Martin recently announced that we will be holding an OSGeo British Columbia meet-up in Vancouver on July 27. We have timed this to coincide with GeoWeb; it falls on the Tuesday evening after the workshops are over and before the conference sessions start.
This session is open to all, so if you’re going to be at GeoWeb, or are in the area and want to hang out and eat pizza with some Cool GeoGeeks (oxymoron?) RSVP on the wiki!
We’re also looking for some presentation ideas; if you’ve got a burning desire, then please propose a topic on the wiki.
GeoWeb is one of the best generalist geospatial conferences I have been to. There is as much value in the calibre of attendees as in the quality of the technical sessions.
The last day for early bird registration for GeoWeb 2010 at reduced rates is June 20, so get cracking!
Snark: Perhaps the conference should have been entitled “The Importance of Metadata”? ;)
Hey, if you’re coming to GeoWeb in Vancouver later next month, why not get together with the OSGeo BC Local Chapter for a mostly-informal meeting on Tuesday night?
Right now, the agenda is pretty basic: a couple technical presentations, brief chapter business, and pizza all at the Sierra Systems offices a few blocks from the GeoWeb conference.
If you’re interested in coming, or possibly presenting, sign up for our mailing list and let us know so that we can handle the vast numbers :)
