Using Geo technologies to locate your boss.

Joe is the CTO of Human Made, and a busy person. He is constantly on the move, which is a problem when you want to catch him for a chat or meeting.

In this talk we will look at how we can harness technologies such as GeoIP and Geolocation to keep track of him. I will be sharing how we created a WordPress plugin that integrated Foursquare and GeoIP into an internal site, the quirks and pitfalls of these technologies and issues that have to be considered before trying to store timezones.

This session is aimed at developers who want to gain some insight into dealing with Geolocations, GeoIP and timezones. I will be sharing the problems and solutions I encountered when trying to make Joe easier to find.
