      If I ride my bicycle to 1110 Vermont AVE NW, is there a place to lock it up (preferrably inside)?

    If planning on taking the "Becoming a QGIS Developer" workshop, please review the prerequisites:­

    The more attendees that have the VirtualBox setup, the better, since we will be installing more software into the OSGeo-Live VM.
