  • Grant Slater (OpenStreetMap Foundation)

This session will provide an introduction to the OpenStreetMap operations team, what OpenStreetMap.org services we are responsible for building and maintaining.

Grant recently became the OpenStreetMap Foundation’s first full-time employee. Grant will present how he is helping improve reliability and security of the project’s technology and infrastructure.


Grant will detail how the Operations team are modernising the project’s infrastructure by reducing complexity, paying-down technical debt, while reducing the need to maintain undifferentiated heavy lifting.

If you’re interested in what powers OpenStreetMap and make it tick, come to this session.
