SPDX at Eclipsecon 2012 - BOF Session
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
So, here is the summary of what we could do at EclipseCon 2012 – tx to Mike Milinkovich and Anne Jacko of Eclipse.
a) We have a tentative timeslot for 7 pm on Wednesday 28th March, right after an Eclipse reception.
b) They need to know the numbers- how many people we expect to attend the BOF- so they can get the right room for us. The cut-off is 15th January.
c) Once we have an indication of the BOF participants, then we can socialize it (through spdx channels/tweets/blogs). Also Ian, of Eclipse marketing, will help us spread the word through Eclipse blogs, newsletters etc (thank you Ian).
Questions I need help with:
1) What’s the best way to see how many will be interested in attending the BOF? A poll through spdxxxxx@fossbazaar? Any other channels we could use?
2) BOF session title? How about “What’s Happening with SPDX”? (in fact better to expand SPDX in case there are still souls out there that do not know). A better, more catchy title, would help!

Mahshad — Are you going to be there?
I think this is a good opportunity to create awareness in Eclipse community. A BOF is a great idea. Any other takers?

Thank you Mahshad for organizing the BoF at EclipseCon.
I think the goal of this BoF is to gather as many people as possible,
to gain more visibility for SPDX... and bring more companies in!
If you are interested, Antelink can help trigger the discussion, by
presenting briefly what SPDX is, making a few demos of the tools
and explaining how it can be integrated into the development process.
Will be possible to show some slides in the room?
About the title, I would go with the following, so that everyone feels interested:
"Software Package Data Exchange (SPDX): what it is, and what is happening with it."
Thanks and best regards
