Here we go with Day Two of DevSummit! Loved starting the day reading the inspiring work shared on the Science of Where wall. So let us know below...what are you working on? What does The Science of Where mean to you? Thanks for sharing and have a great Day Two! 





Time for the keynote featuring: Todd Greene, Cofounder and CEO of PubNub, sharing what he's learned through his work and where dev is heading. Great talk! Here's some highlights.  What did you like? What did you learn?


Update: Check out the full video below:



  • Todd doesn't wear a suit jacket when he codes.
  • PubNub key stats: Over... 1.8 trillion monthly transactions, 330 million unique monthly devices, 15+ data centers
  • The streaming web is an emerging trend
  • The Hollywood Operating System (HOS) has been setting expectation for decades
  • We must find ways to solve the Yummy Soda data Conundrum
  • Remember South Park's Gnomes Underpants business model? Learn from it. Don't follow it.  
  • "To handle future state: app logic must be distributed everywhere"  
  • What's coming..? -> Esri blocks: routing, Base maps, GeoEnrichment 








That's a wrap for the keynote! Enjoy the rest of your day and check back for more updates. Drop a comment below to say hello and let us know what you're learning. Thanks for sharing! 



The Code was alive and thriving this afternoon. Here's a few highlights as I cruised through the sessions and spent time connecting with GeoNet Community members. (Special thanks to Carol Sousa, Mohand KETTOUCHEMark Cygan and Glenn Letham for sharing the photos on social media. We appreciate you allowing us to feature them here.)


The Applications Prototype Lab team shared some insightfully green presidential quotes and complex "Betweenness Centrality" code equations to kick off and then dove into sharing the works they've been doing building applications that support the Green Infrastructure project. 





During the ArcGIS Python API session, a packed Primerose room followed along as Atma Mani and Rohit Singh on the Esri team answered the all-important "What can it do for you?" question and demoed real-time scenarios. Got more questions? Check out what other users are saying and experiencing in the ArcGIS API for Python group. 





Then it was time for another fantastic meet-up chat with GeoNet Community member, Robert Scheitlin, GISP. We talked about his dev background, the community roadmap and the future of the gamification and points system within GeoNet, of which Robert has reached the highest level.  If you're not already, you should follow Robert. Like other top Geonet members, he graciously shares his GIS and dev knowledge to help others solve problems and work better making him a perfect example of how to contribute and connect others within the community. 





In case you missed it, throughout the day, our Esri social media shared a nice collection of videos celebrating International Women's Day. Check them out here and here.



And that's a wrap for today! We couldn't get to it all, so tell us what you loved and learned the most today in the comments below. Thanks for sharing the day with us!
