Cape Town is currently hosting the 2008 Free and Open Source Software for Geospatial (FOSS4G) conference, an annual gathering of developers and users of open source geospatial software from around the world to discuss new directions, implementations and growing business opportunities in the field of open source geospatial software.
Conference Theme for 2008 is “Open Source Geospatial: An Option for Developing Nations“.
Was it worth? Definitely yes.
Being side by side with the heroes of osgeo and finally meet in person legends like Frank (GDAL) and Chris (OpenLayers) was a tremendous experience. I was pleasantly surprised … they are actually very nice guys
Biggest lesson learned? Internet connections, supposedly the best in Africa, suck
Now everyone knows. And hopefully for a few weeks I will not be asked to upload any 500Mb file
Next … some details about my activities at FOSS4G2008!
