The Apache Software Foundation to present on Apache software projects in government, cybersecurity, and more at Roadshow and Open Source Job Fair at George Mason University. The Apache Roadshow is held in cooperation with the Center for Assurance Research & Engineering (CARE) of the Volgenau School of Engineering at George Mason University. The multidisciplinary school maintains a dual pre-eminence in both information technology and engineering, and seeks to graduate students who will take initiative, step up, and leave the planet better than they found it.

Apache Roadshows are part of the official ASF conference series: they are smaller events with a more focused program and regional community engagement. The DC Roadshow program features two dozen presentations on Apache projects across the following tracks: government, cybersecurity, CARE projects, and career development, in tandem with one of the first Open Source Software job fairs.

Topics include The Apache Way, analytics, Big Data, Cloud, cybersecurity, governance, healthcare, machine learning and natural language processing (NLP), and security, featuring Apache projects such as Airflow, Cassandra, cTAKES, Daffodil (incubating), Drill, Fortress, Hadoop, Ignite, NiFi, Rya, Tomcat, and more.

Speakers include representatives from The Apache Software Foundation, Apifocal, Benefits Data Trust, BMC Software, Capital One, Cloudera, ConSensys, DataNexus, Deloitte, Deutsche Bank, Fannie Mae, George Mason University, GridGain, IEEE, MITRE, Symas, Thomson Reuters, Total Child Health, Tresys, US Naval Academy, Verizon Media, and WSO2, among others.

The Roadshow's opening keynote, "Why Open Source is Vital in IT", will be presented by Jim Jagielski, co-founder of the ASF, Project Management Committee member of Apache HTTP Server and Apache Tomcat, and Open Source Chef at ConSensys.
