I think it would be great, especially since some of the Rave team are
also in Holland (Rave cc'd)

Alas, I doubt I'm going to be able to justify budget on that one,
Sept/Oct/Nov is a very heavy travel period for me. Perhaps I'll join
via an IRC channel.

to announce that we'll be back (albeit in a smaller form) this October! We'll be hosting an
Apache track at GotoCon on Friday 14th, and then a Hackathon + BarCamp on Saturday 15th. Whether
you want to talk, hack or learn, there's hopefully something there for everyone!

a slightly different (more outreach) audience to our own ApacheCons. As we've only got the
one track (plus hopefully a bit of the search track too...), we're ideally looking for talks
that'll cover several projects. That could be how to combine several Apache projects to solve
a problem, giving an overview of several projects in the same space, or just explaining how
we work to an interested audience. Sucessful speakers will get a pass to the two days of the
conference, hotel and a contribution towards travel, so get thinking about your talk! Submissions
should be made at
>> Whether you're someone who likes presenting or not, we'd love for as many people
as possible to join us on the Saturday. Hippo have kindly agreed to give us some space, so
we're going to be hosting a hackathon and BarCamp. Depending on numbers, and especially on
the number of people willing to help, we may open the BarCamp up to everyone, or just keep
it for committers and potential future committers.

new projects, find out more about how Apache works, hack on some code or share your ideas!
If you'd like to come, please sign up on the wiki, and indicate your interests and if you
might be able to help with organising if we open things up for a public BarCampApacheAmsterdam!
