SearchMonkey Developer Event

Tonight I'll be attending the SearchMonkey Developer Event at Wallacespace in London:
SearchMonkey allows developers and site owners to use semantic web standards and structured data to enhance Yahoo! Search results and make them more useful, relevant, and visually appealing. Come meet the guys who created the product, and feel free to monkey around with them as you wish.
My usual plan to write a review on my web developer blog applies (I'll even use the hReview microformat!) providing I can find the time - I know I didn't manage to finish writing up the last event I attended yet, I'll try and get it finished today.

London Geek Night: AJAX

This week my (hopefully) mind expanding web developer evening out is London Geek Night: AJAX at the ThoughtWorks UK offices. From the description:
Web 2.0 may be something of cliche but users are expecting to interact with web pages in an increasingly dynamic way. Javascript toolkits can make it easier to sprinkle a little AJAX magic over your web application and JQuery has garnered a lot of praise for being concise, intuitive and powerful in a Javascript idiom.
This week I'm very confident there will be enough web development content to be worth writing the event up on my web development blog.

GIS: The Business Benefits

This week I plan to attend GIS: The Business Benefits at the BCS on Thursday:
In recent years there has been increasing pressure to improve business efficiencies, competitive advantage and resource utilisation. Whilst GIS technology is now mature the business aspects are paradoxically much less well developed. There are very few examples of the true business value of GIS projects, and no standardised methodology for estimating the value or return on investment of using GIS within organisations.
As ever, I plan to write up the talk in my web development blog, since I managed to write up all three things I went to last week already the chances of it appearing on time seem to be good :)
