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:
