Blog Post created by gletham_geojobe on Sep 7, 2017

Here we are in early September. Have you migrated to 10.5 or moved to ArcGIS Pro yet? With this in mind, have you started planning for Esri DevSummit yet? Be sure to circle March 6-9, 2018 on your calendar and consider some of the opportunities that await you and your dev team.

Get Ready for DevSummit 2018

If you’re a geospatial developer – or aspire to be one – the 2018 Esri Developer Summit (DevSummit) Palm Springs is a can’t-miss event. The event takes place March 6-9, 2018 and offers a unique opportunity to engage one-on-one with leading geo developers, who are building the most advanced tools and technology available from Esri.

What you can expect at DevSummit:

  • Be first to adopt, first to develop, and first to market after getting hands-on training with new SDKs, APIs, and app builders for creating advanced geospatial apps—powered by The Science of Where.
  • Don’t miss out on this opportunity to connect, collaborate, and learn from industry thought leaders within the global developer community.
  • Discover ways to better leverage your GIS investment, and test-drive ArcGIS on a variety of devices.
  • Streamline how you build native applications with ArcGIS Runtime SDKs. Plus, bounce ideas and challenges off the staff
  • Explore best practices for development patterns, problem solving, deployment challenges, and platform integration.
  • get your questions answered by the people responsible for building and deploying apps with ArcObjects, Python, and the ArcGIS SDK for the Microsoft. NET framework.
  • Get the scoop on the next generations ArcGIS API for JavaScript (version 4.0) that will support 2D and 3D web apps. Plus, catch demos.

We were fortunate to attend the 2017 Esri DevSummit where Esri, a couple of hundred of their team, about 1,000 business partner member reps, and a couple of thousand developers gathered to hear about The Science of Where (TM). Great news for developers and those who couldn’t attend though as Esri has released the entire video collection from the DevSummit tech sessions – 163 videos in all! Some great online learning opportunities here for those wanting an introduction or some advanced training in such topics as: JavaScript, .Net, Python, extending Web AppBuilder, working with Vector Tiles, ArcGIS 10.5, and much more! Esri staffers delivered a number or presentations in the demo theater and you can see them all HERE.
