The Apache Way - Nick Burch, Quanticate
The "Apache Way" is the process by which Apache Software Foundation projects are managed. It has evolved over many years and has produced over 100 highly successful open source projects. But what is it and how does it work?

In this session we'll discover at how an Apache project is (and isn't!) managed. We will see how the foundation provides an technical and legal infrastructure for each project, and how the Apache Way provides the governance scaffolding for individual projects. This provides the framework for Apache projects which are then free to apply the Apache Way to ensure their project succeeds.

Having attended this session you will have a better understanding of the inner workings of both the foundation and its projects. With this understanding you will be better equipped to engage with and benefit from Apache projects.

From the Incubator to TLP: A Case Study of Community Metrics for Apache Aurora and Apache Mesos - David Lester, Twitter
Understanding what drives growth in our open source communities can and should inform project decision making. But how can we measure the health and growth of Apache projects? How useful are metrics such as web traffic, committer activity, JIRA issues, and patches to provide insight? And how do project milestones including feature releases, becoming a TLP, and press/marketing impact metrics month-over-month?

This presentation will introduce community metrics for Apache Aurora (currently in the Incubator) and Apache Mesos (TLP that graduated July 2013). As a case study, I'll provide an overview of metrics I've collected from incubation to today, and point to milestones in their histories that have led to substantial growth in activity. Attendees will come away with an understanding of how milestones impacted these metrics, and how they may evaluate the health of their own projects.
