GeoTools Datastore Workshop at FOSS4G

There is still just time to register for the GeoTools Datastore workshop that is being presented at the FOSS4G conference in Seoul next month. The workshop is in the morning of 14th September and covers how to extend GeoTools with your own custom “DataStore” format. This course will take a detailed look at how vector data is handled. For an implementer GeoTools provides facilities for automatic handling of advanced functionality: thread safety, transactions with rollback and dynamic reprojection.

This is a Java Development workshop - so not only can you bring your own device - you can bring your own IDE. One instructor will be using Eclipse and the other Netbeans (command line and vi welcome).

You will leave this course with a custom “DataStore” implementation that can be dropped into an application such as GeoServer, and all the knowledge that you need to implement your own custom datastores in the future.
