We had our first go at this with the "miniSummit" at SCaLE earlier this year. I would say we were reasonably successful.
yes. I couldn't attend fro few days syn problems, but could go there on Sunday and was glad to meet some old chaps :-))
We ended up in a similar situation as with oSC organization, a bus factor of one. Also it being the first go around there were many rough edges.
apart being in an expensive Hilton Hotel, can you elaborate?
Bus factor of one meaning Drew Adams worked like crazy to pull things together. THANK YOU Drew.
For the booth there was help but all the pre-event stuff pretty much was hanging off Drew.
For a long time issues like "do we accept our own talks", room allocation, time and date for the openSUSE dedicated room etc. were all up in the air. This made it difficult for planning and getting speakers lined up. All issues that can be fixed with experience and doing more of these events.
A "formalization" of the process, which would also undoubtedly benefit oSC organization would certainly help.
I would say the concept of the miniSummit is great. It provides a very good opportunity to reach out and present the openSUSE project. I am not so certain about a miniSUmmit providing a good opportunity to cover the charter for oSC, all or parts of it.
Thus, in a way the very basic question remains. Do we believe that the charter of oSC, as I proclaimed it to be, is mostly on the right track? If the answer is yes and we do not meet our own expectations, I proclaim that to be the case, should oSC continue past oSC16? Is it worth re-thinking what oSC is all about and create a new charter in the hopes of being more successful in finding people that are willing to organize the event and will not be burned out when they are done? ....a stream of many open questions...
