Participants learn about Open Source development "The Apache Way", through hands-on sessions, keynotes, real-world case studies, hackathons, and more in a deliberately intimate, collaborative, vendor-neutral environment.
Dozens of Apache projects will be represented across dedicated categories and project tracks, including Airflow, Beam, Calcite, Cassandra, Flink, Hivemall (incubating), HTTP Server, Ignite, IoTDB (incubating), Kafka, MXNet, Mynewt, NiFi, Spark, Tika, Tomcat, Training (incubating), and more.
