Some of you were in the Jenkins Scalability Summit last year [1,2,3]. 
I'm trying to see if we can do a similar one this year back to back with 
JUC Bay Area.

To recap, the idea of the scalability summit was to have a small number 
of serious active users/developers in the room, to deep dive into 
Jenkins. The last year the event was themed around scalability and was 
run in part like an unconference, where the attendees have collectively 
decided on the agenda for the day.

We could keep the same theme this year, but someone suggested to me that 
since workflow is a big focus this year, maybe that could be the theme. 
I can easily picture Jesse and I presenting technical details of various 
parts of the workflow plugin, people sharing and collecting real-world 
use cases, brainstorming around enhancements / roadmap, maybe even a 
workshop of getting extensions implemented.

Is something like this interesting for you? Is it worth doing?

(Another suggestion was to just turn it into a full-blown unconference. 
Namely, don't have any particular theme, and allow anyone who wants to 
come to come. We'll just let attendees dictate the topics. The only 
problem I have with this is that we need a lot bigger venue, which is 
hard to come by, so unless somebody local in the bay area shows up and 
sponsors a suitable venue, I don't think this is happening.)
