Top 10 Reasons to Attend FOSS4G 2011 in Denver

The Event Presents Great Value and Rare Opportunity

DENVER, July 27, 2011 -- The Free and Open Source Software for Geospatial (FOSS4G) conference is the premier international conference focused on open source geospatial software. The event presents a number of unique learning opportunities at a great value compared to similar professional conferences.

Following are the Top 10 reasons to consider attendance at this event.

  1. Open source software for geospatial is gaining strong momentum with high performance and high-profile use cases, and you need to know what's available. If you are currently using closed source commercial software, you owe it to yourself and your organization to understand the capabilities, cost justifications, and the community of open source geospatial software developers.

  2. Location: Denver is the recognized geospatial hub of the United States with many commercial geospatial data providers, commercial software companies, engaged software developers, and a wide array of federal agencies that create and manage geospatial data and applications. Coming to this hub will expose attendees to an engaged and vibrant community to interact and learn from.

  3. Location: This is the first of these global gatherings to take place in North America in the past four years, and will likely not be repeated soon. The event makes its way around the world on a yearly basis, and if you live and work in North America, this is a chance to catch it while it’s close.

  4. Location: The weather and touring possibilities make it an excellent draw for global participants. The timing coincides with peak golden aspen viewing in the mountains, with typically clear and crisp autumn weather. Denver is also a key jumping off point for tours of the scenic American west, including many of the large national parks that are within a day’s drive.

  5. Gain a global perspective with presentations from speakers from around the world.

  6. An introductory immersion welcomes newcomers with concentrated content to get you up to speed. With an all-day planned as an introduction, it’s a prime opportunity to understand what’s available and at a very low cost of only $149 for the day.

  7. This is the top educational event for detailed workshops and sessions on tools, custom development, and applications. Again, there is great value here with Monday workshops at only $149 each, and one-day registration at only $349.

  8. Evening social gatherings, big party night, and informal meetings make this a prime event to meet peers and extend your social network.

  9. The event draws top developers in the community who are developing the next-generation tools. If you are looking for top talent to act as consultants in creating custom tools or to integrate FOSS solutions with your commercial implementations, this is the marketplace to meet them.

  10. It’s rare to encounter such a dedicated group of individuals on a mission to change the world with software. Be part of the movement to extend the reach and possibilities of Open Source Software for Geospatial and put a little passion in your work.
