Welcome to the social networking site for ApacheCon NA 2011. Use this network to find and connect with people at the conference.
Head over to FeatherCast, where some amazing volunteers are posting audio recordings of all(?) sessions at this year's ApacheCon! Session audio is being posted during the day of most sessions as they're available, so check it out, and catch those other two talks you really wanted to attend during the day. Thanks to Rich, Cliff, and the other volunteers who've provided this great archive.
We're working on getting these online as soon as we can. They'll be posted onto Lanyrd at the end of the event; we may drop a few in before then. Thanks in advance for your patience if your favorite session's slide deck isn't online yet -- it will be.
Stressed at ApacheCon? Of course not - you're among friends, and there are plenty of people with an Ask Me! button to help. But if travel stress is still with you, or your hands are getting tired from your keyboard, then come by registration desk outside the expo area to get a massage from experts from the hotel's Vida Spa! Michael and Vita will be available for a quick back or hand massage during select breaks at ApacheCon: Wednesday, November 9... [read more]

For those of you who've arrived already, who fancies a spot of dinner tonight? It looks like Denman Street (almost at the end of our road) has plenty of good places to eat on it, do people want to meet in the hotel lobby at 7.30pm to go and find somewhere?
This year we'll again be running a Fast Feather Track at ApacheCon. For those who are new to the idea, the Fast Feather Track is were we give people a chance to present a 20 minute talk on something new / exciting / fun. It's a wonderful chance to spread the word about new incubating projects, new features coming out of existing projects, or new tools and technologies which make developing ASF projects easier! If you're interested in giving a 20 ... [read more]

We're about 4 weeks out now from ApacheCon, and we're in the process of working out which communities are interested in hosting a Meetup one evening at ApacheCon. These could be for just one projects, or they could be for several projects in a similar space who want to get together. The meetup could just be discussions, or it could have formal talks, perhaps a barcamp-style un-conference, a brain-storming session for the new release, or some comb... [read more]
