[Input Requested] OpenJS Collaborator Summit


Jory Burson
 

Hi there,

First, we're eager to get your project's session proposals for the Collaborator Summit. This year, we're organizing sessions across 4 tracks:
  • New Contributor: sessions tailored to newcomers
  • Cross-Project: sessions for topics relevant to multiple projects
  • Project: sessions for specific projects and their teams
  • Ad Hoc: unscheduled, 'unconference' sessions or conversations
We're also looking to support projects that want to have a project-specific Collaborator Summit track. Head on over to the /summit repo and let us know what you want to do!

Second, We're looking to get input from projects about alternative plans for the Collaborator Summit. As you're aware, the COVID-19 pandemic is disrupting travel across the globe and putting our June events plans into question. The Summit's plan of action is tied to OpenJS World, and we encourage you to monitor the event's Novel Coronavirus Update on the event website.

If OpenJS World goes virtual, it would be held on the same dates, June 23-24 for the conference and June 25-26 for the Collab Summit. The summit planning team has identified a few paths we could take, but before we proceed with any of them we want to hear from all the projects. The Foundation events team are actively testing different online platforms for remote or remote-augmented experiences - but we've also heard some feedback that other approaches may be preferred.

Please take a minute and let us know: if we can't hold Collab Summit in person, what would you prefer? Would you and your community still be interested in participating in an online-first experience, or would you want to plan something different?

We welcome any and all ideas, input and feedback - we're gonna figure this out together!

Best,
Jory on behalf of the Collab Summit planning team - Manil, Waleed, Christian, Robin, Joe, Ruy, Wes & many more

ps - please feel free to forward to other leaders in your community who may be interested in sharing their thoughts.

I think it may be optimistic to plan a large event for June. 
Perhaps rescheduling to a later date?
Virtual conference is also a good idea. Won't be the same, but will give many people something to look forward to as they sit in isolation.
