The ASF launched 20 years ago with the oversight of a single project: the Apache HTTP Server, which became the world’s most popular Web server software. Today, the ASF is the world's largest Open Source foundation, developing, stewarding, and incubating more than 300 projects and initiatives. The collective efforts of 765 individual Members and 7,000+Committers steward 200+ Million lines of code, and provides $20B+ worth of software for the public good at 100% no cost.


ASF member Michael Wechner is the director of “FUD”, the 2004 Wyona Pictures documentary on Open Source. In 2010, at ApacheCon North America (the ASF's global conference series) in Oakland, initial filming began on “Trillions and Trillions Served”, the documentary on The Apache Software Foundation. 


Filming resumed in September 2019 during ApacheCon North America/Las Vegas, and will continue in October 2019  in Berlin during ApacheCon Europe. Join us!

"Community Over Code. Code Over Community"

A special project in collaboration with technologist and photographer Peter Adams in celebration of the 20th Anniversary of The Apache Software Foundation (ASF).

Growing from a single project to more than 300 projects and initiatives, the ASF is the world's largest Open Source foundation. The collective efforts of 765 individual Members and 7,000+Committers steward 200+ Million lines of code, and provides $20B+ worth of software for the public good at 100% no cost.

The ASF's unofficial tagline, "Community Over Code", underscores that a healthy community is far more important than good code, and is one of the cornerstones of "The Apache Way" of community-led development.

"Community Over Code" are group photographs of members of select Apache Project Management Committees (PMCs).

"Code Over Community" are individual portraits of select PMC members with their Project's code projected onto them. 

Photographed September 2019 in Las Vegas during ApacheCon, the ASF's global conference series.
