You need to have a server to host this on in order to tap into the Google
Maps API, and you need to register a user key that ties to your web host
with Google in order to use the API.
Then, the job becomes -
- create a bone simple web page
(their online docs are really good to give you a starter)
- figure out how to put one push-pin into it
- figure out how to put many push-pins into it and modify their
attributes for colour, labels, etc.
I went from zero to knowing how to do the above in about 3 hours when I did
this last year. If you've done it before then getting re-familiarized with
it is going to take a lot less.
That's 1/2 of the job. The other 1/2 is just digging around online through
the world of Perl lore re: what Perl conferences there have been and where
they were on what given year. And then translating that into lat/long for
Google Maps push-pins.
