Apache Software Foundation Announces Community Over Code Event

Apache Software Foundation

WILMINGTON, DE — The Apache Software Foundation (ASF) announced this week the next iteration of its flagship event, ApacheCon, now named “Community Over Code.” Community Over Code will be the annual convention of the ASF, showcasing content from many of the project communities at the ASF.

Community Over Code will be held in Halifax, Nova Scotia October 7-10, 2023. The call for presentations is open now through July 13, 2023.

This year, Community Over Code will feature four days of sessions, with tracks focusing on Search, Big Data, Internet of Things, Community, Geospatial, Cassandra, Financial Tech, and many other topics. Each evening will also feature Birds of a Feather (BoF) sessions, where communities will have an opportunity for freeform discussion and planning around our various projects.

“The new name of our event reflects a defining core value of the ASF: that an open source community is ultimately more vital than open source code,” said Rich Bowen, VP Conferences, ASF. “Communities of all kinds of contributors from any walk of life are what make open source strong. Whether you contribute code or service, every person’s contributions make us who we are. We believe our flagship event should reflect this as we celebrate our 25th year.”

ASF stated that more information about Community Over Code will be forthcoming soon, as the organizers work to put together another informative and collaborative event for the ASF and the broader open source community.
