FOSS4G B2B Mixer

While you’re at the show, check out the FOSS4G Business To Business Mixer (B2B) on August 14th from 5pm – 8pm. The B2B Mixer is a chance to network and connect with businesses that are leveraging FOSS4G technologies in their daily work.  This is a unique opportunity for businesses large and small to meet, exchange ideas, and discuss the business of free and open source geospatial technology.

This years mixer will include lightning presentations, including one from our COO, Sean Myers, titled Building a Competetive Edge Using OSS.  Sean will be previewing a quick look at our VETRO FiberMap platform.


NBT Solutions is also sponsoring this year’s FOSS4G co-located JS.Geo meetup event on Tuesday 8/15.  JS.Geo is a one day conference described as a “gathering for those with an enthusiasm for code and maps”.  NBT developers have attended several previous JS.Geo events and we look forward to this one!

See you in Boston!
