The OSGeo Africa local chapter and the QGIS South Africa User Group
are holding a regional FOSS4G Africa conference from 28 June to 1 July
2017 at St Johns College, Houghton, Johannesburg. It is being held in
conjunction with a similar conference aimed at geography educators,
organised by SAGTA (South African Geography Teachers’ Association) and
GeoforAl. Each of the two ‘sub-conferences’ will overlap by a day (the
28th) to foster cross-pollination between the tech crowd and industry
and the educators, especially secondary school teachers.

There will be the usual mix of FOSS4G presentations and workshops as
well as map and app competitions.

On Saturday 1 July a code sprint / UN GIS Hackathon will be held
around the corner at the JSCE (Johannesburg Centre for Software
