Rendez-vous OSGeo Québec 2010 in Saguenay

(Version Française)

The Quebec Local Chapter of OSGeo is proud to announce the first edition of Rendez-vous OSGeo Québec which is going to take place in Saguenay (a.k.a. Chicoutimi, my home town) on June 15-16, 2010.

The date of the event also coincides with the second anniversary of the local chapter which was created following a meeting at the same location in June of 2008. A very dynamic community has built around the OSGeo Quebec Local Chapter since its creation 2 years ago and I feel that it's just the beginning.

Members of the local OSGeo community will be invited to present their projects, and we will also be honored to have some of the key players of the North American OSGeo community with us, including (in alphabetical order):
  • Steve Lime
  • Jeff McKenna
  • Tyler Mitchell
  • Paul Ramsey
  • Frank Warmerdam
This will of course be an exceptional chance for the local community members to meet and interact with them, but I must admit that their presence will also be a big highlight for me personally since I have worked with all of them over the years, and I will finally have a chance to show them our very beautiful region and to let them witness by themselves the exceptional dynamism of the local OSGeo community.

All the ingredients are there for a great partyevent and I hope some of you from the international OSGeo community can join us in Saguenay in June. If you are interested in finding out more, please visit the Rendez-vous OSGeo Québec 2010 website (in French only at the moment unfortunately) and come back often to catch updates to the conference and social program. Also feel free to contact me directly for any question about the event.
