Session three from Developer Day in London

I've been wandering around for the last session checking out the various different talks going on.

Ian and Matt from BBC Backstage entertained the crowd in one of our breakout rooms, talking about the trials of supporting the developer community while also battling through the traditional BBC bureaucracy. They have built up a large community of developers, all doing interesting things with BBC content (some combining it with Google tools such as maps and gadgets), and run a thriving mailing list and social event scene.

Meanwhile next door, our Maps API workshop saw teams pitted together to create the best maps mashup with an environmental theme, with prizes for the winners. We have workshops in each European country taking part in Developer Day, all working to create one big mashup by the end of the day.

On the other side of the building in the main hall, Peter Birch gave a presentation in Google Earth, and even used Google Earth as a presentation tool itself.
