Recent Projects

Apart from our own projects FOSS Backstage and Berlin Buzzwords, we take on various events and conferences from other organizations. 

ApacheCon EU 2019

As the organizing team behind ApacheCon EU 2019 we worked with the Apache Software Foundation (ASF) to realize their goal of a European conference dedicated to Apache projects. ApacheCon is the place to come to learn what Apache projects are doing. Projects can strengthen their communities here and build bridges to other projects. We discussed the latest innovations in containers, cloud, DevOps, IoT, servers, web frameworks, and many other Apache projects and communities in a collaborative, vendor-neutral environment.
