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:
