Introducing a new level of sponsorship at ApacheCon: the Apache Community Sponsor!
Now the community members of a single Apache Project (e.g., Flex) or category (e.g., IoT) have the opportunity to contribute single-source or pooled funds towards its presence at ApacheCon. This can represent a collective of contributors comprising organizations and individuals, as long as the minimum financial commitment of $15K is met.
The sponsorship may be coordinated internally from within an Apache community (e.g., CloudStack) or activity area (e.g., IoT). Contributors will be credited in the Sponsor listing boilerplate (see example below):
Apache IoT Community
The Apache IoT community builds upon a foundation of more than two dozen Apache projects, from Calcite to Karaf to Storm, plus several innovations undergoing development the Apache Incubator, such as Mynewt and Gossip.
