The biggest annual event for me and OSGeo is fast approaching. The FOSS4G conference event, held this year in Sydney, Australia, will be held in October. I’d love to meet you there if you would like to chat about open source, GIS, cartography, programming and all such related topics. Attend a workshop to learn to make maps or run web mapping sites. Or just come to hear talks from leaders in the open source geospatial community.
You’ll find friends from all programming language communities there showing you how they get things done. From government to industry to NGO and the hobbyist users – all will find content that is appealing and useful.
Open source geospatial toolkits are used behind many of the largest GIS software packages and web mapping sites. Learning these tools helps build your own personal set of tools for doing the job well.
Hope to see you there!
