The Travel Assistance Committee is now taking in applications for those
wanting to attend the Apache Retreat in Hursley in the UK, which is taking
place between the 17th and 19th September.
The Travel Assistance Committee is looking for people who would like to be
able to attend the Retreat, but who need some financial support in order
to be able to get there. There are limited places available, and all
applications will be scored on their individual merit. Applications are
open to all open source developers, both Apache Committers wishing to
attend the whole event, and other developers wishing to attend the one-day
Financial assistance is available to cover travel to the event, either in
part or in full, depending on circumstances. However, the support
available for those attending only the barcamp is smaller than that for
people attending the whole event. The Travel Assistance Committee aims to
support all ApacheCons, and cross-project events, and so it may be prudent
for those in Asia and the Americas to wait for an event closer to them.
Please note that for this event, assistance with visa applications is not
available. People who don't currently have permission to travel to the UK
are advised to wait for ApacheCon NA (or a later local retreat), and
indicate in their application for that conference that they were unable to
attend the retreat.
More information can be found on the main Apache website at
http://www.apache.org/travel/index.html - where you will also find a link
to the online application and details for submitting.
Applications for applying for travel assistance have just opened, and will
close on the 1st of August 2010.
Good luck to all those that will apply.
Nick, on behalf of the Travel Assistance Committee
