The Apache® Software Foundation Announces Program Highlights for ApacheCon™ Europe

Momentum Builds for Official Global Conference Series of the World's largest Open Source Foundation

Wakefield, MA and Berlin, Germany —24 September 2019— The Apache® Software Foundation (ASF), the all-volunteer developers, stewards, and incubators of more than 350 Open Source projects and initiatives, announced today highlights for the upcoming European edition of ApacheCon™, the ASF’s official global conference series. 

Taking place 22-24 October 2019 at the Kulturbrauerei in Berlin, Germany, ApacheCon is the primary gathering of the collective Apache community worldwide, drawing hundreds of attendees from more than 60 countries to learn about Open Source development "The Apache Way" in a deliberately intimate, collaborative, vendor-neutral environment. Highlights include:

  • "Tomorrow's Technology Today" — first-hand insight on Open Source technologies in Big Data, Community, IoT, Machine Learning, Servers, and more, independent of business interests, corporate biases, or sales pitches;

  • Unparallelled educational opportunities — ApacheCon content is selected entirely by Apache projects and their communities, enabling participants at all levels to learn about the latest developments from Apache Airflow, Beam, Calcite, Cassandra, Commons, cTAKES, Flink, Hadoop, Hive, HTTP Server, Ignite, James, Kafka, Mynewt, NiFi, PLC4X, Spark, Tika, Tomcat, and numerous innovations in the Apache Incubator, such as Hivemall, IoTDB, Training, and more;

  • Keynotes and plenary sessions —
Thomas Gageik, Director Digital Business Solutions at the European Commission: "Open Source Software at European Commission's Informatics Directorate"
Miguel Gamiño, Executive Vice President, Global Cities at MasterCard: "City Possible: Addressing Shared Urban Challenges By Harnessing the Super-Power of Collaboration"
Nanjala Nyabola, writer, independent researcher and political analyst: "Where Do Broken Rights Go? A View from the Global South on the Limits of Techno-solutionism"
Ken Coar, Mark Cox, Lars Eilebrecht, and Dirk-Willem van Gulik, ASF co-Founders: "Founders' Panel"
David Nalley, ASF Executive Vice President: "State of the Feather"
  • Community sessions and Evening events — Hackathon, BarCamp, Movie Night screening of "FUD", Lightning Talks, ASF 20th Anniversary welcome reception, and more, including filming of "Trillions and Trillions Served", the documentary on the ASF;

  • Community Partnerships — connect with communities from the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Informatics (DG DIGIT), EU Free and Open Source Software Auditing Community, Flink Forward, the Open Source Business Alliance, Open Source Design, and more. The Open Source Design community will be holding a dedicated track during the event, as well as a free post-conference usability workshop on 25 October;

  • Event Sponsorship — ApacheCon sponsors who showcase their products, people, and community support benefit by extending their brands to the greater Apache community, engaging with industry influencers, and connecting with potential future collaborators. Many sponsors consider ApacheCon to be an invaluable resource for recruiting top Open Source talent. ApacheCon attendees include individual developers and users, Fortune 500 companies, start-ups, educators, consultants, community managers, Open Source enthusiasts, influencers, and industry analysts.

    ApacheCon Sponsors include: Google Cloud, eBay Tech Berlin, Amazon, RedHat,  Instaclustr, and Berlin Partner, among others. To become an ApacheCon Sponsor, visit https://s.apache.org/2019-BERApacheConProspectus

The Open Geospatial Consortium leads the Geospatial Track at ApacheCon North America 2019

Call for Presentations outlining Apache projects that include geospatial data and processing closes 13 May.

The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) is pleased to announce that, after a successful geospatial track at last year's ApacheCon North America, OGC will once again lead a conference track concerning geospatial data and processing at ApacheCon NA 2019, to be held in Las Vegas on 9-12 September. Developers are invited to propose to present, and interested organizations are welcome to sponsor the track.

"We are delighted to collaborate once again with the Open Geospatial Consortium on the Geospatial Track at ApacheCon," said Rich Bowen, ASF Vice President Conferences and Event Chair for ApacheCon North America. "OGC's involvement reflects both the interest and participation in a growing number of Apache projects. We are happy to make ApacheCon the home for meaningful, community-curated content for the greater geospatial community."

The single-day Geospatial Track at ApacheCon NA 2019 will occur on Monday, 9 September, and provide an opportunity for participants to learn about, discuss, and see examples of the implementation of geospatial information across Apache projects.

Multiple Apache projects include geospatial information and processing. The Geospatial Track will consider a range of geospatial implementations ranging from location as an attribute, to projects that perform spatial analytics, including handling of coordinate reference systems (CRSs), geometries, and arrays. Emphasis is invited on the use of open standards, including OGC's recently updated CRS Well Known Text, version 2. The Geospatial Track will foster discussions that will reduce development effort through the reuse and increased quality of geospatial information handling.

2019 marks the third time OGC has lead the Geospatial Track at ApacheCon NA, with previous tracks being run in 2016 and 2018.

Discussions about this track are invited on geospatial@apache.org. 

To submit a presentation for the ApacheCon NA 2019 Geospatial Track, follow the instructions on the ApacheCon NA 2019 Call For Presentations page, and select 'Geospatial software' as your topic on the submission form. The Call for Presentations will close the morning of 13 May.

About OGC
The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) is an international consortium of more than 525 companies, government agencies, research organizations, and universities participating in a consensus process to develop publicly available geospatial standards. OGC standards support interoperable solutions that 'geo-enable' the Web, wireless and location-based services, and mainstream IT. OGC standards empower technology developers to make geospatial information and services accessible and useful within any application that needs to be geospatially enabled. Visit the OGC Website at http://www.opengeospatial.org/
