Register here: GeoRabble Tas #2
It’s that time of year again when thoughts of the GeoRabble in Brisbane turn to Xmas!
Our latest event with ticket “sales” breaking through 120, and fast approaching the “capacity” of 150, is on tomorrow night, Tue 3 December 2013, at the Pig n Whistle.
As an insider’s tip I am sure at least some of us will stay on after the official event close at 8pm and grab a bite to eat at the restaurant towards the front of the hotel.
Join us for the annual GeoRabble Sydney Christmas drinks & pizzas, from 6PM upstairs at the Occidental Hotel.
As always – this is a free event, and pizza will be supplied (sponsored by Omnilink)
Hosted by first-hour rabbler Francisco Urbina, you will have the chance to win free drinks by demonstrating your knowledge of some of the more (and less) obscure geo-trivia we are going to come up with over the next two weeks!
Looking forward to see you all at the Occidental, on Thursday 5 December.
The first GeoRabble Tas was held on Thursday the 14th of November and attracted almost 40 registrations. The event was held at Tattersalls in Hobart in their upstairs room, which was probably a little small for the number of people. But the food was great, and free, thanks to the event’s sponsor, Geometry. Thanks Geometry! The speakers were excellent, and the crowd’s vibe very positive.
The first GeoRabble Tas is on and it’s going to be a web-mapping special. We’ve got speakers covering many aspects of the web, from Open Layers to Open Source, from big, complex statewide basemaps to foundational open data initiatives in local government.
We’ve got four speakers, a great sponsor, a tidy venue, good food… All we need is you to come along and make the event great! Book in here: georabbletas1.eventbrite.com.au. If you have an idea of a good speaker or topic, or if you’re interested in helping run an event in the future, drop by the Google+ Community.
