Presentation by John Corry, Software Engineer at Yik Yak

When: Thursday, April 7th, 2016 — 7pm-9pm

Please RSVP at:

Our web applications and APIs capture, store, and generate huge amounts of data. There are powerful applications for providing a geographical context for this data. PHP (and MySQL…and MongoDB…and JavaScript) has some very useful tools for working with geographic data and they’re surprisingly easy to use. This talk is an introduction to some of those tools and how to incorporate them to give your web applications spatial context.

About John: John Corry has been developing web applications, mostly with PHP, since PHP 3. During that time he has done a lot of things the wrong way and enjoyed the emergence of vastly improved tools and methodologies for doing development better. He currently works at Yik Yak as a Software Engineer on the Systems/Tools team and can be reached by email at
