About this event

Only subscription through that link will be considered,

For the 5th year running MapsPeople and BrainsBusiness invite Developers, Students, IT Managers, Nerds and all other Google Enthusiasts to the coolest IT event in Aalborg - GOOGLE I/O EXTENDED.

The event will kick off with a Google inspired Codelab where you as a developer have the chance to get your hands on some of the latest technology – and as always, the event will peak with our live streaming of the keynote from Google I/O 2017 straight from the Shoreline Amphitheatre Mountain View, California. 

We are happy to announce this year's I/O Extended codelab:

Mapping the New York City Subway

Store locators are an often required component of any commercial website that wants to encourage users to visit bricks and mortar stores. In this codelab you'll build a website that serves location data, and scales automatically, thanks to the power of Google App Engine. We show you how to expose an easily navigable visualization of the NYC subway using Google Maps JavaScript API.

What you'll build

In this codelab, you'll build a visualization for the NYC Subway Station dataset that is:

Scalable - you'll use Google App Engine to automatically scale your serving capability to match request load. Maintainable - you'll use the Go programming language to make the back end code simple, reliable, and efficient. Customizable - you'll style the map using the styling capability of the Google Maps JavaScript API, with the help of Google Maps Style Wizard.

There are no more available spaces for the Codelab - if you wish to participate, sign up for our waiting list in the registration form. We will contact you if a space becomes available for you. 

The Codelab will be run by Matt Toon, Sales Engineer at Google and the MapsPeople Development Team.

Google I/O Extended 2017 will be held at the CREATE building at Aalborg University, which holds up to 250 people, so be sure to register today.
