The Apache Way - Practice - Nick Burch, Apache Software Foundation
The "Apache Way" is the process by which Apache Software Foundation projects are managed. It has evolved over many years and has produced over 100 highly successful open source projects. It generally works well! But not always..

In this session, we'll follow on from the theory, and look more on the practice of how it works. We'll look more at cases when it has worked well! And when it has had problems. We'll see more of the boundaries, the things that can be changed, and those that are fixed firm rules. We'll see how businesses can get involved, and where project independence means they need to step back. Licensing, Trademarks, Decisions, Marketing, Infrastructure and more.

If you want to take your knowledge of the Apache Way to the next level, or learn more on how to help your new project stay within it, this is the session for you!

But We're Already Open Source! Why Would I Want to Bring my Code to Apache? - Nick Burch, Apache Software Foundation
So, your business has already opened sourced some of its code? Great! But now, someone's asking you about giving it to these Apache people? What's up with that, and why isn't just being open source enough?

In this talk, we'll look at several real world examples of where companies have chosen to contribute their existing open source code to the Apache Software Foundation. We'll see the advantages they got from it, the problems they faced along the way, why they did it, and how it helped their business. We'll also look briefly at where it may not be the right fit.

Wondering about how to take your business's open source involvement to the next level, and if contributing to projects at the Apache Software Foundation will deliver RoI, then this is the talk for you!
