Last week in Sinsheim (Germany) was the ApacheCon Europe 2012. ApacheCons are events organized by the Apache Software Foundation, run by developers involved in the Apache Software Foundation, for all the developers out there building on top of ASF software.
This year IKS attended the event representing Apache Stanbol in the community after its recent graduation as Apache Top-Level Project. Attendees of Linked Data track had the opportunity to witness different technical talks about Stanbol:
- Jena based Implementation of a ISO 11179 Meta-data Registry, Ali Anil Sinaci
What Apache Stanbol can Do for You, Fabian Christ
- Extracting Custom Entities with the Stanbol Enhancer, Rupert Westenthaler
- Semantic Indexing and Search for Content Management Systems, Suat Gonul
Besides that, we attended the presentation of a proposal for incubating a new Apache project based on the Linked Media Framework. It’s really nice to see how Semantic Technologies continue growing under the umbrella of the Apache Software Foundation.
