ApacheCon US 2008

Posted by Jim Jagielski on Friday, October 31. 2008 in ASF

On Sunday, I'll be leaving to attend ApacheCon US 2008, which is located in New Orleans. I'm really looking forward to the conference, which I'll also be presenting at as well. In fact, this is one of the busier ApacheCons, having 4 presentations (the State Of The Feather, Apache Nuts to Bolts (which I'm co-presenting with Bill Rowe and Rich Bowen), Sponsoring the ASF and Advanced Reverse Proxy in Apache 2.2). Plus, it looks like a lot of meetings, interviews and other brikabrak going on as well, so it promises to be a pretty full week. As always, I'm also looking forward to seeing and spending time with so many friends, people who I don't get the opportunity to see nearly often enough. As much as I really enjoy the technical exchange, I also like the deep social aspects of ApacheCon as well. We know how to code, but we also know how to kick back and enjoy ourselves. Are you going to ApacheCon? You should!

I was so busy traveling and pushing out 2.2.10 that I didn't even blog about it. Well, better late than never: Apache HTTP Server 2.2.10 is released... enjoy.

Hot off the stove: Apache HTTP Server 2.2.9. Yum. Good pudding.

The ASF just finished our annual members meeting. During the meeting we elected in a new board and new members. The list of new members isn't public yet, allowing time for them to be contacted, etc... But the roster of the new board can be announced now. It is:
   Bertrand Delacretaz    Justin Erenkrantz        J. Aaron Farr
   Jim Jagielski          Geir Magnusson Jr.       William A. Rowe, Jr.
   Sam Ruby               Henning Schmiedehausen   Greg Stein
Of the above, Bertrand is the "new guy", taking over for Henri Yandell who decided not to run again this year. Congrats!

Amsterdam and ApacheCon EU 2008

Posted by Jim Jagielski on Saturday, April 5. 2008 in ASF

If you follow PlanetApache, the fashionable thing to be doing now is talking about ApacheCon EU 2008, either regarding one's preparations on getting there, what you will be doing while there or comments regarding the ongoing, internal discussions regarding ApacheCon in general.... think I'll jump right on in! For me, the hardest part about getting prepared is syncing my MacBook and MacPro. I use my MacBook pretty much only when traveling, and do everything else on my MacPro. So when it's time to be away for awhile, I need to rsync a bunch of stuff. And this takes time. A loooooonnnnnnngggggg time. I'm sure there are easier ways to do this, but I do it so infrequently that I deal with the pain and move on. Then of course there is the actual event of traveling itself. As I've previously blogged about, this is very much a non-productive time for me. So I see travel time pretty much as wasted time, and, to be honest, when things are busy, I can't waste any of it. So even though I try, I know that I'm falling behind. Combine this with the facts that (1) traveling is no longer fun or easy and (2) I get quite anxious flying, especially large distances, that "getting there" is the worse part about "being there." Once at Amsterdam, I'm looking forward to the week. As with most people, I'll be staying at the Moevenpick, Amsterdam City Centre. Look for me. In addition to my 2 talks, I'm going to be attending several sessions (reminder to self: sign up to be session chair!) and will be hanging out at the Covalent/SpringSource booth when I can. I'm sure I owe you a beer!
