Details

This is part of our series of tech talks given by our current immersive students.

This talk will be held in English and German (if there is demand), though Japanese speakers are encouraged to come! Translation help in Japanese will be provided for those who need it.

**Summary:**

What are Geocodes and how do you use them?

We'll be exploring how APIs like Google's Map API calculates the distances between two geocodes. We will also go over how to build a radius search and how to interpolate a geocode.
