The “Apache Way” is the process by which Apache Software Foundation projects are managed. It has evolved over many years and has produced over 100 highly successful open source projects. It generally works well! But not always..
In this session, we’ll follow on from the theory, and look more on the practice of how it works. We’ll look more at cases when it has worked well! And when it has had problems. We’ll see more of the boundaries, the things that can be changed, and those that are fixed firm rules. We’ll see how businesses can get involved, and where project independence means they need to step back. Licensing, Trademarks, Decisions, Marketing, Infrastructure and more.
If you want to take your knowledge of the Apache Way to the next level, or learn more on how to help your new project stay within it, this is the session for you!
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”.
