This thread is about having a CentOS Dojo at MySQL Conf on Monday 31

At KB's suggestion, we reached out to the folks at Percona, who are
willing to sponsor a CentOS Dojo on the Monday before this year's
MySQL Conference in Santa Clara, CA. Since this is near me, I
volunteered to help organize and run the event.

What we need still:

* Speakers to present user stories, tutorials, how-tos, and other
technical content related to CentOS Linux in some way; bonus if it's
database and/or MySQL-and-derivatives focused.
* Co-organizers.
* Event staff.
* Publicity, publicity, publicity.

What we have so far:

* One room that seats 75 persons in a classroom formation.
* Lunch accommodations (details to work out.)
* Video kit for recording and streaming.

There will also be some booth presence at MySQL Conference, which I'll
bring under another thread. For booth staff we can get free attendance
to the conference, there is going to be a promo code for a discount for
other people.

What's next?

What's our best solution for registering people?

What details do we need to still capture at this stage?
