The Boston OSGeo Code Sprint ended today. Overall I think it was a great success just in terms of what was accomplished
and the fact that it was the very first conference we had ever set up. We were all nerves so couldn't enjoy it as much as we wanted to. It was also the first conference we were able to sorta attend all days for.
Paul already gave a great cap on what was going on in the PostGIS and MapServer camps. I still felt like there was way too much coding going on
and would be nice to have a bit more talking and a bit less typing.
I want to thank EnterpriseDb for being a Gold Sponsor and it would have been nice if they gave a talk. Maybe I can drag them in some other day. Rich Grady, of AppGeo gave a wonderful and humorous talk about the metamophisis AppGeo is going thru coming from a predominantly ESRI shop, now focused on the prize of finding the best solutions to solve spatial IT problems; which surprisingly does not always involve ESRI and is more and more requiring Open Source GIS technologies. They did show off their ESRI medals of honor and how well they kept papers from flying around.
For those who contributed to our pgRouting campaign, a BIG THANKS. We'll be circling back later this week or early next to try to finish collecting and charging credit cards.
If you already wrote us asking, but how do I pay? and we haven't responded with details, don't worry about it. We'll get to you next week. More concerned about those who haven't contacted us.
