PostGIS in Action book sale at Registration Booth
We'll be selling some copies of our book at the registration counter. We'll be selling it for a little less than Amazon or Manning. You may even be able to see us in person, and if you want us to dirty your book with our signature, we'd be happy too. Well Regina will be happy too, Leo still has to overcome his hangup of defacing books with ink.
