ApacheCon Europe 2007 - Registration Opening

Registration is now open for ApacheCon Europe 2007, the official conference and expo of The Apache Software Foundation, to be held in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, on 1-4 May 2007.

ApacheCon offers insight into the culture and community that develops and shepherds industry-leading Open Source projects, including Apache HTTP Server --
the world's most popular Web server software for ten years running. Drawing ASF Members, innovators, programmers, developers, vendors, thought-leaders, and users to experience the future of Open Source development, attendees meet, mingle, and exchange ideas with like-minded participants on groundbreaking technologies and emerging industry trends. Amidst technical presentations, informal networking, peer discussions, Birds-of-a-Feather sessions, and entertaining social events, conference highlights include:

-- Keynote Presentations from Steven Pemberton, Web usability Expert at and Chair, W3C XHTML and XForms Working Groups, and Dr. Margo Seltzer, Herchel Smith Professor of Computer Science, Harvard University Division of Applied Sciences.

Eclipse, Jakarta, LDAP, Portlets, Roller, Security, SpamAssassin, and WebDAV, as well as a look into projects from the ASF Incubator and Labs at the new ApacheCon Fast Feather Track.

-- Business Track featuring panel sessions, presentations, and case studies that address core Open Source business, marketing, standardization, community-building, and legal/licensing issues, as well as explore broader areas such as the Semantic Web, Web Services, Web 2.0, and mobile technologies.

-- ApacheCon Sponsor Events and Expo gives attendees direct access to industry-leading organizations such as Google (NASDAQ: GOOG), Black Hat, Covalent, the Eclipse Foundation, and the Java Community Process, as well as "first-looks" at new technologies from emerging players such as Hippo, Nexaweb, and Soapknox. The most influential platform for dialogue amongst the Apache community at large is about community interaction and fun -- from geeking, hacking, and relaxing in the Online Lounge to sharing drinks and ideas at various receptions to out-of-the-box public speaking at the Lightning Talks!
