WhereCamp Berlin is back with its 3rd edition of the geo-“unconference”.  This informal event, which covers topics in geography and related technologies, will take place on 21-22 of June 2013 at Beuth University of Applied Science in Berlin. REGISTRATION IS FREE and all geo-locative enthusiasts are welcome to present their projects, ideas and knowledge, or just listen and engage with a community of people immersed in the geo space.

"Ich Bin Geograph" - WhereCamp EU Is Coming To Berlin

In March 2010, Chris Osborne and myself transplanted the post-Where 2.0 WhereCamp from Silicon Valley and brought it to London. Judging by the feedback and comments we got during and after the event, it was a geotastic success and showed that Europe had an appetite for a 2 day, free, unconference on all matters geo. After a brief northbound sojourn as WhereCamp UK in November 2010, we're happy to announce that WhereCamp EU is back for 2011 and with a distinctly European flavour.

Whilst the venue is yet to be confirmed, WhereCamp EU will be taking place on the 27th and 28th of May in Berlin.

We'll keep you posted with more details on the WhereCamp EU blog , on Lanyrd and on our Twitter feed.

"Ich Bin Geograph" (as Google translate tells me).
