Attracting Project Contributors While Staying Independent - Shane Curcuru, Apache Software Foundation
Want to find new ways to draw in contributors to your project? Looking to attract ideas and attention from some of the corporate vendors, but don't want to lose your independence? Don't know how to approach your employer's plans to launch BigCo's SuperLucene product?

Learn how to improve your project's brand, drawing in newcomers as productive contributors, and defending your brand from aggressive vendors. Dealing fairly and firmly with companies mis-using your good reputation seems hard, but it doesn't need to be.

Learn about what uses of Apache brands that are OK, versus infringing uses hungry vendors try to use - and how to stop them. The strong independent reputation of your project and Apache overall relies on every PMC policing their own brand effectively and fairly. The Trademarks Committee is here to help!

Recruiting for Apache - Bob Paulin
A robust Apache community has provided software developers with a one stop show for quality open source software. Great software requires a healthy community. How can we continue to ensure that the Apache community continues to grow and thrive? By continuing to bring great people into projects as contributors, committers, and members of course! But wait ... how do we do that? This talk focuses on different ways to engage developers to become more involved in open source software. I'll share my experience working with clients, user groups, and even kids to promote involvement in open source. Take these experiences home to help find like minded people and promote open source in your area.

Apache Yetus - Helping Solve the Last Mile Problem - Allen Wittenauer, Altiscale
In this time of rapidly growing software projects and software capabilities, where it is expected for “software to eat the world,” there is still a huge challenge going from source code to a tested, fully functional release. This is the “last mile problem,” ensuring that vision and coding become real, deployable software. To help address this problem, members of the extended Apache Hadoop/”big data” ecosystem have joined forces to create tools that reduce the burden of pre-commit testing, release note compilation and interface documentation. In this talk, Allen Wittenauer, a PMC member of the Apache Yetus project, will discuss the various components that make up the Yetus toolset, as well as how Apache Hadoop and other projects are using Apache Yetus to improve release quality.
