What is the Apache Hackathon? The Hackathon is what you get when you mix an open space, reliable wifi, plenty of power, and a room full of Apache Committers together. Always informal and lots of fun, the Hackathon is an opportunity for Apache developers and users to meet in person, discuss project plans, squash bugs and hack code.

The Apache community welcomes everyone to join in this free codefest event! Apache Hackathon is held over the two days prior to the main three-day conference, 2-3 November, Monday and Tuesday. Also special this year, BarCampApache will be held in conjunction with the Hackathon.
