Fwd: Joining the Communities, FOSS4G and Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team
As many of you have noticed, it's been an exciting time for the FOSS4G preparations in Dar es Salaam! We've had over 50 submissions to our academic track and some big sponsors have already been announced... some further news is that we're partnering with Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team for FOSS4G in September!
This will bring two great communities together! Two communities which are using each other's data, tools, and knowledge on a daily basis to improve our world. By partnering with HOT we will add another 200+ attendees to the mix, with many not having been to a FOSS4G before. This help us achieve our vision of being the most inclusive FOSS4G yet, providing Geo 4 All, and widening the scope of participation of a FOSS4G.
Please don't hesitate to get in touch with myself, the Dar Local Organising Committee (DLOC) with any questions, and our website with tickets, vision, and further information is here: http://2018.foss4g.org. To keep in touch with us, please subscribe to our mutual subscription lists too: FOSS4G: http://eepurl.com/cubwrT and for HOT: http://eepurl.com/bC7JBj. We're looking forward to saying "Karibu Sana" to you, in August, in Dar es Salaam!
