FOSS4G UK Online

Barry Rowlingson
On twitter today:

"""
It’s #FOSS4G2020 time We are planning a one day online event at the end of May/beginning of June. To get things started we need some speakers and demos so please submit your ideas at https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSe_1Hs7RGp1sx7sPAB2KMBanDW36ELkxHJE8nl5_3iMnVivjg/viewform Lots more news to follow, please spread the word
"""

not seen any discussion of this on the mailing list, and no names attached to the tweet or on the google submission form.

 Who is running this? This isn't just my curiosity, but also I think an event with names behind it looks a lot more human than something anonymous. Plus we know who to thank and support.

 Why wasn't it mentioned here on the mailing list? Should things that use the FOSS4G UK branding have some committee discussion first? Did that happen?

 All that aside, it looks like a great idea!

Barry

Hi Barry,

This is an official OSGeo:UK event. We discussed it as a committee,
and basically wanted to move forward quickly with the CfP as the
timescales are quite short. You're right, we probably should have
advertised it on the list prior to posting on twitter- sorry for
getting things the wrong way round.

For information, the OSGeoUK twitter account is managed by the
committee, so tweets from that account should be considered
"official".

Jo

I was a tad upset by the "This might be a state secret ;)" response to asking who was behind the OSGeoUK twitter account!

Have you figured out what platform to run the conference on?

Oops, sorry about that! I think now we understand that the original
CfP announcement was not handled as well as we might have liked, it
makes sense that our response to your tweet wasn't the best.

We're evaluating online platforms in a spreadsheet- if you've got good
or bad experiences of any then do let us know and we'll add them to
the list.

All the best

Jo
