Join us at 7pm on Monday, November 15th at the NH-ICC building for the regular monthly meetup of NHRuby. This month, we have New Hampshire’s newest resident rubyist, Peter Jackson, presenting “Introduction to (Geo)Spatial Programming”.

Location-based applications are everywhere, yet most modern Rubyists haven’t ventured far beyond superimposing a few locations on a Google Map. In this talk, the Rubyist will learn about the many spatial programming possibilities within the Ruby landscape, including non-location-based applications, geographic applications using custom imagery, answering difficult questions using spatial queries, Moving Beyond the Dot-On-The-Map, and how to get started with Geospatial Programming today.
