are delighted to announce that the Call For Presentations (CFP) is
now open for ApacheCon North America. You can submit your proposed
sessions at
http://events.linuxfoundation.org/events/apache-big-data-north-america/program/cfp
for big data talks and
http://events.linuxfoundation.org/events/apachecon-north-america/program/cfp
for all other topics.

ApacheCon North America will be held in Vancouver, Canada, May 9-13th
2016. ApacheCon has been running every year since 2000, and is the place
to build your project communities.

While we will consider individual talks we prefer to see related
sessions that are likely to draw users and community members. When
submitting your talk work with your project community and with related
communities to come up with a full program that will walk attendees
through the basics and on into mastery of your project in example use
cases. Content that introduces what's new in your latest release is also
of particular interest, especially when it builds upon existing well
know application models. The goal should be to showcase your project in
ways that will attract participants and encourage engagement in your
community, Please remember to involve your whole project community (user
and dev lists) when building content. This is your chance to create a
project specific event within the broader ApacheCon conference.

Content at ApacheCon North America will be cross-promoted as
mini-conferences, such as ApacheCon Big Data, and ApacheCon Mobile, so
be sure to indicate which larger category your proposed sessions fit into.

Finally, please plan to attend ApacheCon, even if you're not proposing a
talk. The biggest value of the event is community building, and we count
on you to make it a place where your project community is likely to
congregate, not just for the technical content in sessions, but for
hackathons, project summits, and good old fashioned face-to-face networking.

That's one version of events. Another version of events is this.
http://pages.citebite.com/e7v0f3m9sder

"Shuttleworth has a fairly serious disagreement with how the
OpenOffice.org/LibreOffice split came about. He said that Sun made a $100
million "gift" to the community when it opened up the OpenOffice code. But
a "radical faction" made the lives of the OpenOffice developers "hell" by
refusing to contribute code under the Sun agreement. That eventually led to
the split, but furthermore led Oracle to finally decide to stop OpenOffice
development and lay off 100 employees."

That's different from "deciding it was not worth the effort".

Why the FUD on a dev list, anyway?


It's not FUD. It's a link to an article.

What would be awesome is if someone would write a counterpoint, which is 
non-confrontational, non-rageful, non-hateful, and non-reactionary, but 
just calmly presenting the reasons why someone might want to stay on 
OpenOffice.


Refuting the article on this list, where we all already know the story, 
is a good start, but if you could turn it into an article that's less 
political, more practical (features, community, timelines, and so on), 
that would actually help our cause. The person asking the original 
question doesn't care about politics, hurt feelings, and "radical 
factions", I guarantee. They want to know which product is better for 
them, now, and in the long term.


Thanks.

  From an AOO PMC Member,

 I have compiled a high-level traffic analysis of discussion activity on
 the OpenOffice PMC private@ oo.a.o list.  These are *statistics* and
 noisy ones at that.  I am looking for trends that are good-enough at this
 level of precision.  It is in the nature of private@ that message
 content
 and even the topics must be held in confidence.

 This report of gross metrics is for the community's appraisal of current
 state and later progress.  The movement of discussions to the community
 when the confidentiality requirements for PMC discussion do not apply
 should be seen in movements at this level.  Further reports over the
 course
 of the year may provide an useful indicator.

 OVERALL PRIVATE MESSAGE TRAFFIC

 This is a breakdown of the traffic in the 212 days from January through
 July, 2015, by role of the sender.

  2015 | Private List Messages
 thru July | PMC  ASF  Other   All

Totals  1145  182 31  1358
   Senders22   23 2368
Per sender  52.0 7.9 1.3 20.0
 (average)
   Per day   5.4  0.90.1   6.4

 Of all the messages sent,

84% are by members of the PMC,
16% are by other ASF participants, and
17% are by others.

 The ASF participants include members of Apache Infrastructure, Officers
 of
 the ASF, and other ASF Members and staff who make posts to the private
 list.  The Other senders are members of the public and non-PMC Apache
 OpenOffice contributors that raise questions or provide information to
 the
 PMC via private@.

 For the 1145 messages from the 22 PMC members who posted to the list so
 far this year,

49% of the messages are from the three
PMC members who were the most vocal
in the studied period.
75% of the messages are from the seven
most vocal.
91% were from the most vocal 11 of the
22 PMC members that posted.

 I confess to being one of those top three posters.


 NUMBER OF SUBJECTS AND AMOUNT OF DISCUSSION

 A review of the same message archives, for January - July, 2015, tallied

   168 subjects discussed across 1341 posts,
   about 0.8 new topics per day.
 The variance of 17 from the first tally
   is negligible and will not be corrected.
   The raw data is available for auditing
   by the PMC.

   8.0 is the average number of messages on a
   single subject

5% is the portion of the overall messages
   used in the longest thread, one with
   73 messages

   50% of the messages are on the 20 longest
   discussion threads.  The shortest thread
   in that group has 18 messages.

   75% of the messages are on the 50 longest
   discussions.  The shortest threads in
   that group have 8 messages.

   90% of the messages are on the 84 longest
   discussions (i.e., half of the
   threads).  The shortest threads in
   that group have 4 messages each.

   The remaining 10% consists of 84 threads
   having 3, 2, and 1 messages each.

 This does not speak to the quality or the necessity of these messages and
 any particular thread.  The PMC has detailed supporting data.

 I would discourage any reasoning based on aggregate message counts.
 Every +1 on a PMC member VOTE counts as a message, for example.  The
 thing to look carefully at is what is being discussed on the private
 list.  A lot of discussion bearing on topics important to the
 direction of the project is bad, bad, bad.  Healthy projects have
 quiet private@ lists because pretty much everything they need to
 talk about they can and do talk about on the public lists.  But
 committer / PMC votes, security issues and occasional random legal
 or must-be-private people-related things pop up and cause traffic
 spikes when they do.  So I would not draw conclusions or do
 comparisons based on message counts.  Better to compare what is
 actually being discussed.

Absolutely. And I completely agree that aoo has too much traffic on private@.
I'd just really like to see if it's as skewed as I perceive it is,
statistically speaking.

no problem you did a good job and I don't see any problem, you did not

preview and testing if your build env is working as expected and can be
used for a Windows release build. Please continue your tests and keep us
informed. I'm would be happy if I don't have to prepare windows builds.



I'm finding this conversation perplexing, and, no doubt, I lack some 
back-story.


Surely it's wonderful that someone is producing binaries for folks to 
try out, right? Why would we want them to be deleted, and not publicized?


Binaries are not (as has been discussed DOZENS of times) official 
releases. And anyone is free to take our code and push out binaries.


Can someone explain to me what the problem is here? We should be 
encouraging the work that Michal is doing, celebrating it, tweeting it, 
and encouraging everyone and their grandmothers to try out this new build.

I would think we would welcome the publicity.

 However, all the problems can be easily solved with coordination and
communication (e.g., offering binaries only from Apache infra systems like
people@a.o, agreeing on file nameing to differentiate clearly from release

Let me correct my clumsy wording.  Here's another try.

I think a full week of discussion with all known candidates
can occur by having the discussion end on August 16, when
nominations close, or 7 days after the last accepted-/self-
nomination, whichever is later.

Another way to say this is

Discussion will end 7 days after the last accepted-/self-
Nomination, and no earlier than August 16.

Since August 16 is already on the books, that would not change, but we
might find some slack post-August 16.

Good point concerning closing nominations with time remaining for
discussion of the candidates prior to any [VOTE].  Perhaps that can just be
7 days from the last accepted-/self-nomination or August 16, whichever is
later.

I think it is prudent to find some slack in the process, in case there is
anything unexpected.

It looks like two mileposts are the same, with August 16 (17 days from

they are only partly the same. new candidates ends august 16th, giving the
PMC tine to discuss.



I suggest that the Discussion ends August 23 be removed.


If you do that candidates entering the last days have hardly time to be
discussed.




I suggest that we can then have Voting ends backed up to August 28, 12
days from August 16.

ok with me, if there is PMC consensus.

Let's forward this to the OpenOffice dev list too (in CC) and see if 
it is a yes! Volunteers? Templates to be refreshed are here:


http://templates.openoffice.org/en/search?search_api_views_fulltext=apacheconsort_by=createdsort_order=ASC 



ApacheCon EU is in Budapest, Hungary, in case someone doesn't know 
(old templates often used the country colors, but this is not a must).


Awesome.

The image on the website is white on a transparent background, which 
poses difficulties. :-) Feel free to tweak that if you need to.

Thanks, Andrea.  I appreciate you sharing this with the OpenOffice
dev list.  As it turns out, LF is taking care of creating the
speaker templates.


I dont hope it will be mandatory to use the LF templates, but merely a 
recommendation.


No, we've never made it a requirement to use a particular template. 
Creativity is a good thing. Having a standard template saves some folks 
some work, to be sure. However, lots of folks use other tools to write 
their presentations, and can't use the template anyway.

I'm forwarding the request below to the OpenOffice dev list. It
would be
nice to have a slides template for the coming ApacheCon in Denver
(deadline for template: February 14).

For ApacheCon 2012 and 2013 templates were created by volunteeers on
this (OpenOffice dev) list and are available at

http://templates.openoffice.org/en/template/apachecon-europe-2012-presentation
http://templates.openoffice.org/en/template/apachecon-north-amaerica-2013

Any volunteers?

Regards,
   Andrea.
