Our friends at Navteq are having a developer day on Thursday, June 23. NavTeq is a location-based mapping solution that we are big fans of. You can expect to see demos, hands-on support, and PRIZES! And, of course, you can expect to see lots and lots of code. The A-Z demos will have you walk way with a real understanding of how to add their features to your apps.
The rather good looking agenda includes:
• NAVTEQ LocationPoint™ Advertising APIs and how to monetize your app
• Bing Maps SDKs and Geocoding APIs
• Esri ArcGIS APIs and SDKs
• deCarta mobile APIs for Android, HTML5, iPhone, J2ME and Samsung bada
The day will end with a sandbox, hacking, feedback, and the aforementioned PRIZES (we at GetJar love nothing more than PRIZES)
At the end of the day, stick around to play with the APIs and hack away, get some feedback and win some cool prizes. The event will be at the Plug and Play Tech Center in Sunnyvale and is free to all attendees. Questions can be sent to NAVTEQDevDay@navteq.com.
Register today! See you there!

The 2010 Big Android BBQ in Austin, #BigAndroidBBQ was an incredible event. It brought together fans, bloggers, podcasters, developers, root hackers and ROM rockstars together. The sea of green shirts, beer, cool breeze, sunshine, Texas BBQ Brisket, and good old fashioned geek conversation made for a great event.
Demoed Galaxy’s Tab and a Texas Instruments Cowboid.
Well done to the team and a shout out to @RayWalters for hooking @GetJarDeveloper up!
