With ApacheCon North America 2019 taking place 9-12 September and now less than three months out, we want to draw your attention to a few highlights:

Schedule Now Available

The full program is now available online at https://www.apachecon.com/ and features talks representing dozens of our projects. Through hands-on sessions, keynotes, real-world case studies, workshops, hackathons, BarCamps, and more, participants will learn about Open Source development "The Apache Way", in a deliberately intimate, collaborative, vendor-neutral environment. Program categories and project tracks will include Big Data, Content Delivery, Geospatial, IoT, Machine Learning, Streaming, and more.

Meet Our Keynote Speakers

We are excited to announce that ApacheCon keynotes will include award-winning author and futurist David Brin, "father of Java" James Gosling, and 10-year-old CoderBunnyz/One Billion Kids Can Code founder Samaira Mehta. These professionals will share their expertise on a wide range of topics and deliver innovative insights that you can bring back to your organization. As part of this year's conference, ApacheCon will include dynamic discourse with select ASF founders as well as special 20th-anniversary events and activities.
