FOSS4G and PGCUS are the premiere conference series for the open data movement which seeks to bridge society, developers, educators, activists, companies, and governments together on the subject of free and open sources for geospatial software.
CartoDB will be participating at the FOSS4G-North America and PGConf US 2015. This year CartoDB will sponsor both events and will also have booths.
FOSS4G-NA will be held March 9-12 in San Francisco. CartoDB team members will be available to answer any questions while demoing CartoDB’s latest innovations.
Our Map Scientist, Andy Eschbacher, will be giving a presentation called ‘Everyone’s a Geographer.’ Andy plans to share his expertise in education and mapping. The session is designed for beginners but not limited to the novice.
In the afternoon, check-in with CartoDB’s CSO - Chief Science Officer, Andrew Hill. Andrew will be hosting a discussion titled, ‘What is a Map?’ Andrew’s talk focuses on how open data has changed the way we map.
Although not a member of the CartoDB team, Nick Martinelli will be forging ahead with a very cool presentation on ’Carto CSS and UTF Grids for Collaborative Mapping’ - using FOSS4G.
PGConf US will be held on March 25-27 in New York City. This will be CartoDB’s third time in attendance. We believe that the PGConf US can help move PostgreSQL into a new era of usage, but we need your help in bringing in attendees.
Join the CartoDB team and see how we hosted a version of PostgreSQL and PostGIS to enable incredible map making. Attendees can also meet our CEO, Javier de la Torre, to learn how our company is expanding in the NYC and U.S. community.
CartoDB is offering a special discount on attendance price when you tweet, blog, or comment CartoDB on social media - just mention the code: CARTO10.
CartoDB will also have some exclusive CartoDB swag in the fund raising auction!
PGConf US 2015 is a not for profit conference hosted by the local NYC PostgreSQL User Group (NYCPUG) and run by the United States PostgreSQL Association.
