I recently presented at the San Francisco Geo Meetup. It was during the Google I/O conference and it was great to be able to hook up with a bunch of geo people to talk mapping and geospatial!
I presented on the idea of building a mapping application and how the map should be intertwined into the application’s structure, rather than having a separate “launch map” link.
“Launch Map” is my nemesis
The slides are available here:
Once again the Geomeetup was excellent, and I would highly recommend it to anyone in the area or traveling through, the meetup page is here: http://www.meetup.com/geomeetup/
