New presentation added - CodeMania - Google Maps Quick Start Guide

I've uploaded the presentation from tonight's talk at CodeMania after dark.   

It was great fun showing everyone how easy it is to create your own Google map, and it was quite interesting the number of people afterwards who said they'd always thought it was something difficult to do.  

Lots of people are hopefully now going away to play with customising their own Google maps and with any luck creating loads of funky fun things to play with online.   

I can't quite name the overall highlight of the evening for me, but it's a close run thing between the great diversity of topics covered by the other amazing speakers, Corey's disco ball hoodie and Zak the Cat!

I'm doing a lightning talk on creating custom Google maps - very lightning, how to create a map in 10 mins - phew... this will require some fast talking.

If you're not going to the event and you want to check out the quick start guide to creating a custom Google map, then check out the presentation.
