> The Apache Software Foundation (ASF) invites submissions to its  
> official
> user and developer conference, taking place 2-6 November 2009 at the  
> Oakland
> Convention Center and Marriott Hotel. ApacheCon serves as a forum for
> showcasing the ASF's latest projects, members, and community  
> initiatives.
> Offering unparalleled educational opportunities, ApacheCon's  
> presentations,
> hands-on trainings, and sessions address key technology, development,
> business/community, and licensing issues in Open Source.
>
> The wide range of activities offered at ApacheCon promotes the  
> exchange of
> ideas amongst ASF Members, committers, innovators, developers,  
> vendors, and
> users interested in the future of Open Source technology. The

> Conference Themes and Topics
>
> Building on ten years of success, ApacheCon returns to the Bay Area  
> for the
> 10th anniversary of the Apache Software Foundation. Comprising some  
> of the
> most active and recognized developers in the Open Source community,
> ApacheCon provides an influential platform for dialogue between Open  
> Source
> developers and users, traversing a wide range of ideas, expertise, and
> personalities.
>
> ApacheCon welcomes submissions across many fields, geographic  
> locations, and
> areas of development. The breadth of the Apache community lends  
> itself to
> conference content that is somewhat loosely-structured, with common  
> themes
> of interest addressing groundbreaking technologies and emerging  
> trends, best
> practices (from development to deployment), case studies and lessons  
> learned
> (tips, tools, and tricks). In addition, ApacheCon will continue to  
> offer its
> highly popular, two-day intensive trainings; certifications of  
> completion
> will be distributed to those who fulfill all the training  
> requirements.
>
> Topics appropriate for submission are manifold, and may include but  
> are not
> restricted to: Apache HTTP server (installation, configuration,  
> migration,

> and
> Maven); Scripting languages and dynamic content (such as Java, Perl,  
> Python,
> Ruby, XSL, and PHP); Security and e-commerce (performance tuning, load
> balancing and high availability); New technologies (including broader
> initiatives such as Web Services and Web 2.0); ASF-Incubated  
> projects (such
