The famous WhereCamp geo-unconference is hitting Washington, DC this Friday and Saturday in its inaugural edition — and it’s completely sold out. WhereCampDC Ignite talks are happening tomorrow evening at 7:00 pm, with the WhereCampDC unconference taking place on all day Saturday. There will also be a happy hour starting at 5:30 on Saturday at the Big Hunt that’s open to everyone, so if you didn’t get tickets to WhereCamp, you still have a chance to come talk geo this weekend.
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.
