Dutch angle on FOSS4G Denver

Tomorrow is going to be the first day of FOSS4G 2011 in Denver! As I mentioned in my previous posting about our choice of sessions, there will be quite a few people from the OpenGeoGroep in Denver, but of course, there are more people from the Netherlands attending the conference. Check out the tweets below to keep up with their take on what's happening at FOSS4G.

FOSS4G sessions: Webmapper's choice

FOSS4G Logo Less than a week to go until FOSS4G 2011 kicks off in Denver! Really looking forward to attending the conference after my first visit last year in Barcelona.

Admittedly, there were a few tough decisions to make in choosing one session over the other. Once there, I am pretty sure that some of the choices will change at the last moment! Anyway, it gives you pretty good insight into the work that we are doing here at Webmapper recently. Looking forward to seeing you in Denver! permanent link for this entry
