A while back, I built a cute little toy that let you track UPS packages on a Google map. My original title for this was “Where the hell is my stuff?” but since I wanted it to be more family friendly, I titled it “My First Mashup“.
Since then, I’ve presented this talk 3 times and each time it gets more fun. However, I feel that this talk is nearing the end of it’s life. So I’ve packaged everything up and put it on the web for all to see. myfirstmashup.com has all the code you need to build your own copy of this. My slides from the most recent version are there as well as working examples should you just want to track a package. (Which, from the database cache I keep of cities, I see some of you are doing.)
If you saw the presentation but wanted the most recent version of the code, it’s there. If you didn’t get a chance to see the presentation, consider this a DIY kit, everything you need is there, just put all the pieces together.
Until next time,
