The Apache Software Foundation Announces Program, Speaker Lineup, Sponsors for ApacheCon Europe

The ApacheCon Europe Planning team today announced the program, speaker lineup, and sponsors for ApacheCon, the official conference of The Apache Software Foundation.

ApacheCon returns to Europe 5-8 November 2012 at the Rhein-Neckar-Arena in Sinsheim, Germany, attracting Open Source users, developers, gurus, students, novices, and enthusiasts to the newly-introduced "Community Edition" of ApacheCon --a smaller, less formal event aimed at a more technically-oriented audience, and featuring an array of sessions focused on Apache projects and initiatives, plus MeetUps, FastFeather and Community Tracks, Hackathon, and BarCamp. This is an ideal opportunity for technologists currently developing Apache-based solutions, as well as those interested in committing code to an Apache project, contributing to the Apache Incubator, or enhancing their Open Source products and community practices.

ApacheCon Europe Community Edition is organized and run by the Apache community; all content for ApacheCon has been selected by Apache Project Management Committees. 13 tracks explore key Open Source applications and issues, from Big Data and Smart Search to Cloud and Infrastructure, and include:

Apache Daily –-the tools, frameworks, and components used on a daily basis, such as Apache Logging, Apache Maven, Apache Ant, Apache Buildr, Apache Commons, and more.

ApacheEE –-all about Java Enterprise projects at the ASF, including Apache OpenWebBeans, Apache OpenEJB, Apache TomEE, Apache Tomcat, Apache MyFaces, Apache DeltaSpike, Apache BVal, and Apache OpenJPA.

Big Data [sponsored by Hortonworks] –-the ASF projects at the forefront of high-volume performance, innovation, and analytics, such as Apache Cassandra, Apache Hadoop, Apache HBase, Apache Hive, Apache Kafka, Apache Mahout, Apache Pig, Apache Whirr, Apache ZooKeeper and friends.

Camel in Action –-common problems, solutions, and best practices with Apache Camel.

Cloud [sponsored by Citrix and HP] –-many Apache initiatives play a key role in powering today's Cloud, from Apache Libcloud and Deltacloud, to Apache Whirr, Accumulo, and Cloudstack, to Apache Hadoop + friends.

Community –-if you've ever wanted to know how to become involved with the ASF --from becoming a Committer to bringing a project to the Apache Incubator to learning how the ASF works-- or are seeking information on how Open Source can benefit your organization or ways to improve your Open Source community experience, this is the place to roll up sleeves and get started.

Linked Data –-adopting, linking, and interoperating the Web of Data using the latest in annotating, processing, extracting, reasoning, and semantics with Apache Jena, Apache Any23 (Incubating), Apache Clerezza (Incubating), and Apache Stanbol (Incubating).

Lucene/Solr and Friends [co-located with Lucene Eurocon; sponsored by LucidWorks] –-the latest in search and analytics with Apache Lucene/Solr, Apache Tika, Apache ManifoldCF and more.

NoSQL Database –-use cases and latest developments in dovetailing Big Data with Apache Cassandra, Apache HBase, Apache CouchDB, Apache Accumulo, and more.

OFBiz –-the ins and outs of Apache OFBiz (Open For Business), the Open Source Enterprise Resource Planning suite of applications that integrate and automate many business processes, including catalogue management, eCommerce, CRM, warehousing, manufacturing, project management, HR functionality, FiCo, and more.

Thank you for the full list of presentations. I see, the topic of personalized search attracts the growing interest. Is there any information how to become a speaker on the conference? Our local company has an interesting experience, I suppose, for an international community...
