We always look forward to opportunities to get together with our friends, colleagues and clients to discuss what’s new in geospatial technology. The FOSS4G conferences of recent years have consistently offered the best opportunity to do just that; that’s one reason why we’re so excited about this year’s FOSS4G North America conference.
Last year we had a pretty big hand in organizing the inaugural DC conference, the event went so well that it’s become an annual event. This year we’ve stepped back from the day-to-day planning but we’re still helping out on the program committee, and we’re happy to support the conference as gold sponsors.
We’ll be sending a pretty large contingent to Minneapolis; nine OpenGeo presentations were accepted and we’ll be teaching four workshops. We’re looking forward to an exciting (and busy!) week and hope to see you there. Don’t forget to register to attend; we hear spots are filling up quickly. And if you’ll be in Minneapolis make sure to come by our exhibition table, you never know who you’ll run into.
Interested in hearing us speak? Want to enroll in a workshop? The preliminary program has been announced and the times and dates of specific talks will be posted soon. Scroll down to see list of what we’ll be up to at FOSS4G-NA:
