Intro to Apache

Gnat told me this morning that I’ve been doing this talk at OSCon for 8 years. I think it’s actually 7, but, still, wow.

Somehow, today’s “performance” was actually kind of fun. It felt *very* tired the last time I did it. But I’ve rewritten a lot of the stuff, and it’s less tedious and more interesting. It’s also a lot more up-to-date than it was last time.

And it continues to have a non-zero number of interested people, so I expect I’ll keep doing it for at least a little while longer.

Apache httpd is definitely becoming “plumbing”, and as such, there’s not much “new and shiny” that I can put in these talks. But there’s still a little bit.
