Re: [opnfv-tsc] Please Read: Possible Date Change for the June Developer and Testing Forum

MORTON, ALFRED C (AL) <acm@...>

Hi Heather,


Thanks for this alternate-week suggestion.


One possible conflict came to mind: June 22-25 is the week after most

US primary and secondary schools have closed, and many families

probably planned some form of vacation before Summer activities

start, like camps and (shudder) Summer School. Of course, all

scheduling of travel and Summer activities may be revised to

comply with social distancing guidelines. But post-school vacations

may be the main reason that this week was largely un-scheduled.


It would be good to hear from those who actually have this

conflict – it doesn’t apply to me or my family.

Subject: [opnfv-tsc] Please Read: Possible Date Change for the June Developer and Testing Forum


Technical Communities,


During TAC discussion this morning, there was provisional consensus to move the developer event to June 22-25 from its original date of June 1-4.


The reasoning behind this is threefold: 1) the OpenStack virtual  PTG will now take place the week of June 1-4 and minimizing overlap with that activity would be preferable; 2) June 1 is a public holiday throughout much of Europe; 3) it gives us more time for planning. 


Obviously doing date changes mid-stream has the possibility to be disruptive (and why I'm normally fairly resistant to doing it), but the week of June 22 has been identified as one without other conflicts (as far as we know), and the folks on the TAC meeting this morning were unanimous in finding this date preferable. Avoiding logistics conflict with OpenStack definitely seems like a compelling reason to consider changing since there is a great deal of overlap between our technical communities.


We did, however, want to make sure that the technical participants feel comfortable with this change before we made it final. 


If anyone has any strong concerns or issue with this, please let us know ASAP, since if we do proceed with the earlier date, we need to get the pieces in place quite soon. We also want to get registration open as soon as possible, and we obviously need official dates to make that happen.
