Where 2.0 – 39% Earth Day Discount, GEB Holding Workshop

Although the deadline for early registration for Where 2.0 has gone by, O’Reilly is now offering a 39% discount for registration in honor of the upcoming Earth Day. I’ve attended the past three Where 2.0 conferences, and will be there again this year (in fact, I’m on the Program Committee). The conference is a great place to meet developers, bloggers, and users of the latest GeoWeb technologies. You can register now, just use the discount code of ‘whr09erd‘ to get the 39% discount. The conference will be in San Jose, California on May 19-21.
And, if you’re going to Where 2.0, you’ll have a chance to meet the author of Google Earth Blog – Frank Taylor (that’s me). I’ve been asked to hold a workshop titled “Extending Google Earth“. The workshop will be an open discussion about ways to leverage the Google Earth platform for all kinds of applications – with a special emphasis on the new Google Earth plugin, and GE 5 Tours and other features. The workshop will focus on demonstrating capabilities, and what can and can’t be done, while providing pointers to developer resources (as opposed to focusing on coding).
