CartoDB at FOSS4G NA 2016

CartoDB is very excited about the upcoming FOSS4G-NA conference!

We've given sessions at the conference for the last 2 years and hope 2016 won't be an exception. Held in Raleigh  North Carolina from May 2-5  this is the premiere conference for free  open source software designed for geospatial in North America. Thousands of participants and hundreds of companies converge to share  demo  and talk about the things we love most.

In order to see us there we need your help!

FOSS4G NA has opened up [community voting] to allow participants to have a say in what sessions they would like to see at this year’s conference. You can vote for as many panels as you'd like! Voting remains open until February 8  2016  11:59 EST.
