FOSS4G 2009 in Sydney, NSW

At the end of October I decided to attend the Free and Open Source For Geospatial FOSS4G conference in Sydney.  I really wanted to learn more about OpenLayers (as I love how FUSION and MapGuide have now implemented OpenLayers). 

The conference was great.  Not only did I learn about OpenLayers (I had a great lab where I got to play!), but I learned about geoserver and mapserver technologies (very cool).

I was hoping for some more MapGuide, luckily Geoff Zeiss discused some really neat RestFull web services and Jackie Ng showed off his very powerful FDOToolbox.

I think I will have to submit some labs for Essential MapGuide next year in Barcelona. 🙂

I also brought my Bike Friday to Sydney and cycled for a week up the coast from Sydney and caught the train back at the end of the week.
