Painless web maps with Leaflet.js
Submitted by Yuvi Panda (@yuvipanda) on Sunday, 19 August 2012
Section: Technology Technical level: Intermediate Session type: Demo
- Introduce Leaflet.js, breeze through mapping fundamentals
- Show off some of the more advanced Leaflet.js features (Overlays, Editing, etc)
- Talk about major pain points when using Leaflet.js
I'll use demos much more than slides, and occasionally show a little snippet of code to demonstrate the utter simplicity of the Leaflet.js API
Yuvi Panda is a 21 year old open source geek who chases shiny new things way too often. He wrote major parts of the Wikipedia Android/iOS app (which included a mapping component), and the upcoming Wiki Loves Monument app (which has a major mapping component). He's also written POSM, a nice mobile editor for OSM. Amongst his hobbies is taunting people who still use OpenLayers. He's currently a student at KCG College of Technology.
