SPDX at Eclipsecon 2012 - BOF Session


Samuel Langlois <samuel.langlois@...>
 

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

Samuel


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 throughspdxxxxx at fossbazaar <https://fossbazaar.org/mailman/listinfo/spdx-tech>? 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?

If so, would you be willing to organize the BOF?

The program for EclipseCon has already been finalized. But if anyone wanted to organize a meeting room or a BOF, that may still be possible.

Hi all

We have created a list of potential events where we would like to have a talk on SPDX.  We will create a few abstracts that anyone can use (or modify).  It would also be helpful to have talks about use cases from some of the end user members of SPDX.

If you are planning to be at one of these events (or an event that's not listed)  and would like to submit a talk on SPDX, please let Kim know kim.weins@....  We’ll try to coordinate so that we can cover as many events as possible.

This list is also available at http://www.spdx.org/wiki/events-2012
