A great story of how one young woman decided to learn a little bit about coding and caught the bug. Now she’s taken things to another level and wants to help young women everywhere get into coding – enter the Karlie Kloss’s Coding Camps for girls. According to this article in FastCo, this summer, Kloss is taking it up a notch by launching her own Kode with Klossy coding camps for young women aged 13-18 in Los Angeles, New York, and her hometown of St. Louis, using Flatiron’s Learn.co curriculum and learning platform.
The one where I drive back to San Diego from Palm Springs and talk about a few days at DevSummit with the GeoGeeks! In this solo edition I rolled a solo Devsummit summary while driving back from Palm Springs… What did you like most about DevSummit?
The one where Glenn goes for a solo ride and shares some PR and news release posting tips. Glenn shares a few tips on how to share your PR release with the Geotech community, what topics you could share as PR and more valuable pointers.
Ever wondered to yourself, how does LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) work?? Here’s a simple video that may help should some light on the topic for you. About the video… This NEON Science video overviews what lidar or light detection and ranging is, how it works and what types of information it can provide. The video was produced by the National Ecological Observatory Network – a non profit project devoted to open science and open data.
Are you up for another fun, geeky interview video? Recently, while visiting SoCal, I dropped into Redlands, CA to visit with some of the GeoGeeks. while there I ran into Jim Barry who heads up the EDN team with Esri. Join us while we drive around the Esri campus and the city center in Redlands talking about Geo developers, the Esri DevSummits, dodge ball, and a few other goodies. Enjoy! Note, you can find all the episodes of GeoGeeks driving in cars for coffee HERE
A video interview of interest from our partner site LiDAR Magazine – Live @ Autodesk University 2015: Interview with Matt Mason, Director of Software Development, IMAGINiT Technologies. Topics include:How does the release of IMAGINiT 2016.1 Scan to BIM help architects and designers model reality capture?
- How does the release of IMAGINiT 2016.1 Scan to BIM help architects and designers model reality capture?
- How does SCAN to BIM add value to 3D laser scanning?
- What trends do you see in reality capture and how will this effect IMAGINiT’s software development?
So, here’s something I’ve been thinking about for some time – GeoGeeks Driving in cars for Coffee! A trial post for what’s to come.
Join me, Glenn (@gletham) on a short drive to catch up on the latest in GeoTech. Hopefully I’ll have periodic guest GeoGeeks join me and we’ll go for a drive, grab a coffee and chat mobile, geotech, baseball, beer, and ?? This first kick-off episode went a little longer than I had imagined, expect shorter segments in the future (unless viewers want otherwise). In this show I talk about ESRIUC, ESRI DevSummit, A webinar from TerraGo, and the new PDF Maps Affiliate program from Avenza. Enjoy and please do share some feedback with me!
Like many of the readers here, I’m into maps, mapping technology and anything location-aware it seems. A recent visit to the California HQ of HERE (think Nokia maps) provided me with a glimpse inside the company and an up close look at the technology they use to create and deliver such an awesome in-vehicle mapping experience.
