Tsinghua University school of software, is currently in a process of reformation and encourage students to acquire system building skills by joining and contributing to top-tier open source projects. Craig L. Russell, Chairman of the Apache Open Source Foundation, elaborated on the Apache way of organizing open source community in his presentation, including the history of Apache, how Apache works, why the ASF works, and the process from the incubator to graduation for an Apache project. This is the second time Craig presenting the Apache principles such as “community over code” in Tsinghua, by then, he was on the post of Apache secretary. Junping Du, Apache Member, Apache Hadoop PMC, Chairman of Tencent Open Source Alliance, introduced the Apache practice for engineers. Ning Jiang, Apache Member, Apache ServiceComb PMC, Director of Huawei Open Source Capability Center, gave a very gentle and inspiring tutorial for novice of open source projects. Liang Zhang, Apache ShardingSphere PPMC, a mathematician from JD.com Mathematics Department, shared the great experience of joining the open source community and the exploration of Apache Shardingshpere project. Xiangdong Huang, Apache IoTDB PPMC, a fresh new faculty member of Tsinghua University, host of the event, shared his experience of growing from a young student to an open source project backbone, and the Objective of Apache IoTDB project, which invites interested college students to join. At the end of the activity, Lin Liu, Associate Professor with Tsinghua University, Junping Du, Craig Russell, and Ted Liu (Apache Member and head of Kaiyuanshe) shared their views during their panel discussion on "open source education from the perspective of universities, enterprises, foundations and society".

FOUNDATION OPERATIONS SUMMARY First Quarter, Fiscal Year 2020 (May - July 2019) "We are excited to support The Apache Software Foundation, championing an organization that is delivering software for public good. Apache's software ... [More] is core to much of the Internet and is used by many of our customers and community."—Zaheda Bhorat, Head of Open Source Strategy, Amazon Web Services (ASF Platinum Sponsor and Targeted Silver Sponsor) > Conferences and Events: During Q1, we did not hold any official Apache events. We were actively planning for the following upcoming events: ApacheCon North America in September, and ApacheCon Europe in October. Upcoming events are always listed at events.apache.org and sponsorship opportunities are available for all upcoming events. Contact planners@apachecon.com with any questions. > Community Development: Throughout this quarter a lot of work has been done in helping support the preparations for ApacheCon NA and EU. With a 3 day Community track planned for ApacheCon NA and a 2 day Community track planned for ApacheCon EU, we helped co-ordinate and manage the CFP submissions to select the content for the tracks.   In early 2018, we setup a Redbubble store as an easy way for any of our ASF projects to order their own branded items such as t-shirts and mugs etc. In preparation for ApacheCon, many of our projects have asked for their logos to be added to the store so they can purchase a range of merchandise and promote their projects visually. As a regular GSoC mentor organisation, we have been invited to participate at the Mentor Summit in Germany. Two of our existing GSoC mentors have been chosen to attend. Following on from the discussions last quarter on ways to drive better diversity and inclusion, a separate mailing list has been established that will focus on discussing, defining and co-ordinating strategies to improve diversity and inclusion across the foundation. We are continuing to investigate opportunities for smaller Apache Roadshows in 2020 including the possibility of one in India. We have also been invited to participate with an Apache track in CCOSS 2019 in Mexico. Mailing list traffic has decreased this quarter probably due to the holiday season. > Committers and Contributions: Over the past quarter, 1,646 contributors committed 44,068 changes that amount to 17,190,978 lines of code across Apache projects. The top 5 contributors, in order, were: Andrea Cosentino (921 commits), Duo Zhang (906 commits), Claus Ibsen (748 commits), Jean-Baptiste Onofré (722 commits), and Mark Thomas (664 commits). All individuals who are granted write access to the Apache repositories must submit an Individual Contributor License Agreement (ICLA). Corporations that have assigned employees to work on Apache projects as part of an employment agreement may sign a Corporate CLA (CCLA) for contributing intellectual property via the corporation. Individuals or corporations donating a body of existing software or documentation to one of the Apache projects need to execute a formal Software Grant Agreement (SGA) with the ASF.  During Q1 FY2020, the ASF Secretary processed 188 ICLAs, 11 CCLAs, and 14 Software Grants. History of Apache committer growth can be seen at https://projects.apache.org/timelines.html > Brand Management: Operations — The work of the Brand Management team falls broadly into one of three categories: trademark transfers and registrations granting permission to use our marks addressing potential infringements of our marks The volume of work has remained steady this quarter. Registrations and transfers are lengthy processes but the tracking system we have put in place remains up to the task. This quarter has seen the usual collection of requests to use Apache marks for user groups, events, merchandise and publications with nearly all requests being granted, subject to our Trademark Usage Policy. Use of our marks for events is now dependent on the event having an acceptable anti-harassment policy. Registrations — A number of registrations came up for renewal this quarter. We review each renewal as it comes up and, as a result, opted not to some of those registrations. The remaining renewals are in now progress. Some registrations, particularly those outside the US, tend to be more complex. This quarter some of our registrations in China have required additional work to help them progress. Infringements — Potential infringements are brought to our attention from both internal and external sources. The majority of infringements we see are accidental and our project communities are able to resolve these quickly and informally with occasional input from the Brand Management team. A small number of issues take longer to resolve. We made progress on some of these this quarter and hope that that progress will continue next quarter. It was pleasing to see a number of PMCs successfully address potential infringements independently this quarter. As the ASF continues to grow, having PMCs that can operate more independently in this area helps the overall Brand Management capability scale to match the ASF's growth. And finally… The Brand Management team welcomes your comments and suggestions as well as any questions you might have. Please see https://www.apache.org/foundation/marks/contact for our contact details. > Infrastructure: Infrastructure has had an interesting quarter, combining a regular workload of upgrades, ticket handling, and project support, then needing to change gears for July to perform a full datacenter move to lower our costs. We spent a significant amount of time upgrading and improving our systems. The backup system was simplified in FY19Q3, and we took another pass at it this quarter to expand storage space and improve the tooling via the open source backuppc system. Numerous upgrades of services, such as Jira and Jenkins, were performed to keep us secure and up to date. One of the newer services we are testing is the use of a "Content Delivery Network" (CDN) for our projects' websites. A few projects are participating in a trial, and we will roll out wider usage later this year, after successful trials. Lastly, we have started a concerted effort to expand and diversify our CI/CD capacity. The continued growth of projects at the Foundation, and modern development trends towards CI/CD, have combined to create an ever-increasing demand for resources. We are increasing our system capacity, tracking projects' usage, and looking towards new types of systems and providers. > Financial Statement: > Fundraising: Fundraising continues to carry on smoothly. New sponsors are successfully onboarding and renewals are occurring without incident. In this quarter, we renewed and onboarded several sponsors smoothly. We also spent the quarter continuing our work on consolidating existing sponsorship agreements into our formalized foundation offerings. This helps to limit one-off processing and to keep operations as efficient as possible. We formalized a number of our event sponsorship/support activities into ongoing processes that are safe, repeatable, and comply with industry best-practices as we continue support of ApacheCon and our Roadshows. Another significant step for Fundraising this quarter was the introduction of form-based onboarding which helps keep data clean and helps enable further automation for the road ahead! We are delighted to report more than $10,000 in individual giving was donated to The ASF in addition to our foundation sponsors.

Open Source machine learning library in use at Citigroup, NetEase, and Singapore General Hospital, among others. Wakefield, MA —4 November 2019— The Apache Software Foundation (ASF), the all-volunteer developers, stewards, and ... [More] incubators of more than 350 Open Source projects and initiatives, announced today Apache® SINGA™ as a Top-Level Project (TLP). Apache SINGA is an Open Source distributed, scalable machine learning library. The project was originally developed in 2014 at the National University of Singapore, and was submitted to the Apache Incubator in March 2015. "We are excited that SINGA has graduated from the Apache Incubator," said Wei Wang, Vice President of Apache SINGA and Assistant Professor at the National University of Singapore. "The SINGA project started at the National University of Singapore, in collaboration with Zhejiang University, focusing on scalable distributed deep learning. In addition to scalability, during the incubation process, built multiple versions to improve the project’s usability and efficiency. Incubating SINGA at the ASF brought opportunities to collaborate, grew our community, standardize the development process, and more." Apache SINGA is a distributed machine learning library that facilitates the training of large-scale machine learning (especially deep learning) models over a cluster of machines. Various optimizations on efficiency, memory, communication and synchronization are implemented to speed it up and scale it out. Currently, the Apache SINGA project is working on SINGA-lite for deep learning on edge devices with 5G, and SINGA-easy for making AI usable by domain experts (without deep AI background). Apache SINGA is in use at organizations such as Carnegie Technologies, CBRE, Citigroup, JurongHealth Hospital, National University of Singapore, National University Hospital, NetEase, Noblis, Shentilium Technologies, Singapore General Hospital, Tan Tock Seng Hospital, YZBigData, and others. Apache SINGA is used across applications in banking, education, finance, healthcare, real estate, software development, and other categories. "So glad to see the first Apache project focusing on distributed deep learning become a Top-Level Project," said Beng Chin Ooi, Distinguished Professor of National University of Singapore who initialized the SINGA project, and a member of the Apache SINGA Project Management Committee. "It is essential to scale deep learning via distributed computing as the deep learning models are typically large and trained over big datasets, which may take hundreds of days using a single GPU." "I am glad to witness the graduation of Apache SINGA as a TLP," said Gang Chen, Professor and Dean of Zhejiang University and Dean of ZJU-NetEase research lab. "We will continue to contribute to the development and use it for industry applications such as smart fabric printing, e-commerce recommendation and smart cities." "Apache SINGA has a flexible distributed training framework," said Sheng Wang, Research Scientist at the DAMO Academy of Alibaba and a member of the Apache SINGA Project Management Committee. "SINGA can implement multiple popular distributed training strategies, including synchronous and asynchronous training. It achieved excellent scalability in comparison with other deep learning platforms." "Apache SINGA has been applied to support many different healthcare applications at MZH Technologies," said Zhongle Xie, CTO of Hangzhou MZH Technologies and a member of the Apache SINGA Project Management Committee. "The performance of disease diagnoses based on X-Ray images could even pass the radiologists. We also built a food recognition app using SINGA to help patients monitor their food intake and log the nutrition automatically." "We are working with cardiologists in Fuwai Hospital, Beijing, China, to develop a machine learning/deep learning cardiovascular disease prediction model, using cardiovascular risk factors and other indirect factors such as diet and exercise," said MZH Technologies co-founder and Beijing Institute of Technology Professor, Meihui Zhang. "We are also using Apache SINGA for data cleaning and integration." "Besides scalability, SINGA team is continuously improving the library by adding new features to make it easier to use," said Moaz Reyad, Postdoctoral Researcher at Université Grenoble Alpes, and a member of the Apache SINGA Project Management Committee. "For example, SINGA has a sub-component called SINGA-auto (original name is Rafiki), which provides AutoML features like automatic hyper-parameter tuning." "We would like to thank all our mentors for guiding the project and all contributors for helping on this project from incubation to graduation," added Wang. "Deep learning and other AI technologies are changing the world from many aspects. We welcome newcomers to join our community to make contributions to this exciting field!" Availability and Oversight Apache SINGA software is released under the Apache License v2.0 and is overseen by a self-selected team of active contributors to the project. A Project Management Committee (PMC) guides the Project's day-to-day operations, including community development and product releases. For downloads, documentation, and ways to become involved with Apache SINGA, visit http://singa.apache.org/ and https://twitter.com/ApacheSINGA About the Apache Incubator The Apache Incubator is the entry path for projects and codebases wishing to become part of the efforts at The Apache Software Foundation. All code donations from external organizations and existing external projects enter the ASF through the Incubator to: 1) ensure all donations are in accordance with the ASF legal standards; and 2) develop new communities that adhere to our guiding principles. Incubation is required of all newly accepted projects until a further review indicates that the infrastructure, communications, and decision making process have stabilized in a manner consistent with other successful ASF projects. While incubation status is not necessarily a reflection of the completeness or stability of the code, it does indicate that the project has yet to be fully endorsed by the ASF. For more information, visit http://incubator.apache.org/ About The Apache Software Foundation (ASF) Established in 1999, the all-volunteer Foundation oversees more than 350 leading Open Source projects, including Apache HTTP Server --the world's most popular Web server software. Through the ASF's meritocratic process known as "The Apache Way," more than 730 individual Members and 7,000 Committers across six continents successfully collaborate to develop freely available enterprise-grade software, benefiting millions of users worldwide: thousands of software solutions are distributed under the Apache License; and the community actively participates in ASF mailing lists, mentoring initiatives, and ApacheCon, the Foundation's official user conference, trainings, and expo.
