Re: Beam Summits!

Great stuff, thanks for the overview, Austin.

For EU, there are things to say for both Stockholm and Berlin, but I think it makes sense to do it on the back of another conference (larger chance of people being in town with the same interest). I like Thomas comment - we will attract more people from the US if we don't let it conflict with the big events there. +1 for doing it around the time of Berlin Buzzwords.

For Asia, I'd imagine Singapore would be an option as well. I'll reach out to some people that are based there to get a grasp on the size of the community there.

I think for EU there is a proposal to have it next to Berlin Buzzwords in June. That would provide better spacing and avoid conflict with ApacheCon.

How about Beam Summit in Berlin on Sep 6 immediately following Flink Forward Berlin on the previous 2 days.

Same may be for Asia also following Flink Forward Asia where and whenever it happens.

Hi All,

I really enjoyed Beam Summit in London (Thanks Matthias!), and there was much enthusiasm for continuations.  We had selected that location in a large part due to the growing community there, and we have users in a variety of locations.  In our 2019 calendar, shared in the past weeks, 3 Summits are tentatively slotted for this year.  Wanting to start running this by the group to get input.

* Beam Summit NA, in San Francisco, approx 3 April 2019 (following Flink Forward).  I can organize.
* Beam Summit Europe, in Stockholm, this was the runner up in voting falling behind London.  Or perhaps Berlin?  October-ish 2019
* Beam Summit Asia, in Tokyo ??

What are general thoughts on locations/dates?

Looking forward to convening in person soon.
