Upcoming Talks: Web2.0

Web 2.0 Expo LogoAnother talk Mikel and I will be giving is Adding Location to Web 2.0 Apps at the O'Reilly Web 2.0 expo, April 15-18, 2007.

It will give an overview of the new and developing tools that web developers can use to incorporate maps, GeoRSS/KML/Microformats, geocoding, and location in general to their applications or services.

In particular, it is focusing on how to make your application's mapping user-centric, by providing a good user interface, and allowing them to use and share their data and get the data they want onto their devices to use while they're out and about experiencing the world.
