> Dear friends and FOSS4G enthusiasts,
> In preparing your trip to Bucharest, we invite you take a look at the
> FOSS4G2019 WoW! [1]
> What does WoW stand for? It stands for Words of Wisdom.
> We have asked our FOSS4G2019 ambassadors, our geospatial friends, core
> members of the open source for geospatial community to answer 3 simple
> questions, as they would to a young adult, over a drink.
> (1) The Road to Geospatial: How did it all start for you? What was your
> first geospatial undertaking?
> (2) Conference experiences: Why should one come to FOSS4G and not go to
> another geo-event? What was your significant conference experience that
> helped you carve your career?
> (3) What is your advice for students and young professionals at the
> beginning of their journey?
> Given their substantial and multi-fold contributions to our geospatial
> world of today, it is refreshing to find out that they didn’t know it
> all, they didn’t planned it from infancy and they weren’t all A
> students. They too struggled, they too had dilemmas and questions,
> failed at some, did better at others.
> Ever heard of the ‘GRASS GIS book’? Take a look at how it started! Ever
> heard of PostGIS? Take a look at the WoWs from it’s founder. Just click
> on the photos here [1] and find out the stories.
> We are very grateful to all that took the time to answer our request and
> we kindly invite you to read their Words of Wisdom.
> Warm regards,
> Codrina Ilie
