Title: Riding the Geolocation Wave
Presentor: Tatham Oddie
Date: Tue, 15 Mar 2011 20:26:00 GMT
Description: It&rsquo;s pretty obvious by now that geolocation is a heavy player in the next wave of applications and APIs. Now is the time to learn how to take advantage of this information and add context to your own applications. In this session we&rsquo;ll look at geolocation at every layer of the stack &ndash; from open protocols to operating system APIs, from the browser to Windows Phone 7. Building a compelling geo-enabled experience takes more than simple coordinates. In this session we will introduce the basics of determining a user&rsquo;s location and then delve into how to make geo data a useful addition to your application instead of a bolt-on &ldquo;me too&rdquo;.
