FOSS4G Korea 2014 and FOSS4G 2015 (Korea!)

Posted by smathermather on August 30, 2014

I have much to say about my experiences this past week at FOSS4G Korea, but I’ll keep this very short for now. If you live in North America or Europe and are thinking about not going to FOSS4G 2015 because it’s too far, rethink it. Waiting for you on the other side of the world is Korea, a complex mix of old and new, mountain and ocean, kind and fierce. I can’t say enough good about the hospitality I have received, the food I have eaten, the quality of the conference attendees, the energy and the love for OSGeo.

For the moment, I will leave you with this image of a temple entrance near Bukhansan National Park which effectively says, “Endeavor to explore the world”. It’s a geographer’s temple, I think.
