2017 Spring Fling

The CUGOS Spring Fling is a full-day event centered around open source geography. This is a great way to learn about new mapping software, hear how companies are integrating location into their products, and get some hands-on experience with important tools like Leaflet, AWS, Turf.js, and QGIS. We welcome students, professionals, map lovers, coders, and anyone with a passion for learning about spatial information. The Spring Fling is designed for anyone with an interest in maps and open source software.

When? Saturday, May 20th, 8:30 AM - 6:00 PM
Where? General Assembly, Downtown Seattle (Seattle Tower)
How? Register here!
