ApacheCon Europe 2012 Evening Events

A number of events will be taking place in the evenings around ApacheCon Europe 2012, of varying degrees of formality. We invite all projects taking part in ApacheCon Europe to organise things! Support is available to help you with securing a venue (see below), announcing the event (here + on the day), and possibly with some drinks too (but no promises just yet...).

If you are attending the event, and looking for what to do in the evenings, please check back here again soon one projects have announced their plans.

If you're a project who'll be at ApacheCon, please pick a suitable venue from the available ones below, book it, and then list your events below!

Monday 5th

After the Hackathon on the Monday, VMWare are kindly sponsoring a Committers and Hackathon Welcome reception! This is open to all Apache Committers, and all attendees of the Hackathon. To find out where to go, please head along to the Hackathon on the Monday, and we'll announce the plan late afternoon. (If you're coming late, we'll also post to committers@ a little before)

Tuesday 6th

On the Tuesday evening, straight after the last talk, we have a welcome reception! Kindly sponsored by Adobe, and supported by the ASF. This will feature drinks (beer, wine, soft drinks) and some pretzel snacks. It will start right after the talks end, and run until the evening community events kick off. There will be a key signing after the welcome reception, open to all but strongly recommended to anyone who's a release manager / might be one in future. Please see for details + signup.

Apache Women BoF

Encouraging women participation in ASF. This BoF hopes to find out and engage more female and more contributors in ASF. Please come join us!

We may meet, get to know each other first, and build our connections. We may also share the projects we involves, discuss the current situation of female participation and maybe future plan to encourage more female contributors into ASF. We may also have fun with beers, food, salad, girlish chats, etc.. Any idea or suggestion is welcome.

All female attendants are considered invited!

Register this event! (or at 0F Reception ask Mellissa)

Available Venues to Book

Sinsheim has a number of different venues available to host evening events, of varying sizes and styles. Projects are advised to check the list below, work out the best location for them, and then ring up and book to secure your space!

There are a number of venues in Sinsheim in the town center. Most are on / just off one of two streets, Bahnhofstraße and Hauptstraße. Bahnhofstrasse (Station Street) is the pedestrianised street which runs from the station north to Hauptstraße (Main Street), while Hauptstraße is the main East-West shopping street in town running. Venues are all along Bahnhofstraße, and on Hauptstraße from Hotel Bär west for around 200m.

In addition to all the city center venues, the Hotel Sinsheim also has a bar and some meeting spaces (paid for), and the Technical Museum also has spaces for events and meetups (paid for). These latter two are likely to be of most interest to projects where someone is Sponsoring the evening.
