Next Saturday (10/13) there will be a two hour, hands on workshop on OpenStreetMap, the free and open community map of the world. It will describe the project, and then walk through how to use OpenStreetMap map data, edit it, and contribute to the data set. More details, an agenda, and sign up are here: http://hello-osm.eventbrite.com.
This workshop - while free and open to the public - is part of OpenStreetMap's State of the Map conference. Everyone attending the workshop is also invited to sit in on the conference keynotes, and to stick around after for lunch and to mingle. It will be a great opportunity to learn hands on skills on how to use OpenStreetMap and also meet folks in the larger community in town for the conference.
Details + RSVP here: http://hello-osm.eventbrite.com. Spots are limited, so sign up soon.
