On a few conferences, I have specific questions.
LinuxCon Japan - who is going there next year? Will there be openSUSE peeps staffing a booth? Anyone up for that?
I myself didn't attend LinuxCon Japan last year, but as far as I know, there wasn't any booth by FLOSS communities at the site last year and there won't be this year, neither. It is a session-oriented event and since it costs $300 ($75 for students) to attend it, there will be only few consumers and end users (most attendees are core developers and business persons).
So, if you are going to attend this event next year, there might be 2 options:
Novell will sponsor the event and you are going to have a talk session as one of the Novell employees by using reserved time frame for sponsors. e.g. http://events.linuxfoundation.org/2010/linuxcon-japan/kroah-hartman http://events.linuxfoundation.org/2010/linuxcon-japan/bottomley
Apply for the session as community manager of openSUSE project aside from Novell.
I'm not sure whether I will be able to attend the event next year or not ATM, but I'd like to be there and help you any way I can. ;-)
# I've filled some stuff about LinuxCon Japan in on the spreadsheet.
Thank you very much for your input. Frankly, I'm not a big fan of events asking (a lot of) money for entry so I have to think about it... Thanks to the offer of helping, I might call you out on that ;-)
Hey I am willing to go anywhere. Just let me know where.
Start with the openSUSE conference ;-)
But seriously, that's cool of course but I can hardly ask you to fly to Japan for a conference. Would be a bit expensive for you and I can't cover the costs for that either...
