Introduction

OSGeo Advocates are authoritative OSGeo personalities who have volunteered to talk on behalf of the OSGeo foundation. Advocates should be able to speak well, even better if they are entertaining.

There are hundreds, if not thousands of conferences around the world which have an interest in seeing presentations from authoritative speakers, with deep insights into topics related to Open Source Geospatial Software. Luckily, OSGeo is fortunate to draw extensive membership from around the world, and has access to such authoritative figures within most countries.

Process for becoming an OSGeo Advocate

Anyone fitting one of the OSGeo Advocate categories, may put themselves forward as an OSGeo Advocate. To do so, you will need to:

  • Create an OSGeo wiki account, to edit this wiki (See "login" link in top right of this page).
  • Add a portrait photo of yourself using the Upload file link in left margin in each page.
  • Create a new wiki page http://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/User:YourOSGeoWikiUserName, and populate as per User:Template, (copy and paste from the source so that you see comments in the template).
  • You can then add your profile on this wiki page, under your Region:Country, names ordered alphabetically by First name, using the following:
 {{User:<YourOSGeoWikiUserName>}}

Annual Refresh of Advocate list

  • The list of OSGeo Advocates will be refreshed annually, after the annual voting of OSGeo Charter Members. This will be achieved by removing lapsed Advocates, then moving all Current Advocates into the Past Advocate section. All Advocates will be invited to update their profile, and move their profile back into the current Advocates section.

Developing open source software is fun, to make sure it's being used is even more fun!

My last pieces of code (some small Mapserver contributions) date from somewhere around 2002. Since 2012 involved in the Dutch local chapter, since summer 2013 as chairman of the local board. Co-organizer of the 2013 "OSGeoNL dag" (the yearly dutch local meeting), with 125 participants. Members of the FOSS4G-2016 LOC.

Always looking for opportunities to coöperate with other geo-spatial organisations, including governmental and commercial organisations.

Small detail: Ten years ago I've been in the board of the Dutch ArcGIS user group for 5 years.

Personal Description : I am an open source advocate, consultant, teacher, and developer. My background is in geography with a specialization in geographic information science. I live in Switzerland in a small Romansh speaking mountain village where I love scrambling around the mountains to enjoy the feeling of freedom it gives me. I’m a very communicative person, I fluently speak Italian, German, French English, and Spanish and love traveling.

I work as director of OPENGIS.ch which I founded in 2011. Since 2015 I share the company ownership with Matthias Kuhn. At OPENGIS.ch LLC we (4 superstar devs and myself) develop, train and consult our client on any aspect related to QGIS.

My first QGIS (to be correct for that time QuantumGIS) ever was “Simon (0.6)” during my BSc when the University of Zurich was teaching us proprietary products and I started looking around for Open Source alternatives. In 2008, when starting my MSc, I made the definitive switch to Ubuntu and I started working more and more with QGIS Metis (0.11) and ended developing some plugins and part of Globe as my Masters' thesis. Since three years the University of Zurich invites me to hold two seminars on Entrepreneurship and Open Source. In November 2011 I attended my first Hackfest in Zürich where I started porting all QGIS dependencies and developing QGIS for Android under a Google Summer of Code. A couple of years and a lot of work later QField was born. Since then I’ve always tried to attend at least to one Hackfest per year to be able to feel first hand the strong bonds within our very welcoming community.

In 2013 I was lucky enough to have a release named after a suggestion I saved you all from having QGIS 2.0 - Hönggerberg and giving you instead QGIS 2.0 - Dufour

Besides my long story with QGIS as a user and passionate advocate, I have a long story as QGIS service provider where we are fully committed to its stability, feature richness and sustainable development. Furthermore, as a consultant, I am lucky enough to be sent now and then to spread the QGIS goodness in less fortunate countries.
