The Complete Guide to the Apache Software Foundation

the apache software foundation logoThe Apache Software Foundation is a non-profit organisation that provides organizational, legal, and financial support for a broad range of open source software projects including the popular Apache HTTP Server. Although the HTTP Server is probably the most well known application supported by the Apache Software Foundation, and is tied directly to the creation of the foundation, there are dozens of projects listed on the Apache Foundation website web site.

The foundation is also responsible for the Apache License, which is one of many open source license agreements. All software produced by the Apache Software Foundation is released under the Apache License.
