View Full Version : 2012 Pentaho Community Gathering

It's been an honor to organize PCM11 in Rome and I had great fun doing so. There were 2 downsides to the organization part which I would like to list out, so we can improve next year.

The first is/was that I was faced with picking up PCM organization in a location that I'm not living in and that I only know because some family lives nearby. As such I had a somewhat limited choice of options.
Secondly I was asked to pick up the organization fairly late, making it even more of a challenge.

To avoid a similar situation for next PCM organizers, I would suggest that the locations we put up for vote, are only based on location proposals backed up by some one who is willing to take care of the organization.

I suggest we use this thread to capture any proposals and do the usual voting somewhere around february/march.

So, my suggestion is that, anyone who's willing to take up PCM12 in a location they know well enough, post their proposals over here in the coming months.

What about an american location for PCM12? :)

It's been said before, there is plenty of scope for both an American AND a European meet.. There's no reason why there can't be both!

Hi All,

Hoping to attend an event this year...

U.S. based locations:

New York
San Francisco
Both have good public transportation and easy airport access

Atlanta (can be hot in the summer though)

Those would be my picks.

Hope to see you this year,

Perhaps there should be 2 threads. One for a possible USA meetup this year, and one for the European meetup ( which will happen regardless of any USA meet I assume? )

As for the Europe meet, i'm in :) Just let me know when and where...

The Dutch crew will be happy to host #PCM12 in Amsterdam this year, and if there's a US meetup in NY I seriously consider attending ;-)

How about Portland, OR (the beautiful Northwest) in July? Make it adjacent or overlapping with OSCON 2012. http://www.oscon.com/oscon2012

Ok, so for the European meetup, after much discussion on twitter, it seems a supported location list comes down to:

1. Amsterdam (Jos can help organise)
2. Edinburgh (Harris)
3. Seville (@ajandradem (https://twitter.com/#!/ajandradem))
4. Greece (Not sure where, Athens or possibly Thessaloniki? @arapidhs (https://twitter.com/#!/arapidhs))

location and date ?

03-16-2012, 05:30 AM
someone needs to arrange a vote and a deadline to decide the location!
Date will be roughly late sept time.

Amsterdam looking likely :)

Location in Amsterdam looking likely as the Red Hat :)


Time for a call for Talks I think!

I'd be interested in attending.

We have a confirmed, location and date. 29th September, details of the venue can be found on the wiki page here:

Hopefully we'll have a formal registration page soon, and we'll do a call for talks as well.

Dont miss it! there's no better way to get the inside track on Pentaho, the event is very technical, No sales! Aimed squarely at community members!
