Jump to: navigation, search

The Brighton Workship was a past event which took place in Brighton on September 9th 2006.

This was the day before dConstruct, a one day Web 2.0-ish development conference. The idea was to introduce some of the bleeding edge web developers to OpenStreetMap, as well as get locals and old-OSM-hands involved in collaboratively mapping Brighton.

Old details

  • When - 10am Sat 9th September, we'll meet, introduce OpenStreetMap and get organized. Until 4pm.
  • Meet Venue - BrightonWeb Offices at James House, 2 Brunswick Terrace, Hove (50.82299 -0.15684)
  • Accommodation - There are many places to stay in Brighton, the entire breadth of style and price.
  • GPS units - We will have about a dozen GPS Units for Loan. If you have any additional loaners, that's welcome. We'll be requesting ID/Mobile Phones as deposit.
