Fellow geomobsters,

we hope the summer was enjoyable and everyone is ready to get back into the geoswing of things.

Next Thursday evening we’ll be meeting at 18:30 at Google’s Silicon Roundabout Campus for another #geomob. Many thanks to our friends at Google for making the venue available to us.

Our lineup for the evening is

  • Simon Tokumine - Introduction to CartoDB
  • Laurence Penney - One dimensional maps 
  • George MacKerron - mappiness 
  • Bart Denny - recce

As per time honoured #geomob tradition, we will then retire to the pub  - The Fox - to reflect on the talks and general geo-merriment, with the first round or two paid for our ever loyal sponsors Lokku.

Based on the Lanyrd page, it seems we will have a good turnout.

If you can’t make it next week don’t be too disappointed, more geo fun is on the way. On October 24th Google Campus will play host to the all day W3G (un)conference. The theme this year is “Is open the new black”, keynote speaker is Tom Steinberg who has been leading great work on openness in government (geo related and otherwise) over at mySociety (regular geomobbsters will recall the talk at our last event about mySociety project FixMyStreet). W3G promises to be an interesting day where participants can go into more depth than our #geomob format allows.

In addition, we’ll squeeze in the final #geomob of the year on Thursday the 22nd of November. A few speakers are already on the agenda, but we’re on the hunt for more. All recommendations welcome.

We look forward to seeing everyone next Thursday at 18:30.
