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.
