Hi Paul, We have a great tech event going on at Tech In Motion next Tuesday that I think you might be interested in, the Tech Trunk Show: http://www.meetup.com/TechinMotionPhi... If you're free we would love to have you!
GeoPhilly unites developers, geographers, data geeks, open source enthusiasts, civic hackers, and map addicts in our shared love of maps and the facts they visualize and stories they tell. If you use maps at your job, want to use them more, or just want to learn more about the “why of where”, this is the meetup for you!
Our events aim to be open, friendly, educational and social and may range from happy hours to lightning talks or even workshops. Come create a diverse, inspiring geospatial community in the Philadelphia area with us!
