THE APACHE SOFTWARE FOUNDATION BRINGS OPEN-SOURCE SOFTWARE CONFERENCE
ApacheCon Europe 2000 Will Provide Focus For Apache And Open-Source
Software Developments For The European Community
LONDON, 22 May, 2000 - The Apache Software Foundation (ASF) today
announced ApacheCon Europe 2000, the first European conference
and exhibit for Apache-related and open-source software, will
take place at the Olympia Conference Centre in London on 23-25
Key members of the ASF include recognized leaders and innovators
in the open-source software community. The ASF, a not-for-profit
organization developing and supporting open-source projects worldwide,
is the home of several industry-defining initiatives, including
the award-winning Apache Server - the most widely used server
product on the Internet today - as well as XML-Apache, Jakarta
and Java-Apache projects.
ApacheCon Europe 2000 will provide a European focus to enable
all those involved in open-source software projects to meet many
of the Apache developers, get an update on the latest advances
and provide input to this exciting debate.
"We are pleased to present ApacheCon Europe 2000 in response
to growing European interest in open-source software, and ensure
that the key players in the European open-source community can
bring their unique expertise to bear on issues and activities
that will play a vital role in the development of computing,"
said ASF Chairman Roy T. Fielding. "We anticipate ApacheCon Europe
2000 to be the event of the year in open-source software in Europe
and are currently lining up leading industry keynote speakers."
ApacheCon Europe 2000 follows a highly successful ApacheCon 2000,
the first Apache users' conference held in Orlando Florida in
March, where keynote speakers included Alfred Z. Spector, Senior
Technical Strategist for Application Frameworks and former General
Manager of Marketing & Strategy for IBM's middleware business,
Brian Behlendorf, Founder and CTO of Collab.Net, and President
of the ASF, and Patricia Sueltz, President, Software Products
and Platforms, Sun Microsystems.
