Apache products power over half the Internet, petabytes of data, teraflops of operations, billions of objects, and enhance the lives of countless users and developers. ApacheCon brings developers and users together to explore key issues in building Open Source solutions “The Apache Way”. With hundreds of thousands of applications deploying ASF products and code contributions by more than 3,500 Committers from around the world, the Apache community is recognized as among the most robust, successful, and respected in Open Source.
Apache products power more than 400 million Websites and countless mission-critical applications worldwide, from financial services to publishing to radioastronomy to social networking to biomedicine research data stores to mobile medical applications. More than a dozen Apache projects form the foundation of today’s Cloud computing, and Apache software continues to play a key role in the evolution of Big Data. Five of the top 10 Open Source downloads are Apache projects: understanding their breadth and capabilities has never been more important in today’s marketplace.
ApacheCon brings together the open source community to learn about and collaborate on the technologies and projects driving the future of open source, big data and cloud computing. Apache projects have and continue to be hugely influential in the innovation and development of software development across a plethora of categories from content, databases and servers, to big data, cloud, mobile and virtual machine. The developers, programmers, committers and users driving this innovation and utilizing these tools will meet in Budapest, November 17-21, for collaboration, education and community building.
First held in 1999 for developers and users of the Apache Server to meet face-to-face, ApacheCon is the official conference, trainings, and expo series of The Apache Software Foundation (ASF), and is the public showcase for Apache innovations.This three day technical conference will bring together 500+ attendees and offer over 100 conference sessions across a variety of open source topics covering all Apache projects, as well as visionary keynotes, lightning talks, hackathons, meetups and more.
