http://www.apachecon.com/ - 14 August 2000 - The Apache Software Foundation
(ASF) today announced 37 speaker sessions for this autumn's ApacheCon
Europe 2000, the first European conference and exhibition for
Apache-related and open-source software. The event, sponsored by Covalent
Technologies, IBM, Sun Microsystems, Oracle and ID-PRO will be held at the
Olympia conference centre, London between 23-25 October, 2000.

ApacheCon Europe 2000 will provide a European focus for the Apache
developer community, bringing together the key technology vendors, senior
Apache figures and open-source followers and observers from around the
globe, in response to the growing European interest in open-source software.

Among ApacheCon Europe 2000's line-up of presenters are:

- Ryan Bloom, Senior Software Engineer for Covalent Technologies, will
provide insights into the lastest version of the server - Apache 2.0;

lead developer of the mod_perl Apache module, will provide an overview of
the new mod_perl version 2.0-dev;

negotiation module;
- Tobias Ratschiller, a new media consultant in Italy, will discuss PHP

IBM's decision to drop its proprietary HTTP server in favor of Apache 2.0,
will discuss improvements in Apache 2.0 for Windows;
- Kirill Bolshakov, working toward his PhD at Saint Petersburg State
Technical University in Russia, will outline concepts to enable application
service providers (ASP) to host untrusted Java/XML/XSP-based applications;
- Stas Bekman , author of the mod_perl Guide and PerlMonth columnist, will
offer a tutorial, "Getting Started with mod_perl"; and
- Theo Schlossnagle, who is pursuing his PhD at John Hopkins University,
will discuss his work on the mod_backhand load-balancing module for Apache.
"ApacheCon Europe 2000 is the only event in Europe, where the Apache
developer and user community can meet to shape the future of Apache and
open-source software movements," said Rasmus Lerdorf, ASF Board Member and
presenter of the Introduction to PHP session. "Our conference is designed
to provide the European open-source community, with all necessary resources
for Apache-related initiatives and to serve as a forum for the continued
evolution of the open-source movement in Europe".

Apache-related and various other freeware exhibits, speaker sessions,
keynote addresses and informal Birds-of-a-Feather sessions are all on
offer, making ApacheCon Europe 2000 the only European opportunity this year
