Week O’ Fun

The upcoming week is going to be a ton of fun:

  • Where 2.0: 29th-30th. I’ll be presenting OpenLayers at 4:30 on the 29th, and during the conference I’ll also be figuring out how to sanely hand out my limited supply of MetaCarta Labs On A Stick drives.

    Where last year was great: it was my first introduction to a lot of geo people, and I’m looking forward to it this year. It’s a great way to get out into the world a bit more and meet the people who actually might have a use for all the code I write.

  • Google Developer Day: May 31st. Although I’m not a huge Google person, this should be a good way to try to catch up to the mainstream in web mapping. Google has for a long time set the standard for web mapping, and I’m not convinced yet that this isn’t still the case (No matter how much I love OpenLayers).
  • WhereCamp: Jun 2-3. Anselm Hook and Ryan Sarver have put together WhereCamp, the geounconference, for the weekend after Where. Hosted at the Yahoo! campus, this is going to be a great event for all geohackers, and I’m hugely looking forward to it. 

I’ve still got to finish my OpenLayers presentation, and finalize the content for these Labs-on-a-Stick drives, but I’m hoping that once I do I can sit back, and hopefully get in some good time doing OpenLayers hacking: Schuyler, myself, Erik and Tim are all going to be in town, so we should be able to move forward on some stuff while we’re all in the same physical location.

Looking forward to meeting anyone and everyone at the conference… feel free to drop a comment if you feel like we should meet up and haven’t already made plans.
