The Apache Software Foundation is putting together what looks like it will be one of the better open source events of the year: ApacheCon North America, to be held in Austin, Texas, April 13th - 16th. Austin is a fun place to visit, and the agenda for ApacheCon looks excellent. You can register by March 21st to take advantage of the earlybird pricing and here are more details on the event.
The Linux Foundation and The Apache Software Foundation are again joining forces to advance and support open source development by co-producing this year's ApacheCon events in North America and Europe.
ApacheCon is meant to reinforce the Apache Software Foundation's core tenet of 'Community Over Code,' with sessions that focus on open source projects, including Apache projects Cassandra, Cordova, CloudStack, CouchDB, Geronimo, Hadoop, Hive, HTTP Server, Lucene, OpenOffice, Struts, Subversion and Tomcat, among others. Overall, ApacheCon will feature 500+ Apache project community developers and users.
