Maptime was a good time!
“Maptime is a collection of beginner-focused community groups for learning geospatial technology, techniques, and concepts, particularly using open source tools and hands-on practice and exercises. But Maptime is also an important idea: it shouldn’t be so hard to learn, and we have the power to make it easier – and teach ourselves in the process” : from http://lyzidiamond.com/posts/why-maptime/
