QGIS Class – February 7th 2014 – Filling Fast

Feb 3, 2014 | GIS, Open Source GIS, QGIS

If I can be candid at this point – training is a biatch. I’ve went on tirades about advertising. It’s hard. I employ currently a three or four pronged approach: website, twitter, facebook, linkedin, and Google+, and newsletter. I think that was five. The assumption is that info will filter out to those who need it. Out of all of that – Word of mouth trumps everything else.

So – I’ve held classes in the past and some have filled and some have done nothing. Some – like this one – are actually making an impact and people are signing up. What was a silly idea “Lets Teach QGIS” is actually gaining traction. It’s gained enough to start to fill this class and it’s led to a Part II we are currently writing and I think through an email this morning I just pitched Part III: PostGIS and Geoserver

Anyway – If you want to come to it – the time is now. Email me – fill out the very small form on the training page – and show up. We’ll go have a beer afterwards and discuss the latest and greatest from Terrapin Brewing Company or the state of GIS and why everyone is insane but us.

Business. It's complicated. One of the more complicated things I've done has been advertising. How do you advertise a small GIS Consulting Shop? Ads on "The Internet"? Magazine? Direct Mailings? Word of mouth? The answer is "word of mouth". That and Conferences. That...
