Subject The Apache Software Foundation Announces Program, Speaker Lineup, Sponsors for ApacheCon Europe
Date Fri, 21 Sep 2012 12:25:12 GMT
--this announcement is also online at http://s.apache.org/vEW

The ApacheCon Europe Planning team today announced the program, speaker 
lineup, and sponsors for ApacheCon, the official conference of The 
Apache Software Foundation.

ApacheCon returns to Europe 5-8 
November 2012 at the Rhein-Neckar-Arena in Sinsheim, Germany, attracting
 Open Source users, developers, gurus, students, novices, and 
enthusiasts to the newly-introduced "Community Edition" of ApacheCon --a
 smaller, less formal event aimed at a more technically-oriented 
audience, and featuring an array of sessions focused on Apache projects 
and initiatives, plus MeetUps, FastFeather and Community Tracks, 
Hackathon, and BarCamp. This is an ideal opportunity for technologists 
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.

ApacheCon Europe Community Edition is organized and 
run by the Apache community; all content for ApacheCon has been selected
 by Apache Project Management Committees. 13 tracks explore key Open 
Source applications and issues, from Big Data and Smart Search to Cloud 
and Infrastructure, and include:

frameworks, and components used on a daily basis, such as Apache 
Logging, Apache Maven, Apache Ant, Apache Buildr, Apache Commons, and 
more.

Open Source community experience, this is the place to roll up sleeves 
and get started.
