Here is a quick update on the QGIS Meeting in Chattanooga TN on October 25th 2019.

We have half the slots filled with speakers. If you want to speak or have expressed an interest please forward your abstract to me so I can add it to the list.


Two speakers of Note:

Nyall's contributions to QGIS cover a wide range of areas - from improvements to the map rendering and symbology engines, enhancements to labeling and print layout functionality, right through to optimizations of the underlying spatial processing algorithms utilized by QGIS
