How to Win Friends and Use QGIS

March 16th, 2015



I had the opportunity to speak at a great conference last week: the Free and Open Source Software for Geo North America (FOSS4G NA 2015) conference. With over 400 enthusiastic people getting together to talk about geo software in the opensource realm, it was a big success.

My talk was on using QGIS and had a somewhat unusual format in that I switched back and forth between quotes from Dale Carnegie (of How to Win Friends and Influence People fame) and a live demo of the making of a complete map using QGIS 2.8.

Check it out here and when you’re done head over to the FOSS4G NA 2015 YouTube channel to see all the other fantastic talks. The content taught in this talk will be expanded and made into a tutorial for the upcoming Maptime Boulder (sign up here) and also posted online sometime in April for everyone.
