About this Mapbox Live session

Adding maps and location to your app usually means kicking your users out to third-party mapping providers. Mapbox building blocks allow you to increase user retention and drive revenue by adding mapping and search directly into your app. This webinar will cover how to use the same tools companies like Lonely Planet, Snapchat, The Weather Channel, Human, and Foursquare used to create gorgeous mobile user experiences.

Presenters Jordan Kiley (iOS Engineer) and Langston Smith (Android Engineer) will dig in and explain how to quickly get started with our Maps SDKs for iOS & Android, a core building block for creating a mobile mapping experience.

This Live session is made for developers and product managers who want to better understand how location plays a role in driving mobile engagement. Viewers will learn the steps for adding maps and location search to social media, travel, real estate, fitness, and weather apps. Let us know what else you want to learn and we’ll address your questions as well as any live ones during the session.
