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

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.
