Subject Airavata for ApacheCon NA 2013
Date Fri, 26 Oct 2012 03:40:45 GMT
Hi All,

We need to put together a talk for ApacheCon NA. We can have the usual drill, but frankly
current Airavata community is less attended at ApacheCon. So a better impact for the project
at ApacheCon will be to find alignment with other Apache Projects and encourage broader participation.
Beyond Rave and OODT, any concrete ideas on how Airavata can draw value from or add value
to fellow apache projects?

returns to North America 24 February-2 March 2013 at the Hilton Portland & Executive Tower
in Portland, Oregon.

and enthusiasts to address today's issues, opportunities, and solutions focusing on the ASF's
many diverse projects and initiatives. The event takes place 24 February-2 March 2013, starting
with pre-conference trainings, BarCamp, and hackathon the first two days; main conference
+ expo 26-28 February; followed by post-conference sprints, workshops, and team building events.

reflecting the enormous reach of the ASF's software projects, from the ubiquitous Apache HTTP
Server to dozens of initiatives in the Apache Incubator and Labs such as Allura, CloudStack,
Cordova (nee Phonegap), Flex, and OpenOffice.

> Developers and users of Apache technologies are invited to share their experiences, ideas,
inspirations and knowledge. From the flagship Apache HTTP Server to Cassandra to Hadoop to
Lucene/Solr to OODT to TrafficServer, Apache products power half the Internet, petabytes of
data, teraflops of operations, billions of objects, and enhance the lives of countless users
and developers. 
> The ApacheCon program is created by Apache Members and Committers for the community-at-large:
all content is carefully reviewed and selected by Apache Project Management Committee contributors.
All those with an interest in Apache software are welcome to submit a proposal and celebrate
the diversity of the projects under the Apache banner.
> Who Should Attend
> ApacheCon is for everyone! ASF affiliation is not required to present at, attend, or
otherwise participate in ApacheCon. First held in 1999 for developers and users of the Apache
Server to meet face-to-face, ApacheCon is the ASF's official conference, trainings, and expo
series, and the public showcase for Apache innovations.
> ApacheCon is the ideal opportunity for those 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 addition, ApacheCon
is a great way to meet the individual contributors behind some of the industry's most popular
Apache projects through hands-on educational sessions and ample networking opportunities.
