London/Winter 2013-2014 events
Welcome to the list of OpenStreetMap related events in London for winter 2013-2014.
The most common type of pure OpenStreetMap event over the winter, will be a simple pub meet-up. These events are free and open to all. It's just a pub. We're not doing any mapping, or any other strange OpenStreetMap rituals (that's only in the summer) We normally have a mixture of old OpenStreetMap hands and new people coming along to find out more. We'll just be sitting around having a friendly chat about little things like freeing the world's geo-data. We hope you'll join us! Everyone and anyone is welcome.
Tue 18th March #geomob
#geomob is a presentations evening on geospatial (maps) topics in general, but often featuring some OpenStreetMap, and always with some OpenStreetMap in attendance.
Thu 20th Mar pub meet-up
Pencilling in Thu 20th March for a future pub meet-up. Venue suggestions, and other organisation is welcome. Harry will not make it.
This will be the last of the winter pub meet-ups before the clocks change March 30th
Wed 2nd Apr pub meet-up or mapping party?
Pencilling in Wednesday 2nd April for a future pub meet-up / mapping event. Venue suggestions, and other organisation is welcome. Harry will not make it.
This will be the first of the London Summer OpenStreetMap events when we've suddenly got some evening daylight. As such, it could be a beginner-friendly mapping event of some sort. To be decided.
Because Harry is a away, nobody will get around to organising anything though. Yes... that is a challenge :-)
Sat 9th August - 10th Birthday Party
OpenStreetMap 10th Anniversary Birthday party. Worldwide party! We'll do something in London. Nothing has been decided yet, except the date. Keep it free!
We'll use this wiki page to announce events, as well as @OSMLondon . Announcements may come at short notice!
There’s lots of other events in London e.g. tech meet-up groups, for which OpenStreetMap is relevant. Please use the wiki to pro-actively coordinate the setting up of an “OpenStreetMap presence” at these events… or just go along (Other OSMers may or may not be there)
We’re putting together a list of London event venues for future events of a non-pub format. Please chip in if you have ideas or if your organisation would like to host or sponsor an event!
