Do you have a webpage with the full code (html, js, css) to test how it works?

My dear… Remy? Tia? Both?
Whoever you are, your wish is granted: CGWin Demo

Not content to merely offer a live example of our Custom Google Info Windows, we’ve also updated our implementation with panToView capability – that is, when you click on a marker and the resulting info window is outside the current map bounds, the map will now pan the minimum amount necessary to show the full info window.

It’s not as easy as you might expect! Let’s take a look at what we have to do to make this happen (and then note the demo page again, just for good measure).


My First Hackathon

Berlin Geekettes Hackathon - Berlin, Oct 11th, 12th, 13th

Berlin Geekettes Hackathon – Berlin, Oct 11th, 12th, 13th

After working from “home” for the past dozen or so years, it just dawned on me. Other than what I see on my screen, I’m entirely out of touch with my fellow designers and developers! Suddenly, I had a craving for some human interaction in my professional life and decided to venture out and sign up for a few meetups and local tech events in Berlin.

A friend told me about the Berlin Geekettes, a community of women dedicated to helping aspiring and established females in the tech industry. They offer a mentorship program, they host lectures and workshops, and… an all-women hackathon? 

I signed up.
