Hi, I'm ____ and I'm a member of the Event Team for the upcoming Contributor Summit in San Diego, on November 18th. I wanted to make sure that your SIG/WG knew about it, because there are several things we'd like you to participate in.
First, we're looking for Session and Workshop submissions for pre-programmed sessions. These are sessions for three of the rooms that will be submitted and picked in advance; we're looking not just for presentations, but for discussions, and hands-on workshops or code reviews. Submit them through this form, before September 9th:
We need your SIG/WG to send some folks to talk to contributors about participating in your SIG/WG. Please have your group's representative(s) complete the form below so that we can send them additional details closer to the date.
Registration for current contributors will open September 5th.
Yes, we will have an unconference track as well. Talks for that will be submitted just prior to the Summit and selected there.
No, there won't be SIG F2F sessions at this Summit. Instead, we are asking SIGs to submit sessions with a specific topic or topics, aimed at engaging folks who aren't normally SIG members. For example, SIG Cluster Lifecycle has submitted "Cluster Lifecycle Roadmap" instead of an F2F. There will probably be standard SIG F2Fs in Amsterdam, depending on what the Amsterdam Event Team decides.
Instead of "We need your SIG/WG to send a couple of folks to that to meet new contributors and/or chat with contributors about their issues/PRs; can you sign up?"
Maybe something like this?
