Date Tue, 30 Oct 2012 12:00:29 GMT
NOTE: this announcement is also available online at http://s.apache.org/08

Premier Open Source event brings developers and users together to lead communities "The Apache
Way", and accelerate success in evaluating, building, adopting, and deploying solutions across
the Apache ecosystem.

Forest Hill, MD –30 October 2012– The Apache Software Foundation (ASF) today announced
key milestones and updates for ApacheCon, its official conference series.

Now in its 13th year, ApacheCon brings users, developers, gurus, students, novices, and enthusiasts
together to explore key issues in evaluating, building, and adopting Open Source innovations
"The Apache Way". ApacheCon is an ideal opportunity for technologists currently developing
Apache-based solutions, as well as those interested in committing code to an Apache project,
contributing to the Apache Incubator, or enhancing their Open Source products and community
practices. In alignment with the community-driven culture of the ASF, all content for ApacheCon
is selected by members of Apache Project Management Committees.

More than 500 delegates will convene at ApacheCon Europe 5-8 November 2012 at the Rhein-Neckar-Arena
in Sinsheim, Germany. The sold-out event marks the introduction of the "Community Edition"
of ApacheCon --a smaller, less formal event aimed at a more technically-oriented audience,
and featuring nearly 140 presentations across 6 tracks, MeetUps, FastFeather and Community
Tracks, Hackathon, and BarCamp. The complete schedule is available at http://www.apachecon.eu/schedule/

ApacheCon Europe is underwritten through a generous donation by Platinum Sponsor SAP; Claus
von Riegen, Head of Open Source and Open Standards participation, will serve as the conference’s
opening plenary speaker. Joining SAP are Gold Sponsors Citrix (co-sponsors of the Cloud Track
and sponsors of the event’s wireless connectivity), Google (sponsors of special student
registration subsidies), Hortonworks (exclusive sponsors of the Big Data Track), and LucidWorks
(exclusive sponsors of the Lucene/Solr & Friends Track and LuceneEurocon, which is co-located
with ApacheCon); and Silver Sponsors Cloudant (co-sponsors of the NoSQL Database Track), HP
(co-sponsors of the Cloud Track), Optiver (co-sponsors of the NoSQL Database Track), and Oracle
(sponsors of the Apache OpenOffice Track); and evening events sponsors Adobe, codeBusters,
The Open Bastion, and VMware.

ApacheCon Europe Community Edition is organized and run by the Apache community with assistance
from The Open Bastion, producers of ApacheCon North America 2013.

Scheduled to take place 24 February – 2 March 2013, ApacheCon North America will be held
at the Portland Hilton in Portland, Oregon, United States. The event will kick off with pre-conference
trainings, BarCamp, and hackathon the first two days; followed by the main conference + expo
26-28 February; and closing with post-conference sprints, workshops, and team building events.

The theme for ApacheCon North America is "Open Source Community Leadership Drives Enterprise-Grade
Innovation", showcasing the diverse applications and solutions made possible by Apache technologies.
Submissions about novel uses of Apache products and how they are helping to shape the future
are particularly welcome, including proposals on technical, business and community matters
for audiences at all levels from beginner to expert, with particular focus on those demonstrating
real-world experience of solving specific problems.

Dozens of Apache technologies—from Abdera to Zookeeper—will be represented across popular
topic areas and tracks that include: Apache Daily (everyday tools, frameworks, and components),
ApacheEE (Java Enterprise projects at the ASF), Big Data, Enterprise Messaging & Integration,
Cloud, Linked Data, Lucene/Solr & Friends (Smart Search & Analytics), Modular Java,
NoSQL Database,    OFBiz (Open Source Enterprise Resource Planning), Apache OpenOffice,
Web Infrastructure, Business & Community, and many more. To submit a proposal for ApacheCon
North America, visit http://na.apachecon.com/
