Announcing ApacheCon @Home 2020

2020-06-29 Thread Rich Bowen

Hi, Apache enthusiast!

(You’re receiving this because you’re subscribed to one or more dev or 
user mailing lists for an Apache Software Foundation project.)


The ApacheCon Planners and the Apache Software Foundation are pleased to 
announce that ApacheCon @Home will be held online, September 29th 
through October 1st, 2020. We’ll be featuring content from dozens of our 
projects, as well as content about community, how Apache works, business 
models around Apache software, the legal aspects of open source, and 
many other topics.


Full details about the event, and registration, is available at 
https://apachecon.com/acah2020


Due to the confusion around how and where this event was going to be 
held, and in order to open up to presenters from around the world who 
may previously have been unable or unwilling to travel, we’ve reopened 
the Call For Presentations until July 13th. Submit your talks today at 
https://acna2020.jamhosted.net/


We hope to see you at the event!

in Chicago’s Logan Square neighborhood. This event will feature sessions
in AdTech, FinTech and Insurance, startups, “Made in Chicago”, Project
Shark Tank (innovations from the Apache Incubator), community diversity,
and more. It’s a great way to learn about various Apache projects “at
work” while playing at a brewery, a beercade, and a neighborhood bar.
Sign up today at https://www.apachecon.com/chiroadshow19/

We’re delighted to announce that the Call for Presentations (CFP) is now

ApacheCon North America 2018 schedule is now live.

2018-05-01 Thread Rich Bowen

Dear Apache Enthusiast,

We are pleased to announce our schedule for ApacheCon North America 
2018. ApacheCon will be held September 23-27 at the Montreal Marriott 
Chateau Champlain in Montreal, Canada.


Registration is open! The early bird rate of $575 lasts until July 21, 
at which time it goes up to $800. And the room block at the Marriott 
($225 CAD per night, including wifi) closes on August 24th.


We will be featuring more than 100 sessions on Apache projects. The 
schedule is now online at https://apachecon.com/acna18/


The schedule includes full tracks of content from Cloudstack[1], 
Tomcat[2], and our GeoSpatial community[3].


We will have 4 keynote speakers, two of whom are Apache members, and two 
from the wider community.


On Tuesday, Apache member and former board member Cliff Schmidt will be 
speaking about how Amplio uses technology to educate and improve the 
quality of life of people living in very difficult parts of the 
world[4]. And Apache Fineract VP Myrle Krantz will speak about how Open 
Source banking is helping the global fight against poverty[5].


Then, on Wednesday, we’ll hear from Bridget Kromhout, Principal Cloud 
Developer Advocate from Microsoft, about the really hard problem in 
software - the people[6]. And Euan McLeod, ‎VP VIPER at ‎Comcast will 
show us the many ways that Apache software delivers your favorite shows 
to your living room[7].


ApacheCon will also feature old favorites like the Lightning Talks, the 
Hackathon (running the duration of the event), PGP key signing, and lots 
of hallway-track time to get to know your project community better.


Follow us on Twitter, @ApacheCon, and join the disc...@apachecon.com 
mailing list (send email to discuss-subscr...@apachecon.com) to stay up

ApacheCon CFP closing soon (11 February)

2017-01-18 Thread Rich Bowen
Hello, fellow Apache enthusiast. Thanks for your participation, and
interest in, the projects of the Apache Software Foundation.

I wanted to remind you that the Call For Papers (CFP) for ApacheCon
North America, and Apache: Big Data North America, closes in less than a
month. If you've been putting it off because there was lots of time
left, it's time to dig for that inspiration and get those talk proposals in.

It's also time to discuss with your developer and user community whether
there's a track of talks that you might want to propose, so that you
have more complete coverage of your project than a talk or two.

We're looking for talks directly, and indirectly, related to projects at
the Apache Software Foundation. These can be anything from in-depth
technical discussions of the projects you work with, to talks about
community, documentation, legal issues, marketing, and so on. We're also
very interested in talks about projects and services built on top of
Apache projects, and case studies of how you use Apache projects to
solve real-world problems.

We are particularly interested in presentations from Apache projects
either in the Incubator, or recently graduated. ApacheCon is where
people come to find out what technology they'll be using this time next
year.

Important URLs are:

To submit a talk for Apache: Big Data -
http://events.linuxfoundation.org/events/apache-big-data-north-america/program/cfp
To submit a talk for ApacheCon -
http://events.linuxfoundation.org/events/apachecon-north-america/program/cfp

To register for Apache: Big Data -
http://events.linuxfoundation.org/events/apache-big-data-north-america/attend/register-
To register for ApacheCon -
http://events.linuxfoundation.org/events/apachecon-north-america/attend/register-

Early Bird registration rates end March 12th, but if you're a committer
on an Apache project, you get the low committer rate, which is less than
half of the early bird rate!

For further updated about ApacheCon, follow us on Twitter, @ApacheCon,
or drop by our IRC channel, #apachecon on the Freenode IRC network. Or
contact me - rbo...@apache.org - with any questions or concerns.

Thanks!

Rich Bowen, VP Conferences, Apache Software Foundation

Speaking as the guy who gets to help advertise the event, I would personally 
like to see some third-party stuff at ApacheCon. Particularly popular apps that 
people run on top of Apache Foo.

I must admit my ignorance, I don't know what that is with Tomcat. But if 
there's some very popular application that folks tend to run on top of Tomcat, 
having the expert from that community join us for this event gives us an 
opportunity to cross-pollinate with other communities.

Admittedly, we've had very little success with this, with *other* Apache 
projects, but it seems worth asking. :-)

Save the date: ApacheCon Miami, May 15-19, 2017

2016-11-30 Thread Rich Bowen
Dear Apache enthusiast,

ApacheCon and Apache Big Data will be held at the Intercontinental in
Miami, Florida, May 16-18, 2017. Submit your talks, and register, at
http://apachecon.com/  Talks aimed at the Big Data section of the event
should go to
http://events.linuxfoundation.org/events/apache-big-data-north-america/program/cfp
while other talks should go to
http://events.linuxfoundation.org/events/apachecon-north-america/program/cfp


ApacheCon is the best place to meet the people that develop the software
that you use and rely on. It’s also a great opportunity to deepen your
involvement in the project, and perhaps make the leap to contributing.
And we find that user case studies, showcasing how you use Apache
projects to solve real world problems, are very popular at this event.
So, do consider whether you have a use case that might make a good
presentation.

ApacheCon will have many different ways that you can participate:

Technical Content: We’ll have three days of technical sessions covering
many of the projects at the ASF. We’ll be publishing a schedule of talks
on March 9th, so that you can plan what you’ll be attending

BarCamp: The Apache BarCamp is a standard feature of ApacheCon - an
un-conference style event, where the schedule is determined on-site by
the attendees, and anything is fair game.

Lightning Talks: Even if you don’t give a full-length talk, the
Lightning Talks are five minute presentations on any topic related to
the ASF, and can be given by any attendee. If there’s something you’re
passionate about, consider giving a Lightning Talk.

Sponsor: It costs money to put on a conference, and this is a great
opportunity for companies involved in Apache projects, or who benefit
from Apache code - your employers - to get their name and products in
front of the community. Sponsors can start any any monetary level, and
can sponsor everything from the conference badge lanyard, through larger
items such as video recordings and evening events. For more information
on sponsoring ApacheCon, see http://apachecon.com/sponsor/

So, get your tickets today at http://apachecon.com/ and submit your
talks. ApacheCon Miami is going to be our best ApacheCon yet, and you,
and your project, can’t afford to miss it.

ApacheCon is now less than a month away!

2016-10-19 Thread Rich Bowen
Dear Apache Enthusiast,

ApacheCon Sevilla is now less than a month out, and we need your help
getting the word out. Please tell your colleagues, your friends, and
members of related technical communities, about this event. Rates go up
November 3rd, so register today!

ApacheCon, and Apache Big Data, are the official gatherings of the
Apache Software Foundation, and one of the best places in the world to
meet other members of your project community, gain deeper knowledge
about your favorite Apache projects, learn about the ASF. Your project
doesn't live in a vacuum - it's part of a larger family of projects that
have a shared set of values, as well as a shared governance model. And
many of our project have an overlap in developers, in communities, and
in subject matter, making ApacheCon a great place for cross-pollination
of ideas and of communities.

Some highlights of these events will be:

* Many of our board members and project chairs will be present
* The lightning talks are a great place to hear, and give, short
presentations about what you and other members of the community are
working on
* The key signing gets you linked into the web of trust, and better
able to verify our software releases
* Evening receptions and parties where you can meet community
members in a less formal setting
* The State of the Feather, where you can learn what the ASF has
done in the last year, and what's coming next year
* BarCampApache, an informal unconference-style event, is another
venue for discussing your projects at the ASF

We have a great schedule lined up, covering the wide range of ASF
projects, including:

* CI and CD at Scale: Scaling Jenkins with Docker and Apache Mesos -
Carlos Sanchez
* Inner sourcing 101 - Jim Jagielski
* Java Memory Leaks in Modular Environments - Mark Thomas

ApacheCon/Apache Big Data will be held in Sevilla, Spain, at the Melia
Sevilla, November 14th through 18th. You can find out more at
http://apachecon.com/  Other ways to stay up to date with ApacheCon are:

* Follow us on Twitter at @apachecon
* Join us on IRC, at #apachecon on the Freenode IRC network
* Join the apachecon-discuss mailing list by sending email to
apachecon-discuss-subscr...@apache.org
* Or contact me directly at rbo...@apache.org with questions,
comments, or to volunteer to help

See you in Sevilla!

ApacheCon Seville CFP closes September 9th

2016-08-30 Thread Rich Bowen
It's traditional. We wait for the last minute to get our talk proposals
in for conferences.

Well, the last minute has arrived. The CFP for ApacheCon Seville closes
on September 9th, which is less than 2 weeks away. It's time to get your
talks in, so that we can make this the best ApacheCon yet.

It's also time to discuss with your developer and user community whether
there's a track of talks that you might want to propose, so that you
have more complete coverage of your project than a talk or two.

For Apache Big Data, the relevant URLs are:
Event details:
http://events.linuxfoundation.org/events/apache-big-data-europe
CFP:
http://events.linuxfoundation.org/events/apache-big-data-europe/program/cfp

For ApacheCon Europe, the relevant URLs are:
Event details: http://events.linuxfoundation.org/events/apachecon-europe
CFP: http://events.linuxfoundation.org/events/apachecon-europe/program/cfp

This year, we'll be reviewing papers "blind" - that is, looking at the
abstracts without knowing who the speaker is. This has been shown to
eliminate the "me and my buddies" nature of many tech conferences,
producing more diversity, and more new speakers. So make sure your
abstracts clearly explain what you'll be talking about.

For further updated about ApacheCon, follow us on Twitter, @ApacheCon,
or drop by our IRC channel, #apachecon on the Freenode IRC network.

[ANNOUNCE] CFP open for ApacheCon North America 2016

2015-11-25 Thread Rich Bowen
Community growth starts by talking with those interested in your
project. ApacheCon North America is coming, are you?

We are delighted to announce that the Call For Presentations (CFP) is
now open for ApacheCon North America. You can submit your proposed
sessions at
http://events.linuxfoundation.org/events/apache-big-data-north-america/program/cfp
for big data talks and
http://events.linuxfoundation.org/events/apachecon-north-america/program/cfp
for all other topics.

ApacheCon North America will be held in Vancouver, Canada, May 9-13th
2016. ApacheCon has been running every year since 2000, and is the place
to build your project communities.

While we will consider individual talks we prefer to see related
sessions that are likely to draw users and community members. When
submitting your talk work with your project community and with related
communities to come up with a full program that will walk attendees
through the basics and on into mastery of your project in example use
cases. Content that introduces what's new in your latest release is also
of particular interest, especially when it builds upon existing well
know application models. The goal should be to showcase your project in
ways that will attract participants and encourage engagement in your
community, Please remember to involve your whole project community (user
and dev lists) when building content. This is your chance to create a
project specific event within the broader ApacheCon conference.

Content at ApacheCon North America will be cross-promoted as
mini-conferences, such as ApacheCon Big Data, and ApacheCon Mobile, so
be sure to indicate which larger category your proposed sessions fit into.

Finally, please plan to attend ApacheCon, even if you're not proposing a
talk. The biggest value of the event is community building, and we count
on you to make it a place where your project community is likely to
congregate, not just for the technical content in sessions, but for
hackathons, project summits, and good old fashioned face-to-face networking.
