Announcing the release of "Trillions and Trillions Served"

We are pleased to announce the release of "Trillions and Trillions Served", the documentary feature on The Apache Software Foundation (ASF), the world’s largest Open Source foundation.

"'Trillions and Trillions Served' celebrates the diverse experiences from members of the Apache community from around the world," said Sally Khudairi, ASF Vice President Marketing & Publicity and Producer of "Trillions and Trillions Served". "The project is tribute to the innovation and passion that celebrates the ASF's incredible rise over the past 20 years. Watching our projects and their communities expand and thrive over the years has been exhilarating what a privilege to share our story with the world!"

Advancing its mission of providing software for the public good, the ASF's all-volunteer community grew from 21 original Members overseeing the development of the Apache HTTP Server to 813 individual Members, 206 Apache Project Management Committees, and 7,800+ Committers shepherding 300 projects and 200M+ lines of Apache code valued at more than $20B. Apache's breakthrough technology touches every aspect of modern computing, powering most of the Internet, managing exabytes of data, executing teraflops of operations, and storing trillions of objects in virtually every industry. Apache projects are all freely-available, at 100% no cost, and with no licensing fees. 

The documentary was shot by Wyona Pictures on location in September and October 2019 at ApacheCon North America in Las Vegas and ApacheCon Europe in Berlin.

The "Trillions and Trillions Served" feature can be viewed at https://s.apache.org/Trillions-Feature   

"Why Apache?", the teaser for the documentary, is available at https://s.apache.org/WhyApache  

"Apache Everywhere", a “Trillions” documentary short, is available at https://s.apache.org/ApacheEverywhere  

"Apache Innovation", the fourth and final segment from the "Trillions" series, will be released in Summer 2020.

The film was directed by ASF Member Michael Wechner, founder of Wyona Pictures, with cinematography by Dominik Gehring and Tobias Kaufmann.

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.

"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.
