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.
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:
