GeoMonday the 2nd – Event Review

For those of you who were in Berlin 21st and 22nd of June the days have been simply geotastic. The campus of Beuth University of Applied Science hosted this time WhereCamp Berlin, GeoMonday and Pub Summit. Over 400 people had registered to connect the dots between Mapping, Innovation and Entrepreneurship.

WhereCamp Berlin is a Location Barcamp which already took place the 3rd time. Several speakers gave great insides about what is hot in todays Mapping and Geo domain. If you want to get more information please visit http://wherecamp.de. In the evening our event started, finally. The venue Beuth Halle was a great environment for our 2nd session. This time 3D Buildings, Mobile & Desktop Maps, Personalized Search and Geo-referenced Data were the topics. More than 30 people in the audience followed these crisp presentations. The speakers had to answer several questions afterwards, e.g. technical details or about business models.

pubsummitAt 8pm we finished and moved gently over to our co-session the Berlin Pub Summit. Around 25 people from various Berlin based startups joined us lately. As a road show of the Dublin Web Summit this is a must see event. the founder of the event, Paddy Cosgrave himself and his wife joined us as well. I was interesting to see how seamlessly the Geo community and the IT startup crowd got together and shared experiences.

If you like the event or if you suggestions how to do better next times please write us to info@geomonday.org. We also looking for new topics for our next event. Please don’t hesitate and write to the same email address your proposals.

Finally we wanna give some credits to all who made that event possible. A special thanks goes to the Beuth University of Applied Sciences for the free and fantastic venue.

GeoMonday the 1st – Event Review

Woooah, what a day – precisely evening! What started pretty calm 6:30pm at Nokia House Berlin became really great. We were excited to see more than 50 participants showing up and enjoying┬á the venue featuring a great view over Berlin. The initial kickoff was given 7:30pm by a little introduction from our GeoMonday team. After this little warm up everyone had the pleasure to not only watch 4 interesting talks, but also get involved with the speakers afterwards. Topics went from smart location data to horse riders maps, difficulties of outdoor guidance and the challenge to gather and process community data. After the official part around 2 dozen people stood to further discuss and get connected.

It was an absolutely amazing session and I wanna say: Thank you to all who helped making that happen! Seeing people coming from universities, start-ups or those who want to create one, up to small and medium sized enterprises convinced us, that GeoMonday is the right platform for all the GeoGeeks around to stay up-to-date and get connected.
