We are looking forward to a hot geo summer here in Central Europe with both the German FOSSGIS (this year in conjunction with the annual AGIT conference) and the international FOSS4G just a few weeks away. It’s going to be exciting, and I still have a lot of talks (and a keynote) to prep for both events ;-)
If you speak German and want to enhance your geo skills, the FOSSGIS program offers some great opportunities and there is still the chance to sign up for a couple of great FOSSGIS workshops:
- The QGIS project’s own Otto Dassau is running a “QGIS Grundlagen” workshop, as well as a workshop about the new GRASS plugin for QGIS.
- For more hands-on training with the makers themselves, don’t miss Marco Hugentobler’s and Pirmin Kalberer’s workshop on publishing with QGIS Server and QGIS Cloud.
- If you want to become a professional with projections, Claas Leiner’s workshop “Projektionsmanagement in QGIS” covers dealing with custom transformations. Claas is also running a Processing workshop on Wednesday.
Of course the program also features many non-QGIS workshops. If I’d have to pick one of them, it would most certainly be Marc Jansen’s and Andreas Hocevar’s OpenLayers 3 workshop because it’s always great to get the latest information first hand, directly from the developers.
Online registration closes on June 25th.
