Apache's Joan Touzet to give keynote

Joan Touzet of the Apache Software Foundation has been chosen as the keynote speaker for this year's Texas Linux Fest.

Joan will speak on the topic "Evolve or Perish! Improving OSS Communities The Apache Way."

From the summary, we get a good idea of what to expect: "Change is an inevitable part of growing an open source community. In this talk, learn how one OSS community (Apache CouchDB) reinvigorated itself from a series of seemingly insurmountable challenges. With lessons learned from video gaming, theatre and music, CouchDB rediscovered The Apache Way and turned a toxic environment into a positive, supporting place for positive change."

Texas Linux Fest runs from Aug. 21-23 in San Marcos, Texas. For more information, visit http://2015.texaslinuxfest.org
