The all-volunteer ASF oversees nearly one hundred fifty leading Open Source projects, including Apache HTTP Server - the world's most popular Web server software, powering more than 130 Million Websites worldwide.
Today, more than 300 individual Members and 2,300 Committers successfully collaborate to develop freely available enterprise-grade software, benefiting millions of users worldwide: thousands of software solutions are distributed under the Apache License; and the community actively participates in ASF mailing lists, mentoring initiatives, and ApacheCon, the Foundation's official user conference, trainings, and expo, taking place 1-5 November 2010 in Atlanta, Georgia.
The ASF is funded by individual donations and corporate sponsors that include AMD, Basis Technology, Facebook, Google, HP, Microsoft, Progress Software, VMware, and Yahoo!. Additional sponsors include Matt Mullenweg, AirPlus International, BlueNog, Intuit, Joost, and Two Sigma Investments.
