The Google Maps APIs team hits the road with ‘Code the Road’ in Europe

After an exciting road trip across the U.S. this summer, we decided to bring Code the Road to Europe to highlight what developers have made possible with the Google Maps APIs. We’ll be driving our customized 1979 Volkswagen T2 Bus with 50 Horsepower, 78Tkm on a four stop trip across Europe where along the way we’ll meet with developers, customer and partners.

Code the Road Europe kicks-off in Tel Aviv on November 10. From there we’ll be heading across Europe—stopping in Berlin, Hamburg and London.

We will also be hosting three developer meetups: Tel Aviv on November 10, Berlin on November 12 and London on November 25. The meetups will highlight how developers can use the Google Maps APIs in their apps and websites and include sessions with Google Engineers and customers. We’re expecting these meet-ups to fill-up quickly, so register today to reserve a seat at a location near you.

We’ll be hosting a 24-hour hackathon in Hamburg beginning the afternoon of November 18. Ubilabs and the Google Maps APIs team will be bringing developers, product managers and students together to develop innovative solutions to lend a hand in the Syrian Refugee Crisis.

We will be sharing on-the-road updates and photos on the site throughout the trip. We hope to see you on the road!
