by Maptime HQ // Alan McConchie, Beth Schechter, Camille Teicheira, Lyzi DiamondSince we had our very first, very tiny meetup in June of 2013, Maptime has blossomed into an international movement. Our community has become not only a resource for teachers, but a network supporting nearly 50 chapters around the world and hundreds, if not thousands, of volunteers and students. The organization’s exponential surge in popularity is indicative of growing demand to learn open source geo for the web. What does this mean for the future of this educational area? Come learn about our journey, and where we see all of this going next.
