Next week the (German language) FOSSGIS-Konferenz takes place in Berlin. For the first time since 2007 I am not giving a talk there, but I’ll be around all three days to learn new things and (re-)connect with people from the OSM and Open Source GIS communities. Lars Lingner and I are also organizing a BoF session for freelancers. We both are have been seeing more and more interest in OSM and GIS development and services and are often contacted for projects larger than one person can handle or where different skillsets are needed. We want to better connect the freelancers in these fields to to able to help each other out. So if you are working freelance or have a small company in the OSM or Open Source GIS fields, please come join us on Wednesday for a chat.
