conference of the Apache Software Foundation (ASF),
announced today the opening of registration for
ApacheCon 2003, to be held November 16-20, 2003 in Las

Forward-thinking open source users, developers,
programmers, system administrators, and information

problem-solving skills with peers from across the
globe. Offering a wide range of beginner, intermediate
and advanced sessions, ApacheCon attendees will learn
firsthand the latest developments in Apache, the
world's most popular Web server software, as well as
key open source projects spanning PHP, Perl, XML,
Java, MySQL, WebDAV, and more. Debuting at ApacheCon

educate, and interact with some of the industry's
sharpest minds," said ApacheCon 2003 Chairman Ken

voice in providing input and feedback to the Apache
Software Foundation, thereby making a direct impact on
the Apache community."
