The Apache Software Foundation (ASF) is established in 1999 as a charitable organization overseeing over 350 Open Source projects.

We will start with the origin of the ASF, introduce its governance model and key community processes, The Apache Way. We will debunk some of the most popular myths around the ASF, and give an overview on what it *really* takes to be a new project there.
