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 events.

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.
