As our community continuously grows, we are currently having contributors from various institutions including both industry and academia. We usually use the discussion forum here to post RFCs and exchange ideas which has been quite efficient. However, it might be helpful to further broaden the community through regular meetups as people who are interested in TVM could participate and talk in person. We want to propose regular community meetups in the Bay Area. Here are some initial proposals, but you are very welcome to comment or post any other alternatives.
How: we propose to organize the meetup by volunteers in the community and coordinate through the discuss forum. The signup could be done through meetup.com. Any one in the community is welcomed to volunteer to host the meeting.
when and where: the time and location could be proposed by the volunteers, but we would like to suggest it is held quarterly.
All these activities will be acted under the ASF guidance. We will archive the meetups and post the summary so that they are also accessible to other people who cannot attend in person.
Any ideas or comments are highly appreciated:)
