This talk presents the organization and structure of the ASF as well as its basic principles of operation. Home to more than 150 open source projects, including some world-impacting ones, the ASF operates on surprisingly simple principles and values, and has proven itself over more than 15 years as an open organization that consistently releases high quality source code. We will describe the basic principles that enable the foundation's projects to operate in a neutral and open way, where contributors are empowered based on meritocratic principles instead of hierarchical or pay-to-play processes.

This talk will help you understand why some of the largest software companies collaborate with their competitors within Apache on critical parts of their software infrastructure and products, instead of doing things in their own corners - and greatly benefit from it.
