Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Fwd: Re: FOSDEM 2016 - Call for Participation
Date Mon, 05 Oct 2015 16:03:31 GMT

just wanted to let you guys know that I've just submitted
a proposal for Big Data and Data Science devroom for
FOSDEM. ASF is the org that can make it a really successfull
DEVROOM and last year the feedback was asking for
something like this big time.

Not sure how to increase our chances of being accepted,
but would love any feedback on that.
