Schedule for the Geospatial devroom @FOSDEM 2016

I have the honour to present to present to you the schedule for the geospatial devroom at FOSDEM, which will happen on Sunday 31/01/2016.

We have a nice lineup with some well known GIS tools, moving over to new developments happening at OSGeo and Open Streetmap. 3D visualisation is the topic of different presentations around noon. And should you prefer backend work, the afternoon has a lineup of no less than 4 different geospatial databases (MySQL, Rasdaman, Mongodb and Pivotal).
