Raj's talk:

The Evolution of Mobile Mapping

Location services is one of the most interesting areas of web development today. Technologies that were once too complex and esoteric to be used by anyone outside of NASA or the military became standard offerings for the likes of Hotels.com and Foursquare, and are now being regularly deployed by even the smallest startups. In this session Raj will track the evolution of mobile mapping and talk about the rich capabilities around location now available to even casual mobile developers around mapping, demographics and location-aware customer insights.
