FOSS4G presentations, videos, posters available

Sydney, Australia. 7 December 2009 – Presentations, videos and posters from the international conference for Free and Open Source Software for GeoSpatial are now online.

So if you missed the conference, or couldn’t attend all the sessions, you now have a second chance to participate. In particular, I strongly recommend viewing Paul Ramsey’s thought provoking and entertaining keynote speech, “Beyond Nerds Bearing Gifts: The Future of the Open Source Economy” (see link below0.

Almost all presentations, tutorials and workshop material has been collected, and we have videos of 2/3 of all the presentations.
