FOSS4G 2015 Workshops
Workshops are half(4 hours) or full-day(8 hours) hands-on experiences with participants following along with an instructor. Workshops will be run by experienced members of the open source community, and sometimes by the actual developers. As such, they are a fantastic opportunity to learn new skills or take your first steps into the world of Open Source GIS. For workshops, we are offering two formats like below for instructors to use at their discretion.
- We will provide workshop rooms with computers for participants to use. Instructors will need to discuss pre-installation requirements with the Conference Organizing Committee if required. The number of these rooms is limited.
- Alternatively, instructors may choose a “Bring Your Own Device” format. This allows for more participants, but past experience has shown that this may require significant set-up time. You may increase efficiency by setting up server side tutorials for the workshop.
Instructors are strongly encouraged to use bootable media such as the OSGeo Live USB stick to reduce set-up time and to increase efficiency. Please note that OSGeo Live USB sticks will be provided to all participants. Workshops require considerable effort to produce a high-quality workshop. You are strongly encouraged to develop material for attendees to take home with them, such as handouts, a workbook, CD-ROMs, etc.
