Yesterday I presented to the Greater London Linux User Group (GLLUG) how to edit the OpenStreetMap data, with a short field trip. Apart from running a little late, I think it went fairly well with some good participation from the audience. Things I’d do better the next time include:
- preparing the slides more, particularly the server side ones for this audience;
- giving the 2 minute introduction to OpenStreetMap, as there were people who didn’t know the basics about OSM in the crowd;
- also doing it as a lab session, rather than rushed example demonstration of the editing before being thrown out of the lecture theatre.
I have made my slides from the talk available below.
