Apachecon is the official global conference series of the Apache Software Foundation (ASF). As a prestigious open source feast, apachecon has attracted much attention in the open source community and is also one of the well-known activities in the early stage of the open source movement.
As early as 1998, before the establishment of ASF, apachecon has attracted participants at all levels to explore “tomorrow’s technology” in more than 300 Apache projects and their different communities. Also at this session, developers who developed httpd services gathered together and decided to establish the Apache Software Foundation.
First event was held in San Francisco, CA, October 1998 (the ASF incorporated ~6 months later).
Apachecon is held once a year, usually in Europe or North America. It is a great opportunity for Apache developers to communicate, discuss and meet offline. It is also a rare occasion to share ideas and stir up ideas. Show the latest development and emerging innovation of Apache project through hands-on implementation, keynote speech, practical case study, training, hacking activities, etc.
This year, in order to better serve the rapidly growing Apache users and contributors in the Asia Pacific, the apachecon organizing committee and the Apache Software Foundation are pleased to announce that,The first apachecon online conference for Asia Pacific time zone apachecon Asia Conference will be held online from August 6 to 8, 2021。
Now please follow me and see what wonderful presentations will be made in this year’s keynote speech!
