Will the Apache Maturity Model Save Your Project? – Bertrand Delacretaz


The Apache Project Maturity Model ( http://s.apache.org/maturity-model ) was written to help explain how Apache projects work, in a modular way that allows it to be adopted partially by projects who operate outside of Apache. Will that model help save your fledgling project, or is that just a set of boring rules? Describing the reasoning behind the model’s items, with concrete examples from successful Apache projects, will help us find out and apply the model to our own projects in a helpful way.

Gender Diversity Analysis of Technical Contributions to Apache Projects – Daniel Izquierdo

Gender gap in the tech industry is a fact nowadays. Open source projects such as those under the umbrella of the ASF show this lack of women developing, although no actual numbers are provided.

This talk will focus on the contributions made by women to some of the Apache projects since the beginning (when possible!). This talk is specifically focused on technical contributions like commits. It is intended to be a quantitative analysis plus specific manual polishing process to help in the accuracy of the data.

Behind the Scenes of the Apache Software Foundation – Lars Eilebrecht

This presentation will give you everything you always wanted to know about the Apache Software Foundation (ASF), but were afraid to ask. It will show you that there is more than just the Apache web server, and provide you with information on how the ASF works and its history. The difference between membership and committership, who decides what, how elections take place, the technical infrastructure, project management committees, and the philosophy behind the incubator. Come and see behind the scenes of the Apache Software Foundation and let’s talk about “The Apache Way” and “Community over Code”.
