It’s been a while since my last blog post; my day job at Nokia has been taking up almost all of my time and what little time has been left has been spent with my family. But in between day job and family time there’s evenings spent in a hotel room and hours spent on a plane, mainly between London’s Heathrow and Berlin’s Tegel airports. It’s in these periods of time that a combination of my MacBook Pro, running a combo of Apache/MySQL/PHP with MAMP and TextMate has allowed me to rediscover the pleasure of what I used to do for my day job before Yahoo! and before Nokia … and that’s to write code.
There’s a demo of some of the major features of both Mapstraction and the Ovi Maps API over at maps.vicchi.org and, in the spirit of social coding, the source for that is on github as well.
