Although that's a local event (Paris, France, but not necessarily in
French only), I think it's good to talk about it here.

A few of us have been invited to hold one keynote or two and
participate in workshops at the Web Workers Camp 3 in La Cantine in
Paris (April 16-17) - http://lanyrd.com/2011/webworkerscamp3/ .

Web Workers Camp is a barcamp (see
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BarCamp), focusing on new platforms for
applications, software, people, on the technology side (see
http://barcamp.org/w/page/36708944/WebWorkersCamp3). It's fun, it's
highly interactive, topics that gets discussed are those that gets
defined and approved in place by the very attending people - and you
get way more than what you bring there.

A few of us = currently ennael, rtp, boklm, dams and me (rda). We will
present briefly the project origins, goals and differences to/from
other projects. But we will too focus on the project as an elegant and
efficient platform for developers and experimentation (that's one of
the goals).

I know it's a bit of a short notice (2 weeks) but we would like to
welcome a few people to talk on specifics about Mageia packaging,
development, plans; especially regarding stuff that matters to
developers (system, apps, Web or other) - think of python, perl, php,
ruby, nosql & async stuff for instance - even open hardware related
tools/interfacing, why not.

So if you think you have something to say in some of these (being
packager, heavy hacker/developer in one of these topics) and you may
come by in this dates, please raise your hand! Note that there will be
workshops too, that's a bit of a barcamp.

(to be evaluated case-by-case and stamped by the board - it's an
option that Mageia.Org may help with accomodation/transportation)

This is a great opportunity to reach some more people and get the word
out about the project and enlight expectations.

Any joiners?
