Registration Opens for ApacheCon 2003, the Global Hub for All Things Apache

* *

 -- 09/15/2003 --  http://www.apachecon.com/ -- ApacheCon, the official
conference of the Apache Software Foundation (ASF), announced today the
opening of registration for ApacheCon 2003, to be held November 16-20, 2003
in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Forward-thinking open source users, developers, programmers, system
administrators, and information architects head to ApacheCon to master new
technologies, expand their knowledge and share problem-solving skills with
peers from across the globe. Offering a wide range of beginner,
intermediate and advanced sessions, ApacheCon attendees will learn
firsthand the latest developments in Apache, the world's most popular Web
server software, as well as key open source projects spanning PHP, Perl,
XML, Java, MySQL, WebDAV, and more. Debuting at ApacheCon is code-named
Geronimo, the ASF-licensed open source implementation of the J2EE
specification that builds upon the many ASF-driven Java projects in liaison
with leading members of the Castor, JBoss, MX4J and OpenEJB communities.

"We're proud to offer the opportunity to inspire, educate, and interact
with some of the industry's sharpest minds," said ApacheCon 2003 Chairman
Ken Coar. "ApacheCon attendees are part of a collective voice in providing
input and feedback to the Apache Software Foundation, thereby making a
direct impact on the Apache community."

More than 60 Sessions Highlight Core and Next-Generation Apache Server

ApacheCon kicks off with intensive full- and half-day tutorials that offer
real world insight, techniques, and methodologies pivotal to the increasing
demand for open source software. Attendees hone their skills, learn
shortcuts and hacks and solve programming challenges on a variety of
topics, including Apache 2.0, Jakarta, PHP, Perl, and SVG.

This year's sessions highlight the dynamic nature of open development, and
are grouped into three Focus Days: 1) Apache with XML and Java; 2) All
Things Apache; and 3) Apache with Perl and PHP. ApacheCon presenters and
faculty include some of the most accomplished and respected leaders in the
open source community, such as Rich Bowen, Doug Tidwell, Stas Bekman,
Rasmus Lerdorf, Greg Stein, Stefano Mazzocchi, and Geoffrey Young, along
with keynote speakers Chris Pirillo and Doc Searls.

Attendees can meet ASF members and peers during the ApacheCon Expo, evening
events, birds of a feather sessions and a number of informal social
gatherings. Premier sponsors include the Java Community Process (JCP), and
Sun Microsystems who returns as a platinum sponsor.

Once again ApacheCon is offering early registration incentives, including a
tiered discount of up to $400 off the $899 individual registration fee to
those who register by 30 September. The full conference schedule, tutorial
descriptions, sponsorship and exhibitor opportunities, and venue details
can be found at the ApacheCon 2003 Website. Register today at
