February 2021 - Talk and Stammtisch

In February we tried a new format in the new Maptime Salzburg WorkAdventure environment. We started with a talk by Franz Gusenbauer in the virtual meeting room. Franz told us how he established his own geoinformatics company and explained the technical setup in his software products - powered by open source software. Thanks for this insightful talk!

Afterwards we explored the Workadventure space and had an enjoyable virtual Stammtisch. Looking forward to next time!

December 2020 - 🏅 Geo Quiz and Stammtisch 🏆

The online geo quiz night in November was fun and many said: Let’s do that again in December! 11 participants joined for the December quiz with a decent selection of mind-boggling geography / GIS and related questions! ✨ Congratulations to the three winners, who will receive a sticker set and a postcard as a prize!

After the quiz we moved from the traditional video conference to a more playful setting to have an online Stammtisch in the beer garden. This was fun!
