Foundation & Conference Overview
The Apache Software Foundation (ASF), the all-volunteer group of developers, stewards, and incubators from nearly 150 Open Source projects and initiatives, today announced the dates of ApacheCon Europe 2012 and North America 2013.
The official conference, trainings, and expo of the ASF will be in Europe this year (2012) from 5 November to 9 November at the Rhein-Neckar Arena in Sinsheim, Germany. The Call For Papers is now open until 3 August. Early-bird registration will open 6 August.
Apache powers half the Internet, and petabytes of data, teraflops of operations, billions of objects, and it enhances the lives of countless users and developers.
ApacheCon brings developers and users together to explore key issues in building Open Source solutions "The Apache Way." The 2012 Europe event will cover a wide range of topics, from Cloud to Big Data, from Content to Servers, Search to Store, Business and Tools.
