"The most popular open source software is Apache…"

DZone, “What Open Source Software Do You Use?”

"Apache-style licensing may yield more adoption and money."

The ASF develops, shepherds, and incubates hundreds of freely-available, enterprise-grade projects that serve as the backbone for some of the most visible and widely used applications in computing today. Through the ASF's merit-based process known as "The Apache Way," more than 800 individual volunteer Members and 7,800+ code Committers across six continents successfully collaborate on innovations in Artificial Intelligence and Deep Learning, Big Data, Build Management, Cloud Computing, Content Management, DevOps, IoT and Edge Computing, Mobile, Servers, and Web Frameworks, among other categories.

APACHE IS …

OPEN: The Apache Software Foundation provides support for 300+ Apache Projects and their Communities, furthering its mission of providing Open Source software for the public good.

INNOVATION: Apache Projects are defined by collaborative, consensus-based processes, an open, pragmatic software license and a desire to create high quality software that leads the way in its field.

COMMUNITY: We are a community of developers and users of enterprise-grade, Open Source Apache projects used in every Internet-connected country on the planet.
