Track Description

Must be suitable for program, one paragraph, identify Who, What and Why. This must be oriented towards the technologist familiar with this subject matter, one who is not yet familiar but would be interested if they knew what the technology was, and the decision maker who would approve their attending this conference!

Are you looking for software for modern web publishing and content management? The content technology track covers web-based Apache projects ranging from content applications to web frameworks, protocol libraries and unstructured content storage solutions.

Targeted mainly to server side web developers, this track presents the latest Apache software in this space, and gives the attendees a chance to meet the developers for in-depth discussions and hands-on examples.

Target Audience

This is for the planners use and marketing. Please list companies who might be interested in sponsoring this content, and include contact name and email, if known, for Delia to contact them.

SUGGESTIONS

FREE STUFF!

During the day, on Monday and Tuesday, we will run a free BarCamp alongside the traditional Hackathon. The space set aside for the BarCamp and Hackathon is truly massive, and should have a very open feel without excessive background noise. By colocating these events, we can enable attendees to jump between hacking together and attending BarCamp sessions.

Free evening activities include MeetUps and BOFs. These will be organized by the PMCs, and can be scheduled for any night from Sunday through Thursday. Wednesday night is set aside for the free BIG FEATHER BIRTHDAY BASH! and Welcome Reception. We expect to attract many commuting attendees from the Bay Area, both for the main program (paid registration required) and for all of these free events and opportunities.

REALITY CHECK

Of course the economic realities do not permit the Conference Producer to cover the costs of everyone who has information to present to such a diverse audience of this many topics. For this conference, for each hour of main track material, the Producer will be covering one (1) hotel night plus one (1) conference pass, and will provide an additional (1) night for overseas travelers. However, the conference will not be paying airfare for speakers from the US and Canada, and will work on a limited case-by-case basis with those from overseas. And with so many friends in the Bay Area, those who are not covered can consider staying with fellow ASF members who are willing to host.

If you're not sure how this will work for you, or what it means when you start getting creative with the program, please check with your planning-mentor.

AND FINALLY

If you need help or guidance, you can contact the planning team any time on planners-2009-us@apachecon.com

You've also been assigned a planning-mentor, who's there as your PMC's personal support system for this conference as mentioned above.

We're looking forward to the most exciting ApacheCon ever, but we need your help to do it!
