Press Release, Wednesday 9 February 2000


Leading Technology Experts from IBM, Sun Microsystems and Collab.Net Focus on Industry Support and New Apache Initiatives

Delaware, RI. - February 9, 2000 - The Apache Software Foundation (ASF) announced today three powerhouse keynotes at next month's ApacheCon 2000, the ASF's first official Apache user conference, running March 8-10 at the Caribe Royale Resort in Orlando, Florida. ApacheCon 2000 is rapidly becoming a major focal point within the Apache community, drawing together the most respected technology vendors, Apache scholars and pundits. This year's stellar line-up of presenters include Alfred Z. Spector, senior technical strategist for Application Frameworks and former GM of marketing & strategy for IBM's middleware business, Brian Behlendorf, founder and CTO of Collab.Net, and president of the ASF, and George Paolini, vice president, Java Community Development, Sun Microsystems.

     "ApacheCon 2000 is the key forum for the Apache developer and user community to meet, greet, and define new directions and initiatives for the Foundation," said Brian Behlendorf, president of the ASF. "This conference is designed to give this community the context and support it needs to effectively use and advocate server-side open source technologies."

     On Thursday, March 9 from 11:15am - 12:00 noon, Alfred Z. Spector will present the opening keynote on The Web and Technology Fusion. Spector's compelling presentation will draw on examples from both industry initiatives and IBM development to describe the opportunities and major challenges associated with this complex, but rich and ever more powerful Web infrastructure.

     On Thursday, March 9 from 5:30pm - 6:15pm, Brian Behlendorf will present the State of the Foundation giving an in-depth perspective on how the ASF established itself and in a short amount of time has accomplished leaps and bounds given the resources available. Behlendorf will give his viewpoint on the events of the last year, as well as his outlook on where the ASF will need to go into the next year.

     In his keynote on Friday, March 10 from 11:15am - 12:00 noon George Paolini will present Sun's Apache Initiatives. Fundamental to Sun's software strategy is the continued support of the ASF and its community of developers. Paolini will explain how partnerships with the ASF are designed specifically to provide fast, best-of-breed development of essential Java technologies for developers in the most open and collaborative way possible while ensuring immediate mass distribution.

     With sold out exhibits, education sessions, keynotes, BOFs and networking opportunities, ApacheCon 2000 is globally recognized as "the place" where trends, innovations and new Apache initiatives are explored and defined.
