FOSS4G North America 2019

April 11, 2019 • #

Next week Joe and I will be out in San Diego for FOSS4G-NA 2019. This’ll be my first one since I think 2012. There’s always an excellent turnout and strong base of good folks to catch up with. This year they’ve put together a B2B and Government Theme day to kick it off, which to my knowledge is a new thing for an event typically focused on the eponymous free, open source, and community-driven projects.

FOSS4G-NA 2019

I thumbed through the agenda to pick out some topics I’m interested in catching this year:

  • Open source for utilities and telecom
  • OpenStreetMap and WikiData
  • Open source in higher education
  • PDAL
  • OpenDroneMap
  • Digital twin” technology for infrastructure
