Weekend in Essen

08
Feb

Over the last weekend I attended the Garmin Project weekend in Essen, Germany. It was great to meet and exchange views with all the other participants.

I am looking forward to seeing the result of the main discussion of the weekend which was to design a web site to help people without any pre-existing knowledge of OSM find maps for their Garmin devices in a simple and straightforward way. In addition there were many other useful discussions, and the chance to meet others face-to-face is very valuable in a project such as ours where the only ongoing contact is via email.

So I would like to thank those that made it all possible, to FOSSGIS who sponsored the event; the Linux Hotel who support open source by providing facilities to events such as this one and to Marc Gehling who in addition to organising the whole event, even cooked lunch for us!
