Support Apache: #GivingTuesdayNow


Support The Apache Software Foundation (ASF) and help the world's largest Open Source foundation continue to provide $20B+ worth of software for the public good at 100% no cost.


Apache projects are helping millions of individuals and businesses struggling with the COVID-19 pandemic in numerous ways, including:

  1. Accessing one’s desktop remotely whilst working from home;

  1. Ordering, warehousing, picking, shipping, dispatching, and tracking critical supplies worldwide;

  1. Classifying and integrating 1.5B+ genetic data records;

  1. Storing, extracting, linking, and processing terabytes of electronic medical records across thousands of servers;

  1. Training large-scale, distributed deep learning libraries over clusters of hospital machines;

  1. Developing machine learning cardiovascular disease prediction models; and

  1. Supporting biobank research and real-time intensive care data analysis.


Your contribution helps ensure The Apache Software Foundation’s 350+ projects and initiatives remain accessible to all, absolutely free of charge. The not-for-profit ASF does not pay for development --all work on Apache projects is done by a volunteer community of more than 7,700+ Committers on six continents.

 

Donate today at https://donate.apache.org/


We thank you for your support during this unprecedented time.

#GivingTuesdayNow is a new global day of giving and unity taking place on 5 May 2020 as an emergency response to the unprecedented need caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The annual GivingTuesday movement takes place  on the first Tuesday following Thanksgiving in the United States, and is the second largest giving day of the year. (1 December 2020).

The Apache Software Foundation Welcomes 34 New Members

The Apache Software Foundation (ASF) welcomes the following new Members who were elected during the annual ASF Members' Meeting on 31 March - 2 April 2020:

John Andrunas, Paul Angus, Zaheda Bhorat, Timothy Chen, Andrea Cosentino, Adina Crainiceanu, Griselda Cuevas, Fokko Driesprong, PJ Fanning, Julian Feinauer, Drew Foulks, Von Gosling, Susan Hinrich, Clay Leeds, Swapnil M Mane, Frank McQuillan, Gian Merlino, Andrew Musselman, François Papon, Jerry Shao, Shao Feng Shi, Mohammad Asif Siddiqui, Neil Smith, Casey Stella, Jincheng Sun, Wangda Tan, Luca Toscano, Xiaorui Wang, Geertjan Wielenga, Sheng Wu, Kete Yang, Awasum Yannick, Duo Zhang, and Zhe Zhang.

The ASF incorporated in 1999 with a core membership of 21 individuals who oversaw the progress of the Apache HTTP Server. This group grew with Committers —developers who contributed code, patches, documentation, and other contributions, and were subsequently granted access by the Membership:

 - to "commit" or "write" (contribute) directly to the code repository;

 - the right to vote on community-related decisions; and

 - the ability propose an active user for Committership.


Those Committers who demonstrate merit in the Foundation's growth, evolution, and progress are nominated for ASF Membership by existing Members.

This election brings the total number of ASF Members to 813 today. Individuals elected as ASF Members legally serve as the "shareholders" of the Foundation https://www.apache.org/foundation/governance/members.html 

For more information on how the ASF works, visit http://www.apache.org/foundation/how-it-works.html , Apache Is Open https://blogs.apache.org/foundation/entry/apache-is-open , and Briefing: The Apache Way http://apache.org/theapacheway/
