Our keynote speaker for 2017 will be Sarah Harling with Apple Inc., the popular technology and computing company based in Cupertino, California. Sarah is a cartographer working with Apple Maps.
Before joining Apple in 2013, she produced maps for the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency, served as map librarian at San Francisco State University, and worked at several nonprofits in research and educational positions.
Sarah holds a BA in Peace and Conflict Studies from the University of California - Berkeley, and an MA in Geography from San Francisco State University. Sara is excited about the ways in which technology and the liberal arts can be combined to improve mapping software and more importantly, the customer experience.
