[OpenDaylight Marketing] The First OpenDaylight Summit


Phil Robb
 

Hello again members of the ODP marketing group and the TSC:

It was brought to my attention that the mail below only went to the Marketing Group, and not the TSC.  So that we can keep everyone on the same thread, I'm resending this email to everyone.  My apologies to the Marketing group for the duplicate, but if you have comments to make, please reply-all to this message so that everyone stays in sync.

Thanks, and I look forward to your thoughts on the date/location of the first OpenDaylight Summit.

Phil.

Hi Don:

Not colliding with the Mobile World Conference makes great sense.  Thanks for pointing this out.

TSC and Marketing group members, looking at potential dates where venues are available, our second choice is the week of February 3rd, in San Francisco.  Would this be a reasonable time/place for our first OpenDaylight Summit?

Please respond with your thoughts.

Thanks,

Phil.

Phil and All,
The idea of a summit is a great one.  For now my concern is Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, and is also Feb 24 - 27.  Ericsson will be much more able to support the summit after the MWC show is done.  But, of course there are probably many scheduling challenges, but I think the MWC show is a big one for networking marketing teams.

Hello TSC and Marketing Group:

We have begun to discuss when the first OpenDaylight Summit will be in a variety of meetings over the past couple of months.  

In general, the consensus thus far has been to have the first Summit in February or March of next year.  This will be shortly after the first release at the end of 2013 as the community begins preparations for Release 2.  Given the list of available venues and existing SDN/Networking events, the week of February 24th in the Bay area seems to be the most promising.

If this is the date/location we are targeting, we need to lock it down and secure a specific venue as quickly as possible.   There are a limited number of venues available and they are being snapped up constantly.

To that end, I would like to request we discuss this via email and close on it within the next week.

Please weigh in with your thoughts.

Thanks,

Phil.
