This year is no exception! CartoDB will be at FOSS4G-NA





This is going to sound extreme  but without open source software there would be no internet as we know it. That's right. Everyday we utilize a technology built on collaborative software that only gets better and more powerful the more open and secure it becomes. Each year a conference celebrating the community and collaborative nature of open source tech happens and we couldn't be more thrilled to take part.

CartoDB has been participating and [sponsoring] the premier conference on free and open source software for geospatial  better known as FOSS4G-NA  for several years now and this year is no exception!

FOSS4G-NA 2016 will take place in Raleigh  NC. From May 2-5  contributors  adopters  users  extenders  teachers  service providers  consumers  businesses  and research organizations will gather as a community to share their expertise and learn from each other.

This year CartoDB's lovable team  comprised of [Mamata Akella]  Senior Cartographer  [Stuart Lynn]  Map Scientist  and [Santiago Giraldo]  Civic Technologist  will be in attendance and giving some very insightful and interesting talks on topics like:
