Vote for Mapping and the Future at DrupalCon Denver


2 min read

We’ve submitted two sessions for DrupalCon Denver based on our work making beautiful custom maps with MapBox’s toolset and fast data sites with Node.js and Javascript. Session voting is now open and anyone with a login can cast a vote to help shape the schedule. Voting closes at midnight on Monday, November 14 so if you’d like to see these topics covered at DrupalCon, vote now.

Here are more details on our two sessions. Follow the links for additional information on both and to cast your vote.

Designing Fast, Beautiful Maps

Alex and Eric will show how to design beautiful custom maps with any data set using open source tools from MapBox. They’ll show examples of what’s possible — like NPR’s Census map and the World Food Programme’s Horn of Africa famine map — and then dive into how to do it. By the end of the session, everyone will have seen an interactive, mobile-friendly web map made from scratch and launched on a Drupal site. Vote here.

Node.js, JavaScript, and the Future

For the past year we have been using Node.js and JavaScript to build fast data sites. Jeff will talk about what it’s like to use JavaScript for everything, going in depth on node.js, its ‘event loop’ execution model, and async. He’ll then compare it to PHP, talking about what each does well and where they’re lacking. Vote here.
