Portland, Oregon sets the stage for "Open Source Community Leadership
Drives Enterprise-Grade Innovation", the theme for the 25th edition of
Apache's popular conference series

Forest Hill, MD – 2 October 2012 – The Apache Software Foundation
(ASF), the all-volunteer developers, stewards, and incubators of
nearly 150 Open Source projects and initiatives, today announced
ApacheCon North America 2013. The ASF's official conference,
trainings, and expo returns to North America 24 February-2 March 2013
at the Hilton Portland & Executive Tower in Portland, Oregon.

ApacheCon draws Open Source users, developers, gurus, students,
novices, community managers, 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

This year's theme is "Open Source Community Leadership Drives
Enterprise-Grade Innovation", 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.

The Call For Papers is now open through 5 November 2012. Early-bird
registration will open 23 November 2012.

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.
