Where2.0 am I ?
'Now in its sixth year, the Where 2.0 Conference is where the grassroots and leading edge developers building location-aware technology intersect with the businesses and entrepreneurs seeking out location apps, platforms, and hardware to gain a competitive edge. In the O'Reilly conference tradition, Where 2.0 presents leading trends rather than chasing them.
At Where 2.0, you'll find source mapping tools, reality mining, open standards for data and location web services, and sensors for obtaining location data.
We'll learn how the established geo industry is reacting to the first businesses making money from their grassroots geospatial projects. There's no better place to meet the people behind the mashups, the people behind the platforms, and the people looking ahead to the future of geospatial. Join us at Where 2.0 to debate and discuss what's viable now, and what's lurking just below the radar.
Where 2.0 2010 encompasses a full day of workshops followed by two days of plenary sessions featuring a unique combination of high profile keynotes with big players, lightning talks, panel discussions, demos, product launches, Q&A time, and much more. The most innovative and interesting people in this space are featured on stage, and they stay around to debate and discuss with other conference-goers off stage.' -Where2.0 Conference Website.I had a blast at this conference for geo-geeks and learned a lot about various mapping technologies, location based services, trends, and digital city technologies.
