Apache project committers and users will gather in Budapest to discuss Big Data and other
key Apache technologies 

SAN FRANCISCO - July 29, 2015 - The Linux Foundation, the nonprofit organization dedicated
to accelerating the growth of Linux and collaborative development, today announced the lineup
of speakers and sessions for Apache: Big Data and ApacheCon: Core Europe, The Apache Software
Foundation's (ASF) official conference series which will showcase dozens of key Apache projects
across topics and tracks such as cloud computing, deployment, Internet of Things (IoT), libraries,
microservices, web development, community, and more. The events will take place 1-2 October
2015 at the Corinthia Hotel in Budapest, Hungary. 

Apache: Big Data will be held in Budapest, September 28 - 30, with content designed to gather
together the Apache projects, people and technologies working on big data, ubiquitous computing
and data engineering and science to educate, collaborate and connect in a vendor-neutral environment.

Apache: Big Data keynote speakers include: 

- Josh Baer, Hadoop lead at Spotify, will share how Apache drives Spotify's music recommendations.

- Dirk Duellmann, deputy leader of the data and storage services group in the IT department
at CERN, will discuss the large scale (100 PB) data management and analysis infrastructure
for physics data at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). 
- Ross Gardler, ASF President, will present his annual 'State of the Feather', providing an
overview of the Foundation as it relates to Big Data, and how collaboration and The Apache
Way will continue to support future advances. 
- Arun Murthy, co-founder of Hortonworks, will discuss 'Apache's Key Role in the Big Data
- Gary Richardson, head of data engineering at KPMG for the UK, will discuss strategies for
keeping the elephant in room; moving from proof of concept to full scale enterprise Hadoop
- And a panel discussion on the Open Data Platform Initiative featuring speakers from Altiscale,
Hortonworks, IBM, Pivotal, and WANDisco. 

These keynote speakers reflect the tremendous importance of Big Data and how Apache projects
are leading the way in developing innovative ways to leverage it. 

"Having worked on Hadoop since the early days, the Apache community has always been a critical
component in the re-platforming of enterprise data architecture," said Arun Murthy, co-founder,
Hortonworks. "Everything we do at Hortonworks is under the governance of the ASF and I look
forward to connecting with the community at Apache: Big Data." 

Apache: Big Data session highlights include: 

- Data Science in the Travel Industry: Real-World Experience with Current Leading Frameworks
- Paul Balmm, data scientist at Amadeus 
- Being Ready for Apache Kafka: Today's Ecosystem and Future Roadmap - Michael Noll, developer
evangelist at Confluent 
- In Memory Analytics in Apache Ignite -- Why you need more than Spark - Atri Sharma, assistant

ApacheCon: Core is aimed at open source users, developers, programmers, students, novices,
community managers, and enthusiasts seeking to leverage the power of popular Apache projects
that include the ubiquitous Apache™ HTTP and Tomcat™ web servers, as well as Camel, Cordova,
Flex, Mesos, OFBiz, OpenOffice, Sling, Solr, Zest, ZooKeeper, and more. 

Those 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 engagement are provided the opportunity to meet the individuals behind some
of the industry's most popular Apache projects. ApacheCon: Core tracks, presentations, and
mini-summits are dedicated to specific Apache projects and organized by their respective communities.
In addition to outstanding education, collaboration, and networking, attendees will learn
about the latest emerging innovations from the Apache Incubator, including Apache Brooklyn,
Geode, Groovy, Johnzon, and Tamaya, as well as other open source topics and issues, such as
The Apache Way, best practices, licensing, community development, and the Summer of Code.

ApacheCon: Core keynote speakers include: 

- Ross Gardler, ASF President, will present his annual 'State of the Feather', providing an
overview of the Foundation, how it continues to grow, and how to accelerate IT innovation.

Serge Huber, CTO at Jahia, will provide a brief introduction to Apache Unomi, a new Apache

Server specification currently being worked on by  - the OASIS Context Server Technical Committee.

ApacheCon: Core session highlights include: 

- Engineering, Business & Legal Choices for Bringing Commercial Software to Open Source
- Gregory Chase, Pivotal 
- Keeping your Apache Project's Independence and Brand - Shane Curcuru, Apache Software Foundation

The Apache Software Foundation (ASF) and The Linux Foundation have joined forces to produce
Apache: Big Data and ApacheCon: Core to bring the power of these projects together under one
roof where the developers and maintainers of the projects can work with users and collaborate
with each other to accelerate the state of the art. 

"Apache: Big Data and ApacheCon: Core will provide a greater breadth and depth of content
than any Apache event before," said Amanda McPherson, CMO and VP Developer Programs at The
Linux Foundation. "The top content we have lined up, coupled with the huge range of talented
and experienced committers from a wide variety of project makes this a can't miss open source
event in Europe." 

"We are thrilled to offer users and developers an event specifically focused on Apache's Big
Data projects, while also highlighting key technologies under the ApacheCon umbrella," said
Rich Bowen, Executive Vice President of The Apache Software Foundation. "As The ASF continues
to grow, it is essential that those working with Apache projects have the opportunity to meet
face-to-face and promote cross-collaboration between various projects." 

Registration is now open for both events, at a discounted price of €599 for Apache: Big
Data, €499 for ApacheCon: Core, or €898 for both events through August 1. Register for
Apache: Big Data at http://events.linuxfoundation.org/events/apache-big-data-europe/attend/register,
