Silicon Valley Google Technology User Group to host maps meeting

Ever wondered how to create maps like this Primary Election Results Map, created by Michael Geary? If so, please join us in at the Googleplex (Bldg 43, main campus, room Tunis) on the evening of April 2nd. Michael will be on hand to show you how. This gathering is being co-hosted by the Google GEO Developer Series and the recently formed Silicon Valley Google Technology User Group (which is not affiliated with Google). A networking hour with food and drinks starting at 5:30pm will be followed by Michael's talk at 6:30pm. Although this is a free event open to all, we do ask that you register in advance.

During the evening, we're also inviting community members to come forward and do short (no more than 5 minutes) demos of their own Google GEO applications during the networking hour. If you would like to participate in that way, please contact me. I'll be coordinating the networking hour demos. That's all, folks.


  1. Wonder if you guys consider to host some meetings in London as well? I am a big fan of Google

  2. You could consider starting a Google Technology User Group (GTUG) in London. I know that Google would support you in doing that. The Silicon Valley GTUG is not run by Google, it is run by Google Technology enthusiasts like myself that live and work in Silicon Valley. I can put you (or anyone else for that matter) in touch with the right folks at Google to start your own GTUG. If there is a Google campus in your area, there is a good chance you could get Google to sponsor your meetings on that campus like ours are sponsored by Google at the Googleplex in Mountain View.
