The voice of The Apache Software Foundation

ApacheCon Seville 2016 – The Apache Way – Practice – Nick Burch

February 9, 2017

The Apache Way – Practice – Nick Burch

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!

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”.

Since December last year many people have been following the journey being made by Aaron and his family from the United States to Hong Kong through their blog.

Earlier this month the Apache Software Foundation took the unusual step of releasing an Open Letter detailing an issue that the Apache Harmony project was having with Sun Microsystems. In order to find out more about the background to this letter and the issues it addresses, I spoke with Geir Magnusson.
