Technical Workshops

Technical Workshops: here you will learn from experts and get hands-on training. You’ll get the chance to meet and connect with your community of users and developers – you can forge friendships and professional connections with like-minded people all in one go!

Concurrent Sessions

Concurrent Sessions: you’ll hear from the leaders of the community, the developers of your favourite projects, and experiences of users. The conference is split between geospatial data and software content and topics, you will find that they complement each other well.

Community Day

Community Day: panel sessions devoted to addressing the issues that affect us in our region and how to move forward, and your chance to give back and get your hands dirty taking part in a code sprint and a mapathon. With everyone in the same space – we’ll pool our resources and all figure out ways to contribute. Yes, we can all help!
