Theo Schlossnagle To Keynote ApacheCon 2013

Apache products power more than half the Internet, petabytes of data, teraflops of operations, billions of objects, and enhance the lives of countless users and developers. ApacheCon brings developes and users together to explore key issues in building Open Source solutions "The Apache Way." With hundreds of thousands of applications deploying ASF products and code contributions by more than 3,500 Committers from around the world, the Apache community is recognized as among the most robust, successful, and respected in Open Source.

OmniTI's CEO, Theo Schlossnagle has been involved with the ASF for more than a decade. His keynote, "Scaling: Lessons Learned and Their Applications to Apache Culture," lessons learned during the past 15 years of building highly scalable systems.

I've seen my fair share of failures. Some are fascinating, some are embarrassing, some are grotesque, all share something fundamental. The lessons learned exploring the pathology of these failures can be applied to more than just operations and systems design," said Schlossnagle, "Corporate structure, software development and even community structure suffer from the same weakness.

The 2013 conference theme, “Open Source Community Leadership Drives Enterprise-Grade Innovation,” focuses on professionally directed, relevant presentations that demonstrate real-world solutions to specific challenges.

Theo's presentation is scheduled for February 26th. More information and registration information can be found at ApacheCon 2013.
