BoFs: Apache UIMA - Marshall Schor, IBM
The Apache UIMA BoFs is for all people using UIMA and/or interested in its development. We'll hear from the PMC chair, including an informal discussion of the many new aspects of the latest core release, and how you can contribute to UIMA. We'll share with each other what we've found interesting in using this framework in our various use cases. This is a great opportunity to get acquainted with and learn about the UIMA community, become more involved, and to influence UIMA's future directions.

This BoFs may help expand and strengthen the community of UiMA users and developers, will explain the many new aspects of the current core release, and may encourage a wider use of UIMA.  Apache UIMA users and developers and others interested in UIMA and its community and future directions are encouraged to attend.

BoFs: TEALS (Technology Education And Literacy in Schools) - Kevin Wang, TEALS

Did you know that less than 1% of the 4 million AP Exams taken last year was for Computer Science?   

At Apache everyone is a volunteer. You already know how powerful volunteering can be. TEALS (teask12.org) is another way of volunteering, but in this case to build a stronger IT sector in the future by teaching the next generation of Computer Scientists and Software Engineers. Through TEALS you can help high school build sustainable Computer Science programs throughout the country. These students are the future of the IT industry.  By team teaching with an experienced classroom teacher, you will be able to hand-off the course materials and knowledge to them.   They will then be able to maintain and grow a sustainable CS program in the school on their own.

This BoFs is a chance to find out more about TEALS. Come along and ask whatever questions you have, suggest schools looking for help, offer some volunteer time, suggest ways in which the ASF might further help programs like TEALS and much more.
