ApacheCon is the official conference of the Apache Software Foundation. Its primary goals are education and community building. We try to produce one each calendar year somewhere in North America and Europe, and are working on expanding this to the rest of the world.
While ApacheCons vary from year to year and location to location, there are some components that you can count on happening at every ApacheCon.
- ApacheCon will consist of at least 4 tracks of technical content
- There will be a hackathon space where projects can gather to work on code, or work out community issues
- There will be a
State of the Featherpresentation by the President or someone that she/he delegates
- There will be a PGP key signing
- An Apache BarCamp will held, typically on the day before or after the main event
- The event is usually 3 days or more.
ApacheCon is the one annual event for the particular continent in question. As such, it draws an international audience, both in speakers and attendees.
The documentation around how to plan an ApacheCon may be found in the ApacheCon Playbook.
