Subject: [OSGeo-Discuss] MapWindow/DotSpatial 2011 - User/Developer Conference

Dear OSGeo Discuss List:
The MapWindow project team is pleased to announce that we are hosting an "OSGeo DotNet" focused conference and workshops June 13-15, 2011 in San Diego, California. There is more information and a call for abstracts on the conference web site:
The call for abstracts closes on March 31, so please let me know soon if you are interested in participating. 

We know that a large portion of our OSGeo community is more comfortable in Linux than in Windows, but there continues to be a growing interest in and demand for programmer tools based on the DotNet environment - and those of us on the OSGeo DotNet side of things don't think that the proprietary vendors should control that market. :)

So this event will be centered on the MapWindow project, the new DotSpatial programmer library (think open source ArcObjects) and several other very cool software tools (SharpMap, Whitebox, and others). 

If you are at all interested in learning more about these projects please consider coming to this event.
