Subject ApacheCon North America 2018 schedule is now live.
Date Tue, 01 May 2018 12:36:05 GMT
Dear Apache Enthusiast,

We are pleased to announce our schedule for ApacheCon North America 
2018. ApacheCon will be held September 23-27 at the Montreal Marriott 
Chateau Champlain in Montreal, Canada.

Registration is open! The early bird rate of $575 lasts until July 21, 
at which time it goes up to $800. And the room block at the Marriott 
($225 CAD per night, including wifi) closes on August 24th.

We will be featuring more than 100 sessions on Apache projects. The 
schedule is now online at https://apachecon.com/acna18/

The schedule includes full tracks of content from Cloudstack[1], 
Tomcat[2], and our GeoSpatial community[3].

We will have 4 keynote speakers, two of whom are Apache members, and two 
from the wider community.

On Tuesday, Apache member and former board member Cliff Schmidt will be 
speaking about how Amplio uses technology to educate and improve the 
quality of life of people living in very difficult parts of the 
world[4]. And Apache Fineract VP Myrle Krantz will speak about how Open 
Source banking is helping the global fight against poverty[5].

Then, on Wednesday, we’ll hear from Bridget Kromhout, Principal Cloud 
Developer Advocate from Microsoft, about the really hard problem in 
software - the people[6]. And Euan McLeod, ‎VP VIPER at ‎Comcast will 
show us the many ways that Apache software delivers your favorite shows 
to your living room[7].

ApacheCon will also feature old favorites like the Lightning Talks, the 
Hackathon (running the duration of the event), PGP key signing, and lots 
of hallway-track time to get to know your project community better.

Follow us on Twitter, @ApacheCon, and join the discuss@apachecon.com 
mailing list (send email to discuss-subscribe@apachecon.com) to stay up 
to date with developments. And if your company wants to sponsor this 
event, get in touch at help@apachecon.com for opportunities that are 
still available.

See you in Montreal!
