Heads up, there's a new WhereCamp in town!
October 28th - 30th
Microsoft NERD Center
What is a WhereCamp? A WhereCamp is a volunteer-created unconference for anyone interested in geography and technology. An unconference is an event planned by the participants through an online wiki and on the spot. The event is open to anyone, but you don’t just attend a WhereCamp — you can host or participate in discussions, demo your projects, or join another cooperative event. WhereCamp topics include: GIS, web mapping, technology, marketing, startups, development, social media, gadgets, communities, design, hardware hacking, entrepreneurship, open source software, mobile computing, social software, and much, much more!
WhereCamp Boston starts with Spatial Startups at Dogpatch Labs on Friday evening. Prior to any sessions, we welcome you to come socialize with entrepreneurs from the Boston area startup community. This is an informal event – no schedule to speak of, but there will be a classroom available for demos if the need arises.
WhereCamp Boston showcases a selection of keynote speakers on Saturday and Sunday, interspersed among community-organized sessions. The keynote speakers for WhereCamp Boston are:
Andres Ferrate, Geo Developer Relations Manager, Google
Tom MacWright, Mapbox Developer, Development Seed
Jeff Warren, Co-founder and Research Director, Public Laboratory for Open Technology and Science

Community organized sessions are the bulk of the unconference, and are created by participants like you. Community organized sessions are governed by the “law of two feet” – find a session that you like, and feel free to explore the other sessions throughout the weekend. There is a WhereCamp Boston wiki at http://wiki.wherecamp... which contains session ideas and more.
We hope to see you there!
