OpenStreetMap US: Connect 2020
This free, virtual event is a celebration of all things OpenStreetMap and our community. The event will include an informal Mappy Hour Thursday evening, a scheduled ½ day of talks on Friday, and a day of workshops, birds of a feather sessions and mapathons on Saturday. We hope to make this an annual gathering that enables people from across the country to learn about OpenStreetMap and network with fellow mappers through a combination of curated and community-led dialog.
Thursday October 29, 2020: Mappy Hour ~ 8:00pm ET to 9:00pm ET
Thanks for joining the Mappy Hour & helping us kickoff the event!
Friday, October 30, 2020: Curated Sessions ~ 2pm ET to 6pm ET / Networking & Costume Contest 6pm-7pm ET
Thanks for joining us for the Friday sessions, and for all of those who participated as speakers, facilitators and volunteers.
Saturday, October 31, 2020: Self-Organized Sessions ~ 10:30am to 4pm ET
Saturday was a combination of workshops, birds of a feather sessions, thematic mapping parties and more! The format of a self-organized session could be the right place for that. The only requirement that we have to your topic is that it has to be related to OpenStreetMap and that you abide by the OSM US Code of Conduct.
