FOSS4G announces Mike Bostock as keynote speaker
We are pleased to announce that Mike Bostock will be featured as the opening keynote speaker for FOSS4G.
Bostock designs interactive graphics for The New York Times. He is also the author of D3.js , a popular open-source library for visualizing data using web standards, and TopoJSON, an extension to GeoJSON that encodes topology.
D3.js is one of the most exciting visualization technologies to appear recently, and we're very excited to have Mike at FOSS4G. You can see some of his work at his website and be sure to check out his numerous elegant D3.js examples
Workshop proposal reminder
Workshop Proposals are due March 15th, just a couple of days away. We've had lots of great submissions, but would love to have yours, too. Workshops are always very popular, and are a great way to introduce people to your work. No project or idea is too small to be worth submitting.
