User Group Meeting – The MapWare Conference

On 15th and 16th November developers and speakers gathered in Karlsruhe to join the annual PTV MapWare Conference (see post of November 10, 2011) and discuss future trends and applications. The evening program in the Unimog Museum in Gaggenau (visit Website) included a drive in an Unimog and informal dinner which created a relaxed atmosphere for everyone involved.

The workshops on the following day were characterized by professional speakers (including Microsoft, HaCon, Sycor) and a large turnout of participants. A highlight was certainly the well-established “playground”, where the entire PTV Developer Components development team came together to face and answer the sometimes tricky questions from the audience.
