Notes

I have extensive experience with QGIS and have authored 3 QGIS books: 2 editions of Mastering QGIS, 2 editions of Discover QGIS and QGIS for Hydrologic Applications (in development). I will have just returned from the QGIS Hackfest/User Conference in A Coruña Spain and will have the latest news on the project. I use QGIS daily in my consulting business and am involved in the QGIS community as the lead for the QGIS Certification program. This talk will be great for anyone needing to catch up on this rapidly evolving and widely used project. .
