ADVISORY: Communications received from organization impersonating ApacheCon team

Some ApacheCon sponsors and members of the greater Apache community have reported that they have been contacted by a company called Global Expo Travel that is alleging to be affiliated with ApacheCon.

They are claiming to be "handling the travel" for ApacheCon North America.

This statement is 100% false. We do not know anyone at Global Expo Travel and have not contracted this company to conduct any business on behalf of ApacheCon or The Apache Software Foundation in any capacity.

We will not tolerate spoofing or related fraudulent activity in any form.

In the event that you have received any telephone calls or emails from any organization other than the ASF (from @apache.org) or the ApacheCon conference producers
  • Virtual Inc. for ApacheCon North America
  • New Thinking/Plain Schwartz for ApacheCon Europe

... please notify us at planners(at)apachecon(dot)com. If available, please include the originating telephone number and/or full email headers and any message(s) if possible.

Any ApacheCon sponsor needing assistance is welcome to contact their respective Event Sponsor Ambassador, namely, Daniel Ruggeri for ApacheCon North America, and Sharan Foga for ApacheCon Europe.

We appreciate your vigilance and cooperation in helping keep our community protected from deceitful practices and malicious entities. We look forward to seeing you in Las Vegas and Berlin.

4 Apache Events in 2019: DC Roadshow soon; next up Chicago, Las Vegas, and Berlin!


Registration is open for two Apache Roadshows; these are smaller events with a more focused program and regional community engagement:

Our Roadshow event in Washington DC takes place in under three weeks, on March 25th. We’ll be hosting a day-long event at the Fairfax campus of George Mason University. The roadshow is a full day of technical talks (two tracks) and an open source job fair featuring AWS, Bloomberg, dito, GridGain, Linode, and Security University. More details about the program, the job fair, and to register, visit https://apachecon.com/usroadshowdc19/

Apache Roadshow Chicago will be held May 13-14th at a number of venues in Chicago’s Logan Square neighborhood. This event will feature sessions in AdTech, FinTech and Insurance, startups, “Made in Chicago”, Project Shark Tank (innovations from the Apache Incubator), community diversity, and more. It’s a great way to learn about various Apache projects “at work” while playing at a brewery, a beercade, and a neighborhood bar. Sign up today at https://www.apachecon.com/chiroadshow19/

We’re delighted to announce that the Call for Presentations (CFP) is now open for ApacheCon North America in Las Vegas, September 9-13th! As the official conference series of the ASF, ApacheCon North America will feature over a dozen Apache project summits, including Cassandra, Cloudstack, Tomcat, Traffic Control, and more. We’re looking for talks in a wide variety of categories -- anything related to ASF projects and the Apache development process. The CFP closes at midnight on May 12th. In addition, the ASF will be celebrating its 20th Anniversary during the event. For more details and to submit a proposal for the CFP, visit https://apachecon.com/acna19/ . Registration will be opening soon.  

Be sure to mark your calendars for ApacheCon Europe, which will be held in Berlin, October 22-24th at the KulturBrauerei, a landmark of Berlin's industrial history. In addition to innovative content from our projects, we are collaborating with the Open Source Design community (https://opensourcedesign.net/) to offer a track on design this year. The CFP and registration will open soon at https://apachecon.com/aceu19/ .

Sponsorship opportunities are available for all events, with details listed on each event’s site at http://apachecon.com/.

We look forward to seeing you!

Rich, for the ApacheCon Planners

ApacheCon North America 2018, schedule announced

We are pleased to announce our schedule for ApacheCon North America 2018. ApacheCon will be held September 23-27 at the Montreal Marriott Chateau Champlain in Montreal, Canada.

Registration is open! The early bird rate of $575 lasts until July 21, at which time it goes up to $800. And the room block at the Marriott ($225 CAD per night, including wifi) closes on August 24th.

We will be featuring more than 100 sessions on Apache projects. The schedule is now online at https://apachecon.com/acna18/

The schedule includes full tracks of content from Cloudstack, Tomcat, and our GeoSpatial community.

We will have 4 keynote speakers, two of whom are Apache members, and two from the wider community.

On Tuesday, Apache member and former board member Cliff Schmidt will be speaking about how Amplio uses technology to educate and improve the quality of life of people living in very difficult parts of the world. And Apache Fineract VP Myrle Krantz will speak about how Open Source banking is helping the global fight against poverty.

Then, on Wednesday, we’ll hear from Bridget Kromhout, Principal Cloud Developer Advocate from Microsoft, about the really hard problem in software - the people. And Euan McLeod, ‎VP VIPER at ‎Comcast will show us the many ways that Apache software delivers your favorite shows to your living room.

ApacheCon will also feature old favorites like the Lightning Talks, the Hackathon (running the duration of the event), PGP key signing, and lots of hallway-track time to get to know your project community better.

Follow us on Twitter, @ApacheCon, and join the discuss@apachecon.com mailing list (send email to discuss-subscribe@apachecon.com) to stay up to date with developments. And if your company wants to sponsor this event, get in touch at help@apachecon.com for opportunities that are still available.

See you in Montreal!
