There will be two PostGIS workshops at FOSS4G NA 2015 on March 9th. Signup if you haven't already.
PostGIS Up and Running 9AM - 12 PM. This is an introductory workshop where we'll cover the basics of configuring PostGIS and using the PostGIS geometry and geography types. We also plan to demonstrate some new features coming in PostGIS 2.2, particularly of the 3D kind. If time permitting, we'll do a quick coverage of pgRouting as well.
Someone asked on IRC if we will be handing out certificates of completion to folks who complete the workshop. Some people need this because they are allowed to attend workshops on company time, but not conferences. The thought hadn't crossed our mind, but we like the idea a lot. So yes you can have a certificate if you stay thru the whole session complete with Regina and Leo's seal of approval. We might even have some door prizes.
Advanced spatial analysis with PostGIS. Pierre Racine will be leading this workshop. Expect to be blown away by images of rasters dancing on legs of geometries. He'll also have some other cool advanced spatial analysis stuff beyond raster. Expect a lot of geometry processing tricks in this one.
Sadly I think our PostGIS In Action 2ed is going to be released a little after conference time and probably won't be ready until mid March, so probably just a wee bit too late for FOSS4G NA 2015, but just in time for PGCon.US New York 2015 March 25th-26th . Final book proofing is like getting our teeth pulled. I really hope it's worth the wait. We'll have coupons but no book. We will have some copies of our PostgreSQL: Up and Running 2nd Edition available though. If you've already bought one of our books and want it autographed, bring it along on your trip.
