ApacheCon heads to Dublin, Ireland

Author: JT Smith -- Camelot Communications and the Apache Software Foundation today announced ApacheCon Europe will be held in Dublin, Ireland, 15 through 17 October. Coming off another successful ApacheCon in Santa Clara, during which the Apache Web Server beta 2.0 was launched, the Apache Software Foundation (ASF) signed on Camelot Communications to produce the official Apache conference for the next three years.
"ApacheCon combines the energy and enthusiasm of hundreds of open source software developers, the humor and spirit of great minds like David Brin and John "maddog" Hall, and the organizational and marketing talents of Camelot Communications. We are proud to move forward with such a highly respected conference producer. In October 2001, Dublin, Ireland, a burgeoning software development center, will be ground-zero for Apache," said Ken Coar, ASF Board Member.

"Camelot Communications greatly appreciates the endorsement and continued support of the Apache Software Foundation. The open source movement and many of the great ideas that spawn the future of software development stem from the ApacheCon sessions and hackathons," said Terry DeGiuli, President of Camelot Communications. "This Fall, vendors, expert speakers, and developers seeking an edge will convene in Dublin and spread the Apache way."
