Check Out other Geo Events Around FOSS4G in Portland


After you register [1] for FOSS4G and as you make your plans to join us in Portland, Oregon this September 8th - 13th, consider other exciting things you can do while in PDX...

PostgreSQL Day

Join the Portland Postgres Users Group [2] (PDXPUG) for PostgreSQL Day on September 6th, the Saturday before FOSS4G. Attendance is free, but an RSVP is required (RSVP here) [3]. PostgreSQL Day is hosted by Portland State University and PDXPUG.

Code Sprint

The annual FOSS4G Code Sprint is on Saturday Sept 13th at the Eliot Center.  More details at the wiki [4].  The industrious GeoServer team is continuing the sprint onSunday [5].

WhereCampPDX

If you are lingering in PDX after FOSS4G, and need a place to put your creative thoughts into action, drop by WhereCampPDX and share them with other friendly geo-nerds.  WhereCamps are unconferences that aim to connect geo-enthusiasts, developers, social place hackers, artists, activists, grad students, geographers, earth scientists and anybody else who wants to "know their place".  More details at website[6]. (check back for updates).

Js.Geo

Js.Geo is officially happening during FOSS4G (for reals).  This one day conference brings together experts or people deeply interested in spending a full day digging into advanced topics in the Geospatial Javascript realm. We'll convene for a series of curated talks from some leaders in  JS + GEO  and have plenty of time to explore ideas and concepts. The talks will also leave time for demos and questions and answer sessions

More details and speakers will be revealed as the event gets closer, but space is limited and we are down to 80 tickets.  So book your spot [7].

LocationTech

After an evening of hor d’oeuvres in the exhibit hall, head over to the FOSS4G stop of the LocationTech Tour [8]. 

Additional guest tickets for Gala

The Gala Night at the World Forestry Center is included with regular conference registration.  If you would like to bring a guest, then you will need an additional ticket.  Note that single day and volunteer registrations do not include the Gala Night; you will need a ticket if you want to attend.  Gala Night tickets are available in the registration[1].
