Join Ward Cunningham, inventor of the wiki and chairman of the ZoomAtlas Technical Advisory Board, as he discusses how the wiki is shaping geo-social networking Web site ZoomAtlas, a photo-realistic geo-social wiki-mapping site that combines the technology of interactive maps with social networking to connect its users with people and places from their past and present. Learn how ZoomAtlas is differentiating itself in the geo-social landscape, how the creative application of core technologies behind the ZoomAtlas wiki-map is unique from other maps on the Internet, and what user trends ZoomAtlas has seen since its launch in November 2009.
Cunningham is the Chief Inventor of AboutUs.org, a growth company hosting the communities formed by organizations and their constituents, and currently serves as the chairman of the technical advisory board for ZoomAtlas. He also co-founded the consultancy, Cunningham & Cunningham, Inc., has served as a Director of the Eclipse Foundation, an Architect in Microsoft’s Patterns & Practices Group, the Director of R&D at Wyatt Software and as Principle Engineer in the Tektronix Computer Research Laboratory. Ward is well known for his contributions to the developing practice of object-oriented programming, the variation called Extreme Programming, and the communities supported by his WikiWikiWeb. Ward hosts the AgileManifesto.org. He is a founder of the Hillside Group and there created the Pattern Languages of Programs conferences which continue to be held all over the world.
