Apache Conferences, BarCamps, and MeetUps
ApacheCon: Tomorrow's Software, Today. Schedule announced!
The Apache Software Foundation, in conjunction with our friends at the Linux Foundation events team, are proud to announce the schedule for ApacheCon North America - http://events.linuxfoundation.org/events/apachecon-north-america/program/schedule - and Apache Big Data North America - http://events.linuxfoundation.org/events/apache-big-data-north-america/program/schedule
Since 1999, The Apache Software Foundation (ASF) has been recognized as a leading source for Open Source software and tools that meet the demand for interoperable, adaptable, and sustainable solutions.
The all-volunteer ASF develops, stewards, and incubates dozens of enterprise-grade Open Source projects that power mission-critical applications in financial services, aerospace, publishing, government, healthcare, research, infrastructure, and more. From Abdera to ZooKeeper, the ASF's reliable, community-driven software continues to grow dramatically across many categories, including Cloud, IoT and Edge Computing, Artificial Intelligence and Deep Learning, Mobile, and Big Data, where the Apache Hadoop ecosystem dominates the marketplace.
Today, many of the ASF’s 300+ projects serve as the backbone for some of the world’s most visible and widely used applications in Big Data (Cassandra, Hadoop, Spark); Cloud (CouchDB, CloudStack, Mesos); Search and CMS (Derby, Jackrabbit, Lucene/Solr); DevOps and Build Management (Ant, Buildr, Maven); Web Frameworks (Flex, OFBiz, Struts); Servers (HTTP Web Server, Tomcat, Traffic Server); among others.
Come to ApacheCon to learn about tomorrow's software, today. Find out what's coming next out of the Apache Incubator that will change the world again. Meet the people that make it happen, and get in on the ground floor of the next wave of innovation.
ApacheCon North America and ApacheCon Big Data will be held at the Miami Intercontinental, May 16th through 18th, 2017.
Come early for the Apache Traffic Server and Apache Traffic Control Summit. ATS and ATC are the workhorses behind some of the largest websites in the world. The summit will be happening on Sunday, May 14, and May 15, before the main conference. Find out details about this event at http://events.linuxfoundation.org/events/apachecon-north-america/extend-the-experience/ats-summit
And on Monday, May 15, we'll be holding the BarCampApache event, a full-day, unconference style event, where many of the ideas behind Apache projects have been hatched in the past. Details are at http://events.linuxfoundation.org/events/apachecon-north-america/extend-the-experience/barcamp
Early bird pricing for ApacheCon ends on Sunday, so register today to save $200. Register for ApacheCon North America at http://events.linuxfoundation.org/events/apachecon-north-america/attend/register- or for Apache Big Data at http://events.linuxfoundation.org/events/apache-big-data-north-america/attend/register- But note that a ticket for the one also gives you full access to the other event.

What are you working on at ApacheCon?
The biggest benefit of ApacheCon is getting together with the members of your community. While much of this is social, it's also an opportunity to collaborate in person on the code.
We will have a open collaboration space, with network and power, and tables for your project to gather around to work. Signs will be available to indicate what project you're working on, so that people will know which table to join.
Having a clear set of objectives is key to getting everyone focused around the same thing, and is also a great way to attract new members to your community. When they can see what you'll be working on, and give it some thought ahead of time, new community members feel more welcome to participate once they get there.
To this end, we encourage you to talk about this in your community, and then add your thoughts to the public etherpad so that we can help you promote your project's objectives. This further encourages cross pollination between projects, as we start to see what one another is working on.

ApacheCon North America 2016, happening now in Vancouver
This week we're holding the Apache: Big Data and ApacheCon North America events in Vancouver, BC, Canada. Although the event is still on-going, I wanted to mention a few highlights of the event for those of you who missed it.
Attendance has grown 51% over our event in Austin last year, with 675 Apache enthusiasts in attendance.
During the event, we announced ApacheCon EU 2016, to be held November 14-18 in Seville (Sevilla) Spain. We will have a website, with registration and CFP, up within the next few days. Mark the date in your calendar, and plan to attend. It's going to be even better than lst year. If your company wishes to sponsor ApacheCon, we'd be glad to send you a prospectus for the event. If you're wondering why you should sponsor, listen to some of this year's sponsors for their reasons.
We're considering several locations for ApacheCon North America 2017. Watch apachecon.com for updates!
ApacheCon is the place to come to learn what Apache projects are doing, as well as a place for projects to come to build stronger project communities, as well as forge the bonds between projects.
ApacheCon is 18 years old, and we've held 32 events in North America, Europe, and Asia. We bring together 350+ projects across many technology spaces, and developers from more than 100 countries who collaborate on these projects
Companies who sponsor ApacheCon gain visibility with the developers who make these projects happen, as well as having a chance to showcase their technologies to our user community. Sponsors of past events include Apple, Google, Microsoft, Red Hat, Canonical. HP, IBM, and many, many others.
Topics covered include big data, community governance, geospatial computation, web services, and many, many more, as well as an extensive "hallway track", where communities and relationships are forged and strengthened.
