Hey, who’s looking for an inexpensive and entertaining night out? Yeah, we thought so. That’s why we wanted to let you know about discussions that two of our team members are leading over the next few weeks about Google Maps and baseball history.
Here are the details:
Google Maps and the Google Maps API
ZAG developer Will Klein will be giving a talk for the Hartford Area Google Technology Users Group. He will discuss Google Maps and the Google Maps API at the New Horizons Training Facility in Bloomfield on Thursday, March 17. The event starts at 7:30 p.m. and is free and open to the public.
Will plans to cover the use of Google Maps from a business’s and developer’s perspective. He’ll explain how to register a business on Google so that it’s found on a Maps search, and he’ll cover the basics of integrating a Google Map on a web page.
Will has integrated Google Maps and directions for several clients’ website projects here at ZAG. The Google group is one of many around the country and comprises business owners, developers and technology professionals.
Connecticut Baseball History
Spring fever means baseball for some people, especially our copywriter Doug Malan.
On April 4, he’s leading a discussion about his book “Muzzy Field: Tales from a Forgotten Ballpark” at the Terryville (Conn.) Public Library starting at 6:30 p.m. He’ll also delve into the research and writing process that produced the book during an event that’s free and open to the public.
Doug’s book, which was a ForeWord magazine finalist for 2009 Book of the Year, chronicles the rich history of Muzzy Field in Bristol, Conn., one of the oldest ballparks in the country. In the nearly 100 years of its existence, the field has hosted more than three dozen Hall of Famers and some of the greatest icons in baseball and football history.
