Speaker: Erik Escoffier (Vizzuality)

Person large

Erik is a developer who fell deeply in love with maps.
First as a multimedia developer, then a frontender, he’s been tinkering since about 8 years with a broad set of technologies and languages (Javascript, node, Unity3D, Haxe, augmented reality, interactive installations…), and is now fully dedicated to experiment with maps and geo data.
As a member of the CartoDB team in Madrid, his two main focus are building proof-of-concepts in the realms of open source geo, interactive/web maps, location intelligence and data-vizualisations, as well as interacting with the geo and web dev communities, giving workshops and providing support.
When he’s not coding, Erik likes books, mountains, running and belgian beer (successively or at the same time).
