We live in exciting times as Bing Maps developers, and these next few month look to continue to be exciting as we have two upcoming developer events to attend.
The first event is the Microsoft Bing Maps developer day on 25th November in Reading which you can register for here http://is.gd/4NFjv. Come and hear Earthware’s Brian Norman talk about our experience developing the Bing Maps World Tour application for Microsoft. Also speaking are the excellent Johannes Kebeck (Microsoft) and Ricky Brundrit (Infusion Development). If you haven’t had much time recently to keep up with the latest releases, especially the Silverlight control then it’s and event not to miss.
The second event is even more exciting for us as it has taken a long while for a UK Bing Maps developer community to emerge but it looks like we are there now. Put the evening of 13th January 2009 in you diary now as it will be the first meeting of the Bing Maps UK User Group! This will be an opportunity for us developers to really kick back and geek out on Bing Maps, with free bear and pizza to set the right mood. This is a community run event, the first meeting being sponsored by Microsoft, which we hope will inspire us continue to create great Bing Maps applications here in the UK.
