Greater Toronto Software Symposium

Rolling Your Own Google Maps
The release of Google Maps was a "Wizard of Oz / Technicolor" moment for web developers everywhere. It didn't just change the way we look at mapping sites; it forever changed the way we look at all web sites. It put AJAX on the map, both figuratively and literally.
Even if you don't have immediate plans to add maps to your website, come look at "the man behind the curtain". The hands-on, practical approach to learning AJAX in this talk will pay you dividends. The pretty map you get at the end is just the icing on the cake.
