Startup Weekend Events on Google Maps
Startup Weekends are weekend meet-ups where entrepreneurs and aspiring entrepreneurs come together to share ideas, form teams, build products, and launch startups. The Startup Weekend Upcoming Events map displays upcoming events with the Google Maps API.
The initial map view shows the Startup Weekend events scheduled for the coming month around the world. A control in the map sidebar allows the user to change the month. When the user selects a different month from the sidebar the events for that month are automatically displayed on the map.
The map uses the Styled Maps feature of the Google Maps API to create map tiles that complement the color-scheme of the Startup Weekend website.
