Slides from Google Developer Day Tokyo: Mapping on your phone

Different from previous mobile presentations I've done, focuses more on optimizations like Fusion Tables layers, KML layers, styled maps and a few other things. I also presented the following demos:

Styled Maps

Geolocation Chrome didn't do so well at geolocation, but the Samsung Galaxy did.

Washington Post Marathon site

Fusion Tables in V3 sample

Post Google Developer Day Fusion Tables Tech Talk

Today, I presented a tech talk on Google Fusion Tables. It was really the first time I did one. The slides (below) are pretty minimal, because Fusion Tables is an amazing presentation platform. I mostly presented from a boundaries KML that I had uploaded to Fusion Tables. I got the data originally from Natural Earth, which is an AWESOME site, with tons of great data. I also used this simple page to show Maps API V3 integration as well as embedding. Fusion Tables is officially the new hotness.

My Slides from Last Night's Ignite Spatial NoCo

So, Google failed me. The first link for Ignite Spatial NoCo was a previous event, and I didn't check the date. I ended up going to Fort Collins, and then back to Windsor. Unfortunately, I missed half the other great speakers, but the event was fun. This is my 5 minute talk from last night.

My Slides from TimesOpen 2.0 Event on Mobile/Geo

There were about 100 people there, and it was great fun. The developers were all really engaged. When I asked how many had used the Google Maps API, almost everyone raised their hands. I almost went home at that point. And lots of interest in Fusion Tables, which I only did a demo of, didn't put in the slides, but check it out if you haven't already.
