ApacheCon @Home 2020 was a huge success

Last week we held the first virtual Apache conference, ApacheCon @Home 2020. We're still digging through all of the analytics from the event, but we can already tell you that, by any metric, the event was an overwhelming success.

We had 5745 registrations for the event from more than 150 countries, spanning every time zone, with the virtual format making content available to attendees who would never have attended an in-person ApacheCon, with 83% of poll responders indicating this was their first ApacheCon ever.

We had presentations in Hindi, Mandarin, and Spanish, for the first time at an ApacheCon, with online presentation giving us access to many speakers who had never spoken at ApacheCon before.

Content was presented in 25 tracks, including Big Data, Groovy, Pulsar, httpd, Community, Incubator, cTAKES, Geospatial, and a first-ever dedicated Mandarin language track. And we had brilliant keynotes from Sheng Wu, Thomas Huang, Camille Fournier, and Edmon Begoli.

Another highlight of the event was the Bug Bash hosted by one of our sponsors, Muse.dev. Seven teams competed to fix bugs, across several Apache projects, identified by the Muse.dev code analysis tool. Congratulations to TeamThread who won with an impressive 610 points!

If you attended the event (or even if you didn't!), you can still purchase your ApacheCon @Home 2020 event tshirt.

ApacheCon was made possible by our sponsors. Platinum sponsors were Instaclustr, Red Hat, DataStax, VMWare, Apple, Amazon, IBM, and Imply. Gold sponsors were OpenLogic, Cerner, and RX-M. Bronze sponsors were Codethink, US Postgresql Association, and Muse.dev. A huge thank you to them!

If you missed the event, don't worry - we are even now processing the hundreds of hours of videos from the event, and they will appear on our YouTube channel over the coming days. Follow us on twitter to find out when the videos become available.

Announcing ApacheCon @Home 2020

The ApacheCon Planners and the Apache Software Foundation are pleased to announce that ApacheCon @Home will be held online, September 29th through October 1st, 2020. We’ll be featuring content from dozens of our projects, as well as content about community, how Apache works, business models around Apache software, the legal aspects of open source, and many other topics.

Full details about the event, and registration, is available at https://apachecon.com/acah2020 

Due to the confusion around how and where this event was going to be held, and in order to open up to presenters from around the world who may previously have been unable or unwilling to travel, we’ve reopened the Call For Presentations until July 13th. Submit your talks today at https://acna2020.jamhosted.net/

We hope to see you at the event!
