Apache Week at LinuxWorld

Apache Week will be at the LinuxWorld Conference and Expo in New York at the end of this month. You'll be able to find Apache Week's current editor, Mark Cox, at the Red Hat stand, and he'll be on-hand to talk about all things Apache. We'll also be running a special issue of Apache Week with everything we find at the expo related to Apache. The show runs from 30th January to 2nd February 2001, and entry to the exhibits can be obtained with a free pass if you register in the next few days at www.linuxworldexpo.com

O'Reilly seeks Open Source presenters

It's cold and wet in England right now; so what better than to look forward to a summer in San Diego, host of the O'Reilly Open Source Convention. Last year we were overwhelmed by the choice of 13 simultaneous tutorial sessions and nearly 2000 conference attendees. This year the conference runs from July 23-27 with nine tracks including Perl, PHP, and of course Apache. O'Reilly are currently looking for presenters, so if you are interested check out the conference web site
