Our schedule features keynotes by James Gosling, the father of Java;
Samaira Mehta, founder and CEO of the Billion Kids Can Code project; and
David Brin, noted science fiction author and futurist. And we’ll have a
discussion panel featuring some of the founders of The Apache Software
Foundation, talking about the past as well as their vision for the future.
ApacheCon is the flagship convention of the ASF, and features tracks
curated by many of our project communities: Apache Drill, Apache Karaf,
Big Data, TomcatCon, Apache Cloudstack, Integration, Apache Cassandra,
Streaming, Geospatial software, Graph processing, Internet of Things,
Community, Machine Learning, Apache Traffic Control, Apache Beam,
Observability, OFBiz, and Mobile app development.
The Hackathon, which will run all day, every day, is the place to meet
your project community, and get some serious work knocked out in a short
focused time. The BarCamp is the place to discuss the topics that are
important to you, with your colleagues, in an unconference format.
We offer financial assistance for travel and lodging for those who want
to come to ApacheCon but are unable to afford it. Apply at
http://apache.org/travel/ by June 21st to be considered for this.
If you’re unable to make it to North America, we’ll also be running
ApacheCon Europe in Berlin in October. Details of that event are at
