Apache BarCamp Washington, D.C. - This Weekend!

After quite a bit of work, things are rapidly coming together for Apache BarCamp Washington, D.C. this Saturday! 

If you're curious about Apache, open source software, or technology in general, I do hope you'll be joining us - registration is free, of course.  Don't worry about meals, thanks to some generous sponsors, your appetite won't get in the way of your learning and collaborating.

As with all BarCamp's, the agenda will ultimately be set by the attendees, but it appears we'll have interest in at least these topics: Apache Mahout, Apache Tika, Apache Lucene/Solr, Apache Accumulo, Apache Open Office, the Apache Way, designing actor/supervisor systems, Puppet, and more...

Apache BarCamp DC - Join Us!

Registration is open and we're just over 3 weeks from the first ever Apache BarCamp Washington, D.C.! The [free] tickets are going fast and space is limited so if you haven't already, click on over to the registration and join us!

Like all BarCamp's, the agenda will ultimately be determined by who attends but we do anticipate some great discussion on some favorite Apache-related topics from Apache Mahout to Apache Lucene, who knows, maybe an Apache Accumulo  talk will slip in!  Also, come learn how the Apache Software Foundation works, what the Apache Way is, and how to contribute to open source software in general.

I hope to see you there!
