Wakefield, MA —4 March 2019— ApacheCon, the official conference series of The Apache Software
Foundation (ASF), announced today the Apache Roadshow/DC, held in partnership with George
Mason University (GMU).

WHO
The Apache Software Foundation is the world's largest Open Source foundation. The all-volunteer
ASF develops, stewards, and incubates more than 350 enterprise-grade projects that serve as
the backbone for some of the most visible and widely used applications in computing today.
From artificial intelligence and deep learning, Big Data, build management, Cloud computing,
content management, DevOps, IoT and Edge computing, mobile, servers, Web frameworks, and many
other categories, all Apache software products are available to the public-at-large at 100%
no cost, and benefit billions of users around the world.

George Mason University, Virginia’s largest and most diverse public research university,
enrolls 37,000 students from 130 countries and all 50 states, who attend on campuses in Fairfax,
Arlington, Manassas, and Loudoun, Virginia, as well as in Songdo, South Korea.

The Apache Roadshow is held in cooperation with the Center for Assurance Research & Engineering
(CARE) of the Volgenau School of Engineering at George Mason University. The multidisciplinary
school maintains a dual pre-eminence in both information technology and engineering, and seeks
to graduate students who will take initiative, step up, and leave the planet better than they
found it.

WHAT
Apache Roadshows are part of the official ASF conference series: they are smaller events with
a more focused program and regional community engagement.

The DC Roadshow program features two dozen presentations on Apache projects across the following
tracks: government, cybersecurity, CARE projects, and career development, in tandem with one
of the first Open Source Software job fairs.

Topics include The Apache Way, analytics, Big Data, Cloud, cybersecurity, governance, healthcare,
machine learning and natural language processing (NLP), and security, featuring Apache projects
such as Airflow, Cassandra, cTAKES, Daffodil (incubating), Drill, Fortress, Hadoop, Ignite,
NiFi, Rya, Tomcat, and more.

Speakers include representatives from The Apache Software Foundation, Apifocal, Benefits Data
Trust, BMC Software, Capital One, Cloudera, ConSensys, DataNexus, Deloitte, Deutsche Bank,
Fannie Mae, George Mason University, GridGain, IEEE, MITRE, Symas, Thomson Reuters, Total
Child Health, Tresys, US Naval Academy, Verizon Media, and WSO2, among others.

The Roadshow's opening keynote, "Why Open Source is Vital in IT", will be presented by Jim
Jagielski, co-founder of the ASF, Project Management Committee member of Apache HTTP Server
and Apache Tomcat, and Open Source Chef at ConSensys.
