Geogeeks is a Perth-based meetup group for people interested in hacking on geospatial projects using (mostly) open source tools and data. We'll be working on anything that involves a sense of place - after all, everything happens somewhere.
All geogeeks are welcome to join our hack nights, from seasoned pros to complete newbs. The objective is to learn, to teach, and to build in a fun & collaborative working environment. Bring along a laptop and ideas for projects to work on.
Want to learn new things, have fun, and make something? To hear about hack nights & events:
We meet every second Thursday evening at Spacecubed for a few hours of geogeekery.
It's still early days, but so far, we've already had a hands-on PostGIS workshop, started a substantial project, and helped each other solve some problems.
Over the next few hack nights, we're going to work on our historic maps project, and potentially unearth another project or two to dive into.
Ask questions, join a workshop, learn by doing.
