FOSS4G – Business to Business Mixer

The mixer provides a valuable opportunity for business networking. It is specially  aimed at companies and organizations which do business in the scope of Free and Open Source Software for Geospatial. The event will include lightning presentations, as well as time for mingling and networking. The best presentation will receive a special prize from the organization.

Your hosts for the evening will be Joana Simoes and Maria Arias de Reyna.

Joana is a software engineer and data scientist, with a strong background on geospatial technologies and algorithms. Since receiving her PhD in GIS from the University College of London, she has worked in a range of environments, including academia, small and medium tech companies and the United Nations. Throughout her career, she has mostly focused on customizing and applying Free and Open Source technologies to solve problems in a wide range of domains such as Smart Cities, Fisheries Stock Management or Disease Outbreak Modelling. Although Joana has accumulated a large experience with object oriented languages and relational databases, she is always interested in picking up new technologies. In recent years she has been interested in the challenges of Big Data, as well as virtualization and automated deployment in cloud environments. Joana joined GeoCat in early 2016, and led the development of GeoCat Live, a subscription based service for running SDIs on the cloud.

María has been a free GIS software developer since 2007. She worked on different topics like routing, real-time map and SDI. In 2012 she started working for GeoCat, focusing mainly on the development of GeoNetwork opensource and other services related to spatial data infrastructures. María is a member of the Local Spanish-Speaking Chapter of OSGeo and is one of the founders of Geoinquietos Sevilla. She is also the President of OSGeo.
