ApacheCon North America 2018: Announcements and updates

With ApacheCon North America 2018 now less than 2 months out, we want to draw your attention to a few highlights:

The full schedule is available on the website, and features talks from dozens of our projects, and from all across the technology universe. From IoT to containers to cloud to desktop to personal finance, Apache remains in the forefront of technology innovation.

We're beginning to put together our BOF (Birds of a Feather) schedule. If your project or community wants to plan an after-hours gathering, we provide the space and you provide the content. We have 4 rooms on 3 evenings. Get in touch with the ApacheCon Planners with your BoF title, description, and preferred date/time to get on the schedule.

As usual, we're planning a BarCamp (all day Monday), a keysigning, and the ever-popular lighting talks. We'll be posting new details every day, so keep watching.

Registration is still open, and the hotel block is open until August 24th, so don't delay. Register today at ApacheCon.com.

Finally, if you want to get involved, or have any more questions, there's a number of ways to get in touch with us.

Join one of our mailing lists. Email the lead planners directly. Follow us on Twitter

See you in Montreal!

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!
