I received this announcement via a listerv, and thought that it might be of interest to our community:
If you are around this summer, consider attending WhereCampSoCal, July 12-13 (right after the Esri UC), at SDSU.
From http://www.wherecampsocal.org :
WhereCampSoCal is a free, volunteer-run unconference on geography and geospatial technology. This year’s gathering will be held July 12th-13th, 2013, at San Diego State University's Department of Geography. It'll be a day and a half of discussion, networking, demos, and all manner of geospatial goodness.
This is a fun, participant-driven event that attracts a dynamic group of folks from academia, industry, government agencies and NGOs. All are welcome and you can come one day or both.
