Subject Re: Drill Summit/Conference Proposal
Date Wed, 14 Jun 2017 18:32:38 GMT
I like the idea of co-hosting a conference. ApacheCon in particular is a good venue, and they
explicitly encourage sub-conferences (there are  “Big Data” and “IoT” tracks, and
this year there were sub-conferences for Tomcat and CloudStack). DrillCon was part of ApacheCon,
people could attend a whole day of Drill talks, or they they could go to talks about other
Apache projects in the larger conference, and connect with Apache members.

Also, the conference is professionally organized, at a large hotel with good facilities.

Unfortunately ApacheCon just happened (it was in Miami in May); but it’s something to consider
next year.
