Officially Scheduled Meetups

The best place to see the official schedule is on the main ApacheCon schedule!

Note: Room assignments are subject to change, and will be clearly published at the conference site. The below grid is for planning use.

All MeetUps will take place in the Bayshore Grand Ballroom

Offsite Meetups

If you are hosting an Apache-related Meetup during the week of ApacheCon NA 2011 between 5th and the 12th November, please feel free to add the name, brief description, and a link to your Meetup page here. We would suggest that most Meetups try to occur during the 5 days of the Conference, but events on the weekends before and after can work too!

What is a Meetup?

Read our detailed description of ApacheMeetups - they're similar to other Meetups, but focused on Apache projects or technologies - and they're often held in the evenings onsite at ApacheCon!

Other options for discussions and coding

As well as the evening Meetups, there are a few other ways for projects to get involved, code, discuss and share.

If you're planning to do an open Hackathon at any point (i.e. one open to people who are not currently committers), please email the ApacheCon planners at planners-2011-na@apachecon.com to let us know. We can help advertise this, get a sign made up to direct people etc. Projects are encouraged to do this on the Monday, and it's a great way to draw in fresh blood to the project!

Available Rooms

We have rooms available for meetups on the Lobby and 2nd Floors. To see the space available, and floor plans with size details, review:
