Up Next: STATE OFTHE FEATHER
Good morning, Budapest!
My name is Shane Curcuru, and I’d like to welcome everyone to Apache: Big Data Europe.  We are very excited to have you all here and thank you all for attending.
We’d also like to thank all the sponsors for our event here in the lovely Corinthia Budapest, without whom this event wouldn’t have been possible.
Our Diamond Sponsors are: HortonWorks, IBM, and Jahia, our Platinum Sponsor: Pivotal,  and our Silver Sponsors, Criteo Labs and Red Hat. Thank you event sponsors!
STATE OF THE FEATHER
Vice President, Brand Management
The Apache Software Foundation
Shane Curcuru
Hi - I'm Shane Curcuru, and I'm the Vice President of Brand Management for the Apache Software Foundation. For our first keynote, we have the State of the Feather - a very brief overview
of the growth and successes of the ASF over the past year, to help you understand what Apache as a whole is doing these days.
But first, I want to make one small correction on this slide... See that title? It's really not that important. The Apache Way is to allow everyone who productively contributes to the project a
voice and a vote - we have a very flat organization.
So let’s make that slide say what I really am:
STATE OF THE FEATHER
Volunteer
Shane Curcuru
A Volunteer. A key differentiator for the ASF and our Apache way is that all the governance positions and all the project direction decisions are done by volunteers within each community.
The individuals doing the work in any one particular project - or within the foundation as an organization - are the ones setting the direction for that project.
Obviously many committers are being paid by their employer as an investment in various project's technologies, but from the Apache point of view, we're all volunteers.
The Apache Software Foundation (ASF), a
non-profit public charity provides
software at no charge
for the public good.
The ASF does this by providing support to
our many independently governed Apache
project communities of volunteers.
What is Apache’s true mission? Our mission is to provide software at no charge, for the public good. We provide useful software for people - to help the world. Software Apache produces
and gives away for free is used by people everywhere around the world, every day, to help humans do more work with computers. And it’s critical to ensure this software is freely
available and is truly useful to all users, everywhere.
Now the thing that many people don't think about is that the Foundation itself doesn't directly work on this mission It’s the many Apache projects that create each of the various software
products, We accomplish our mission by providing support to the many independently governed Apache project communities.
The ASF is here to take care of the paperwork, licenses, trademarks, and provide services to our communities. We ensure the legal framework is taken care of so they can concentrate on
the code. We don’t guide or direct the projects - we allow the projects to govern themselves and choose what they want to work on, and provide an environment where they can do that
work.
COMMUNITY
----------------------
CODE
We consider ourselves not
simply a group of projects
sharing a server, but rather a
community of
developers and users.
Project communities set their own direction.
The ASF exists to support them.
We have a saying: Community Over Code. Think of this as the secret sauce of open source at Apache -The Apache Way of doing things.
For Apache, the most important thing in a project is the community, and every project community is different. Ensuring that the individuals actually doing the work in a project have the say
over project direction ensures that their goals and actions are aligned.
Now in a volunteer-based organization, we should be sure to give lots of thanks.
THANKYOU SPONSORS!
Platinum Sponsors
Since we’re about community, let’s take the time to thank an important part of our community - our sponsors.
These are all our Platinum sponsors, who sign up to donate a fixed amount annually to our budget. We’re lucky to have many recurring sponsors who continue to come back and provide
us with a stable funding base, both many large corporations, as well as at least one personal individual (in the upper left).
Sponsors also give us resources within our communities - most of these organizations also assign staff members to contribute to Apache projects because they are using many Apache
software products.
THANKYOU SPONSORS!
Gold, Silver, and Bronze Sponsors
Bronze: Cloudsoft Corporation,Accor, BasisTechnology, Bluehost,Talend, Samsung,Twitter
Gold
Silver
Thank you to our Gold, Silver, and Bronze sponsors, all of whom donate funds for our income. Even though the ASF only does organic fundraising with volunteers, we’ve been seeing a
good growth in the number of new or upgraded sponsors
What's interesting here is we're starting to see sponsors sign up who are not traditional software shops. We have a small but growing number of companies and individuals who just want
to give back in recognition of all the value they've seen from using Apache software projects.
THANKYOU SPONSORS!
Infrastructure
Sponsors
Plus: thanks to the many volunteers
who help our crack infrastructure team!
The last set of sponsors we need to thank don’t give us money, but something just as important: bandwidth.
All of these service providers donate free bandwidth, hosting, system administration, and site design and maintenance services, along with free cloud hosting credits, for the Foundation
and to various projects.
These sponsors provide the services that allow our small paid staff to leverage their skills to provide services to all projects.
We also want to thank the many Apache volunteers who also help build and run many of our project systems - they add a great deal of expertise and work to our small core of paid staff.
Let’s have a round of applause for all of our sponsors.
167 active Apache projects
43 Podlings (upcoming projects)
25 dormant Attic projects
The ASF provides services for the entire project lifecycle:
PROJECTS GROWTH
So what has Apache been doing this past year? We’ve been continuing our steady growth in new projects for the last ten years in terms of total software projects governed. Each blue
line denotes a new top level project that came to Apache, and the yellow line shows the total number of Apache projects over time.
And very importantly for our mission, Apache We cover all parts of project lifecycle:
New podlings - or new initiatives or projects applying to join the Incubator - are where we provide mentoring and work with project communities on independent governance. What you
might not realize is that the primary work in the incubator is stewardship of the community, not code completion.
Once a podling or new project shows they have a strong and diverse community, we announce them as a Tope Level Project, or TLP.
Mature technologies not being actively developed are moved to the attic: the non-profit nature of the Foundation will ensure that the project’s assets will be hosted and publicly available for
the long future.
TECHNOLOGY DIVERSITY
• Big Data
• Cloud API & management
• Content Management
• Database & NoSQL
• Web & mobile development
• Messaging
• Geospatial / Scientific
• Dev / BuildTools
• Network servers
• OSGi
If you have the community,Apache is
happy to host any technology!
Here at Apache: Big Data conference, it’s important to remember that Apache projects span virtually all software technology areas today.
Along with more than a dozen major big data projects, Apache has multiple projects in all of these technology areas - in many cases, industry leading technologies. We also have a broad
array of big data and other podlings, or new project initiatives.
The expertise of volunteers in our many Apache project communities spans software - and beyond.
COMMITTER GROWTH
Apache Committers are:
Software Engineers, Sysadmins,
Database Administrators,
Network Architects, Developer
Advocates - all the technical titles
you might imagine, plus...
✦ CIO of a major financial company
✦ Airline Pilot of a national airline
✦ Technical Writer at software vendor
✦ Space Flight Dynamicist at aerospace vendor
✦ Principal Scientist at NASA
But we’re not just growing in projects, we’re growing in volunteers. Again, we can see a steady growth in new Apache committers working on one of our projects, all the way back to 2000.
We’re now around 5000 committers - or people who have a direct say and write access to one or more Apache projects.
While plenty of our committers are coders as you might expect, we have a growing number of committers who’s skills are not the traditional coding or software positions.
WHERE WE ARE
Apache is a truly global organization. Not only is our software used around the world - as well as in several spacecraft out in the solar system today! - but our committers come from around
the world.
Global - yes, that includes New Zealand. Also note strong growth in India/China as open source development catches up their to their existing open source use.
Note: we still don't have global coverage in South America or Africa - we can still do better, especially with non-native english speakers, and with developers who might be building a different
kind of application than we might here.

So - how much does the foundation spend to keep all this running? Here’s a quick breakdown of our current fiscal year budget. Our primary income is annual donations from our formal
sponsorship program, although we have a good number of smaller one-time individual donors of many kinds.
Our primary spending - as you might expect - is on infrastructure, which powers the servers and services to keep our projects running. We also provide a number of other paid services for
projects that ask for them. Now these are real numbers: our current annual budget is just over one million dollars US.
Now compare the million dollars we spend on infrastructure to the total value of Apache project code in just your organization. Pretty big, huh? Imagine that for everyone in your industry,
and around the world. Bang for buck is incredibly high. We say Apache is an innovation machine, and we turn a small amount here into a big value for the world.
One important note: Apache never spends budget on project code development. All the code our great Apache projects produce is created by our volunteer committers..
You can see our total spending budget has been increasing year over year to keep up with growth - kudos to our infrastructure team for finding the right mix of cloud services versus
hardware to actually slightly reduce our budget this year while still providing more services.
INFRASTRUCTURE
• 194VMs / servers in 7 colos & 8+ clouds
• 120 different technical services provided to projects & to public
• 5 paid staff to manage everything
• 10,000 INFRA tickets closed in past 12 years
• 26TB weekly traffic (not including mirror downloads)
• 13,600,000 weekly unique visitors
• ~1 billion emails sent annually
http://status.apache.org/
How do we support all of this code?
Our amazing infrastructure team - of only 5 paid staff - provides almost 200 machines and VMs and over 100 services. Services here include everything to manage a software project, in
some cases including multiple versions of tools like bugtrackers and cloud environments.
The 26TB of weekly traffic does not include software downloads, which are handled by our two mirror systems.
And that almost billion emails annually is just ham, not spam!
But those are just big numbers - what do they mean?
INFRASTRUCTURE
ON ONE DAY LAST WEEK,
Apache websites & services served
2,245,423 unique users
from more than
11,454 cities in
206 countries/states *
* all 196 UN states,
plus territories
How can we measure a direct impact on the public good from what Apache does?
One of our infrastructure ponies counted up all the server logs from one day last week and found:
In just one day last week, over two million unique users accessed data from the Foundation or an Apache project from every single UN recognized country on the planet. Not only does the
software Apache gives away power half of the internet, developers and users alike around the world use our project websites for reference and help every single day.
These are people learning about or working on Apache projects - remember, this doesn’t show how many people are *using* Apache software everyday.
MEDIA RELATIONS
• Total Press releases: 12
• Informal Announcements: 230
• Industry Events,Awards, and Outreach liaison: 9
• Media Requests: 46 
• Analyst Briefings: 51
• Analyst Reports: 202
Plus: new Annual & Quarterly Reports,
major site redesign for www.apache.org
Our Marketing & Press team assists all Apache projects with publicity and analyst relations, as well as fielding and routing queries for the Foundation itself. Along with assisting projects with
press releases and making contact with analysts, the press team has done an amazing job on our annual report, as well as modernizing and improving the overall foundation website.
Note that this is one of the few paid positions within the ASF. Providing timely responses as well as assistance translating between the many engineers of our projects and the analyst and
press community is a critical service that we can provide to our projects.
Note: since most of our projects are made of engineers, it’s key to have someone who can help translate for the press and analysts.
OTHER SERVICES
• Travel Assistance Committee
• Legal and licensing support
• Brand management & trademark registration
• Executive Assistant & corporate Secretary
• Foundation-wide fundraising
• Apache swag (giveaways) at events to build community
• Volunteer-provided services:
• Community Development

State of the Feather - Apache:Big Data - Budapest

  • 1. WELCOME! by: Shane Curcuru,Vice President, Brand Management The Apache Software Foundation Up Next: STATE OFTHE FEATHER Good morning, Budapest! My name is Shane Curcuru, and I’d like to welcome everyone to Apache: Big Data Europe.  We are very excited to have you all here and thank you all for attending. We’d also like to thank all the sponsors for our event here in the lovely Corinthia Budapest, without whom this event wouldn’t have been possible. Our Diamond Sponsors are: HortonWorks, IBM, and Jahia, our Platinum Sponsor: Pivotal,  and our Silver Sponsors, Criteo Labs and Red Hat. Thank you event sponsors!
  • 2. STATE OF THE FEATHER Vice President, Brand Management The Apache Software Foundation Shane Curcuru Hi - I'm Shane Curcuru, and I'm the Vice President of Brand Management for the Apache Software Foundation. For our first keynote, we have the State of the Feather - a very brief overview of the growth and successes of the ASF over the past year, to help you understand what Apache as a whole is doing these days. But first, I want to make one small correction on this slide... See that title? It's really not that important. The Apache Way is to allow everyone who productively contributes to the project a voice and a vote - we have a very flat organization. So let’s make that slide say what I really am:
  • 3. STATE OF THE FEATHER Volunteer Shane Curcuru A Volunteer. A key differentiator for the ASF and our Apache way is that all the governance positions and all the project direction decisions are done by volunteers within each community. The individuals doing the work in any one particular project - or within the foundation as an organization - are the ones setting the direction for that project. Obviously many committers are being paid by their employer as an investment in various project's technologies, but from the Apache point of view, we're all volunteers.
  • 4. The Apache Software Foundation (ASF), a non-profit public charity provides software at no charge for the public good. The ASF does this by providing support to our many independently governed Apache project communities of volunteers. What is Apache’s true mission? Our mission is to provide software at no charge, for the public good. We provide useful software for people - to help the world. Software Apache produces and gives away for free is used by people everywhere around the world, every day, to help humans do more work with computers. And it’s critical to ensure this software is freely available and is truly useful to all users, everywhere. Now the thing that many people don't think about is that the Foundation itself doesn't directly work on this mission It’s the many Apache projects that create each of the various software products, We accomplish our mission by providing support to the many independently governed Apache project communities. The ASF is here to take care of the paperwork, licenses, trademarks, and provide services to our communities. We ensure the legal framework is taken care of so they can concentrate on the code. We don’t guide or direct the projects - we allow the projects to govern themselves and choose what they want to work on, and provide an environment where they can do that work.
  • 5. COMMUNITY ---------------------- CODE We consider ourselves not simply a group of projects sharing a server, but rather a community of developers and users. Project communities set their own direction. The ASF exists to support them. We have a saying: Community Over Code. Think of this as the secret sauce of open source at Apache -The Apache Way of doing things. For Apache, the most important thing in a project is the community, and every project community is different. Ensuring that the individuals actually doing the work in a project have the say over project direction ensures that their goals and actions are aligned. Now in a volunteer-based organization, we should be sure to give lots of thanks.
  • 6. THANKYOU SPONSORS! Platinum Sponsors Since we’re about community, let’s take the time to thank an important part of our community - our sponsors. These are all our Platinum sponsors, who sign up to donate a fixed amount annually to our budget. We’re lucky to have many recurring sponsors who continue to come back and provide us with a stable funding base, both many large corporations, as well as at least one personal individual (in the upper left). Sponsors also give us resources within our communities - most of these organizations also assign staff members to contribute to Apache projects because they are using many Apache software products.
  • 7. THANKYOU SPONSORS! Gold, Silver, and Bronze Sponsors Bronze: Cloudsoft Corporation,Accor, BasisTechnology, Bluehost,Talend, Samsung,Twitter Gold Silver Thank you to our Gold, Silver, and Bronze sponsors, all of whom donate funds for our income. Even though the ASF only does organic fundraising with volunteers, we’ve been seeing a good growth in the number of new or upgraded sponsors What's interesting here is we're starting to see sponsors sign up who are not traditional software shops. We have a small but growing number of companies and individuals who just want to give back in recognition of all the value they've seen from using Apache software projects.
  • 8. THANKYOU SPONSORS! Infrastructure Sponsors Plus: thanks to the many volunteers who help our crack infrastructure team! The last set of sponsors we need to thank don’t give us money, but something just as important: bandwidth. All of these service providers donate free bandwidth, hosting, system administration, and site design and maintenance services, along with free cloud hosting credits, for the Foundation and to various projects. These sponsors provide the services that allow our small paid staff to leverage their skills to provide services to all projects. We also want to thank the many Apache volunteers who also help build and run many of our project systems - they add a great deal of expertise and work to our small core of paid staff. Let’s have a round of applause for all of our sponsors.
  • 9. 167 active Apache projects 43 Podlings (upcoming projects) 25 dormant Attic projects The ASF provides services for the entire project lifecycle: PROJECTS GROWTH So what has Apache been doing this past year? We’ve been continuing our steady growth in new projects for the last ten years in terms of total software projects governed. Each blue line denotes a new top level project that came to Apache, and the yellow line shows the total number of Apache projects over time. And very importantly for our mission, Apache We cover all parts of project lifecycle: New podlings - or new initiatives or projects applying to join the Incubator - are where we provide mentoring and work with project communities on independent governance. What you might not realize is that the primary work in the incubator is stewardship of the community, not code completion. Once a podling or new project shows they have a strong and diverse community, we announce them as a Tope Level Project, or TLP. Mature technologies not being actively developed are moved to the attic: the non-profit nature of the Foundation will ensure that the project’s assets will be hosted and publicly available for the long future.
  • 10. TECHNOLOGY DIVERSITY • Big Data • Cloud API & management • Content Management • Database & NoSQL • Web & mobile development • Messaging • Geospatial / Scientific • Dev / BuildTools • Network servers • OSGi If you have the community,Apache is happy to host any technology! Here at Apache: Big Data conference, it’s important to remember that Apache projects span virtually all software technology areas today. Along with more than a dozen major big data projects, Apache has multiple projects in all of these technology areas - in many cases, industry leading technologies. We also have a broad array of big data and other podlings, or new project initiatives. The expertise of volunteers in our many Apache project communities spans software - and beyond.
  • 11. COMMITTER GROWTH Apache Committers are: Software Engineers, Sysadmins, Database Administrators, Network Architects, Developer Advocates - all the technical titles you might imagine, plus... ✦ CIO of a major financial company ✦ Airline Pilot of a national airline ✦ Technical Writer at software vendor ✦ Space Flight Dynamicist at aerospace vendor ✦ Principal Scientist at NASA But we’re not just growing in projects, we’re growing in volunteers. Again, we can see a steady growth in new Apache committers working on one of our projects, all the way back to 2000. We’re now around 5000 committers - or people who have a direct say and write access to one or more Apache projects. While plenty of our committers are coders as you might expect, we have a growing number of committers who’s skills are not the traditional coding or software positions.
  • 12. WHERE WE ARE Apache is a truly global organization. Not only is our software used around the world - as well as in several spacecraft out in the solar system today! - but our committers come from around the world. Global - yes, that includes New Zealand. Also note strong growth in India/China as open source development catches up their to their existing open source use. Note: we still don't have global coverage in South America or Africa - we can still do better, especially with non-native english speakers, and with developers who might be building a different kind of application than we might here.
  • 13. ANNUAL BUDGET 4% 5% 12% 13% 61% Infrastructure $636,000 Administration $135,000 Media & Publicity $124,000 Travel Assistance $50,000 Brand $39,000 Other $57,000 (Figures rounded to thousands) Year to Year Total BudgetYear to Year Total Budget 2013 $774,000 2014 $811,000 2015 $1,186,000 2016 $1,043,000 Budgeted Expenses 2015Budgeted Income 2015 Sponsors Individual Donors Other Income $815,000 $60,000 $17,000 So - how much does the foundation spend to keep all this running? Here’s a quick breakdown of our current fiscal year budget. Our primary income is annual donations from our formal sponsorship program, although we have a good number of smaller one-time individual donors of many kinds. Our primary spending - as you might expect - is on infrastructure, which powers the servers and services to keep our projects running. We also provide a number of other paid services for projects that ask for them. Now these are real numbers: our current annual budget is just over one million dollars US. Now compare the million dollars we spend on infrastructure to the total value of Apache project code in just your organization. Pretty big, huh? Imagine that for everyone in your industry, and around the world. Bang for buck is incredibly high. We say Apache is an innovation machine, and we turn a small amount here into a big value for the world. One important note: Apache never spends budget on project code development. All the code our great Apache projects produce is created by our volunteer committers.. You can see our total spending budget has been increasing year over year to keep up with growth - kudos to our infrastructure team for finding the right mix of cloud services versus hardware to actually slightly reduce our budget this year while still providing more services.
  • 14. INFRASTRUCTURE • 194VMs / servers in 7 colos & 8+ clouds • 120 different technical services provided to projects & to public • 5 paid staff to manage everything • 10,000 INFRA tickets closed in past 12 years • 26TB weekly traffic (not including mirror downloads) • 13,600,000 weekly unique visitors • ~1 billion emails sent annually http://status.apache.org/ How do we support all of this code? Our amazing infrastructure team - of only 5 paid staff - provides almost 200 machines and VMs and over 100 services. Services here include everything to manage a software project, in some cases including multiple versions of tools like bugtrackers and cloud environments. The 26TB of weekly traffic does not include software downloads, which are handled by our two mirror systems. And that almost billion emails annually is just ham, not spam! But those are just big numbers - what do they mean?
  • 15. INFRASTRUCTURE ON ONE DAY LAST WEEK, Apache websites & services served 2,245,423 unique users from more than 11,454 cities in 206 countries/states * * all 196 UN states, plus territories How can we measure a direct impact on the public good from what Apache does? One of our infrastructure ponies counted up all the server logs from one day last week and found: In just one day last week, over two million unique users accessed data from the Foundation or an Apache project from every single UN recognized country on the planet. Not only does the software Apache gives away power half of the internet, developers and users alike around the world use our project websites for reference and help every single day. These are people learning about or working on Apache projects - remember, this doesn’t show how many people are *using* Apache software everyday.
  • 16. MEDIA RELATIONS • Total Press releases: 12 • Informal Announcements: 230 • Industry Events,Awards, and Outreach liaison: 9 • Media Requests: 46  • Analyst Briefings: 51 • Analyst Reports: 202 Plus: new Annual & Quarterly Reports, major site redesign for www.apache.org Our Marketing & Press team assists all Apache projects with publicity and analyst relations, as well as fielding and routing queries for the Foundation itself. Along with assisting projects with press releases and making contact with analysts, the press team has done an amazing job on our annual report, as well as modernizing and improving the overall foundation website. Note that this is one of the few paid positions within the ASF. Providing timely responses as well as assistance translating between the many engineers of our projects and the analyst and press community is a critical service that we can provide to our projects. Note: since most of our projects are made of engineers, it’s key to have someone who can help translate for the press and analysts.
  • 17. OTHER SERVICES • Travel Assistance Committee • Legal and licensing support • Brand management & trademark registration • Executive Assistant & corporate Secretary • Foundation-wide fundraising • Apache swag (giveaways) at events to build community • Volunteer-provided services: • Community Development • Incubator Mentoring • SecurityTeam Coordination The Foundation provides a number of other housekeeping services - the kinds of things that are important to get done on time to keep the organization running. Travel assistance committee - pays to bring in newer project contributors to help strengthen our communities. ... Hidden value- our volunteer services - not in our budget because they're not paid - include highly expert mentoring and community development for many different podlings and projects.
  • 18. WANT REGULAR UPDATES? • Monthly board reports are posted publicly https://www.apache.org/foundation/board/calendar • Subscribe to announce@apache.org • Read https://blogs.apache.org/foundation/ • Follow @TheASF Apache projects have their own blogs, mailing lists, and twitter handles too! If you’d like to keep tabs on what the foundation is doing, we have plenty of ways to do that. Remember - the Foundation provides support to our hundreds of projects - each of which has their own ways of keeping in touch. The best way to learn about your favorite project is to join their mailing list!
