Subject Looking for additional mentor for Edgent with community growth ideas/focus
Date Mon, 15 May 2017 19:31:59 GMT
The Edgent community has just about all the pieces in place, great well 
designed reliable software for analytics at the edge, great Apache Way 
attitude and  understanding and open development from the committers and 
ppmc members, successful releases and good documentation of the release 
process, very welcoming to anyone who shows interest in joining the 
community, no sticky legal or IP issues that I anticipate.

The only significant problem I see at this point is growing the size and 
diversity of the user and development community.  Our last new committer 
was a year ago and just saw only two new subscribers to the dev list in 
our last reporting period.

I think it is a good time to bring on a new mentor for Edgent to help 
kick start community growth.   Any interest?

At Apachecon this week there are a couple of talks about Edgent.  Please 
attend if you are there and spread the word to anyone who might have 
interest in either mentoring or getting involved in the Edgent community 
or trying Edgent.  Please forward to anyone who might be interested.

Tuesday May 16 2:30 pm:
     * Video Analytics at the Edge: Fun with Apache Edgent, OpenCV and a
       Raspberry Pi - Dale LaBossiere and William Marshall, ppmc members and
       committers for Edgent.

Wednesday May 17: 12:15pm:
     * Having fun with Raspberry(s) and Apache Projects - Jean-Frederic 

Even if you can't come on as a mentor, I would most appreciate advice on 
what the current mentors can do. I can imagine lots of applications, but 
I don't have a lot of industry contacts now and will soon retire from my 
day job and will have even fewer.  I will probably have some time to 
yell, "Rah, Rah Edgent!" , but not sure my captive audience (my little 
brown dog)  has real interest or contacts either.



About Edgent

Apache Edgent is a programming model and micro-kernel style runtime that 
can be embedded in gateways and small footprint edge devices enabling 
local, real-time, analytics on the continuous streams of data coming 
from equipment, vehicles, systems, appliances, devices and sensors of 
all kinds (for example, Raspberry Pis or smart phones). Working in 
conjunction with centralized analytic systems, Apache Edgent provides 
efficient and timely analytics across the whole IoT ecosystem: from the 
center to the edge.
