I'm wondering if there would be interest on this list in teaching at an
Open Mapping workshop (OSM + OpenLayers + PostGIS) during the dev8d
conference, which is at ULU in London February 14th - 16th.
Thw workshop would be a couple of hours long in total with two or three
people presenting, and plenty of hands on time for the attendees.
There'd be the option of a "surgery" or space in a projects area, later
in the day. I think it's still quite open as to *when*, over three days.
I work with a PostGIS expert who I'm hoping to tempt down from
Edinburgh, she ran part of a similar workshop attached to State of the
Map Scotland in Glasgow, we'd need others at dev8d to cover editing and
re-using OSM would be great. There'd be a background "getting off Google
Maps" theme, which is more topical now than ever!
The event is aimed at developers working in higher education, with
project and network activity accordingly, but all are welcome, I was
surprised to see a few old friends there last year, maybe more this year?
Please get back to me off-list if you're interested in taking part in a
