The Apache Software Foundation (ASF) is proud to announce that the first
ever Asian edition of ApacheCon will be held in Colombo, Sri Lanka from
August 15th to 17th, 2006.

This event creates a unique platform for the Open Source community to
come together to gain deep insight into techniques and methodologies
critical to the advancement of Open Source software, and gain skills to
optimize the power and versatility of Apache software. The first ever
Asian edition of this popular conference is specially designed to be
accessible and affordable for the Asian developer community.

The conference brings together ASF members, developers and contributors,
business people, and power users, across the world working with Apache
and related software, to participate in a leading-edge forum to exchange
ideas and network with peers.

The conference includes one day of intensive half-day tutorials, which
will offer actionable techniques and methodologies pivotal to the
increasing demand for Open Source software.

The main conference spans over two days offering a wide range of
beginner, intermediate and advanced sessions in a two track format. The
program consists of four world-renowned keynotes, sixteen technical
sessions, panels and BOF sessions. In addition, there is a designated
"hackthon" day allowing developers the opportunity to meet and hack on
various Apache projects. Finally, a full day of tutorials, consisting of
six half-day sessions gives attendees a chance to learn the nitty gritty
of various technologies from the experts themselves.
