For the first time this semester I’m running a second, more advanced session. This is a half-day workshop for learning open source spatial databases for organizing geographic data and doing spatial analyses. Eligibility requirements are the same, except that participants must also have prior GIS experience. Registration fee is $10 and includes a tutorial handout and hot beverages (coffee and tea). These sessions are also held on Fridays: Oct 11th, Nov 1st, and Dec 6th.

I’ve attached a flier that advertises both sessions.
Hope your semester is off to a good start. Best wishes – Frank
