I’m honored to announce that I will be taking the position of chair of the program committee for FOSS4G North America in 2015. The open source geospatial landscape is rich with new ideas and technologies as well as advancements and applications of well established projects and practices. I’m excited to work with the community and guide the program committee through calling on participants from all corners of our slice of the open source world to share with us the news from the forefront of geospatial technology, to build a meeting of the leaders of our field, and to create an informative, exciting program. Thank you to Andrew Ross and the rest of the conference committee for entrusting me with the task of ensuring this conference program is a great one.
The FOSS4G North America conference will be taking place from March 9th to 12th (save the date!), and will be held alongside EclipseCon. It will be held in California, in a town called Burlingame which is minutes from the San Francisco International airport.
As part of the community, I would love to hear any input on what topics you’d like to see in this year’s conference or qualities you think this conference program should have. Email me at email@example.com and let’s start a discussion.
