Who Should Attend
DEVELOPERS / OPERATORS / END USERS
Developers, operators and end users who are involved or hoping to get involved in an OpenInfra project contributor group that decided to meet at the PTG.
NOTE: If you are hoping to get involved with a particular team, check with them to make sure they are planning to do onboarding before you book travel.
Leaders from teams, SIGs, working groups that decide not to meet at the PTG should attend to represent the views of their group at the event.
Who Should Not Attend
The event is optimized for engaged community members that are involved in one of the various teams working on one of the projects supported by the OpenInfra Foundation (workgroups, development teams, SIGs…). If you're brand new to OpenInfra projects, you might want to attend the OpenInfra Summit event instead, which features presentations, forum sessions (designed to get wider community feedback) and on-boarding sessions.
The event is not the occasion to sell goods or to propose jobs to the attendees -- hiring managers and product vendors will therefore probably feel out of place.
Usually this event is not for new contributors; however, we are including the possibility for teams to do project onboarding as a part of the PTG. That being said, not all teams will be participating, only those that want to.
How can this benefit my organization?
Our community is global. This creates challenges that cannot easily be solved using asynchronous, low-bandwidth communication tools. Getting technical community members to meet in-person regularly is essential to build the amount of shared understandings and trust that is necessary to successfully cooperate. Participants to the event are therefore a lot more productive and efficient the rest of the year.
PTG’s are organized in cost-effective transportation hubs in order to minimize travel expense. At the same time, we aim to maximize the ability of contributors to work through their workgroup objectives in an environment that is focused towards work and productivity.
