We’ve talked about how awesome WhereCamp SF has been for our team to attend as a venue for sharing tech ideas with new and old friends and encouraging collaboration on open source tools. So we have been helping make it shine locally - MapBox is a gold sponsor, Development Seed is a bronze, Bonnie has been helping the lead planners Nathaniel and Kate with logistics, Saman designed the t-shirts, and Matt worked on the banners.
Many of us are attending. Look for Eric who will give an ignite talk on TileMill, our open source map design studio, and where Development Seed sees the future of mapping headed.
Hope to see you there! And you can always follow along at #wherecampdc.
