ApacheCon approaches

It doesn't seem possible, ApacheCon is less than a week away. CloudStack Collaboration Conference follows shortly. I am excited about seeing ApacheCon this year, the schedule is huge and contains a ton of interesting content. That actually may be a detriment - so much content it will make deciding what talks to see difficult.

Particularly interesting to me is the ton of big data talk. There are plenty of big data projects at the ASF, and those projects have managed to bring 5 days worth of big data content to ApacheCon, coupled with 3 days worth of Lucene/Solr content. Keeping in mind that the ASF is the home for the majority of open source big data projects and ApacheCon becomes a must-attend event if you care about big data.

But ApacheCon is more than just big data, there are tracks for cloud and mobile development, as well as perennial favorites like Traffic Server, and Tomcat. 28 tracks in total.

All of this content is great; and I look forward to learning a lot while I am at ApacheCon, but it ignores the most valuable reason that I am attending: the hallway track. Being able to converse with  many members of various Apache project communities is invaluable.

I hope to see you there.
