We held an Apache track at GotoCon Amsterdam 2011 on Thursday 13th and Friday 14th October. On Saturday 15th, we then hold a hackathon and a small BarCamp in Amsterdam. This page is now of historic interest only, as the event has now passed, but may provide to be of help for those planning to set up future location-specific Apache Hackathons.


Apache Hackathon and hopefully BarCamp


Saturday 15th October, after GotoCon


In central Amsterdam: at the Hippo offices Krasnapolsky (which is the GotoCon venue), St John's II room


Likely 10am - 6pm, then out for dinner

We're asking people to sign up, so we can get an idea of the numbers expected, and the topics likely to be covered. Signup is open to all Apache committers, and anyone interested in getting involved in Apache (eg anyone on a dev list).

We're expecting to run a small number of Apache related BarCamp sessions (the exact number and topics depending on interest on the day). Alongside this, there will be a hackathon, where committers come together to work on new code, solve bugs, enhance documentation, or experiment with new ideas. Whether your project is hoping to work on something, or if you have an idea for something new, or if you'd just like to take part, you'll be very welcome. Do come along even if you've not got a specific project in mind to work on, those there will always welcome people helping out and getting involved!

GotoCon is kindly providing the venue and some lunch, and is covering some refreshments too, so it should be an excellent day! Please sign up if you'd like to come.
