Alex and I are flying up to the Windy City for the Chicago Hack Weekend 2013, running from Friday April 26 to Sunday April 28, 2013. We’ll join other OpenStreetMap developers for a weekend of improving and inventing OpenStreetMap tools. There is already a diverse set of topics shaping up, some of the areas we’d like to focus on are presets, GPX layers and inline help for the iD editor, TIGER alignment work and improving the newly relaunched LearnOSM.
