For our first of three developer meetups, we stopped in Boulder, CO—after traveling from Arches National Park. We were thrilled to have a packed house at our first Code the Road meetup, with our attendees maxing out our 80-person capacity. We held four technical talks, an outdoor barbecue and met with many new friends. We hope everyone who attended enjoyed the evening.

First up was Google Maps APIs Engineering Manager James McGill who gave a talk titled Using the Google Maps APIs in your iOS or Android App.

Next, we were happy to welcome Chase Brammer, Head of iFit Product Development from our friends at iFit. Chase gave a talk about how the iFit technology brings hikes into your home using the Google Maps APIs.

I was up next outlining how you can use the Google Maps APIs with Google Cloud Platform to supercharge your apps. Closing out our round of tech talks was Nirav Patel, Director of Geospatial Solutions at Dito who outlined how they helped their client, Kocomojo, optimize Bluetooth iBeacon Technology using the Google Maps APIs.

We’re looking forward to sharing a recap of our visit to Milwaukee at the Harley-Davidson Museum in the afternoon, and if you can make it, register for our Chicago and New York developer meetups. See you on the road!
