The project contains an open source framework and API that enables big data developers to author custom spatial applications for Hadoop. Continue reading
This is the point Steve Riley was driving home in his keynote presentation at the 2012 Esri Dev Summit today. Being the CTO of Riverbed Technology, as well as having Amazon and Microsoft on his resume, he’s got some legit experience lending credit to his intelligent and animated dialog this morning on the paradigm shift into a cloud infrastructure.
“Change happens. You have to adapt or die” Riley pointed out. Adaptation is key to human progress. The wine press turned into a printing press (did that turn into twitter?). Smart organizations are getting in front of cloud technology and Riley laid out several steps he called architecture lessons for building a successful cloud implementation. Continue reading
Over the last couple of days at the 2012 Esri Partner Conference and Developer Summit we’ve had a number of questions about ArcGIS Explorer Desktop and the road ahead. If you’re at the DevSummit this afternoon Mark Bockenhauer and Jim Barry will present and demonstrate some of the new features coming up in the Explorer Desktop 2012 release at the Getting Started with ArcGIS Explorer Desktop SDK session.
The geodatabase team is down here in Palm Springs for the 2012 Esri Developer Summit, and it’s the largest one yet with 1700 attendees!
The plenary session gave a good overview of the new functionality coming with 10.1, which is set to be released in June.
The morning was filled with well spoken Esri employees, most with amazing accents, giving everyone a glimpse into the future release.
Some highlights were new enhancements with ArcGIS 10.1 for Server, including new improved tools in server manager, publishing and sharing of services is now much easier, there were some good demos surrounding published geoprocessing services, lots of great ArcGIS Online improvements to facilitate building great maps and apps, and some good scripting examples which led to the unveiling of a new Python resource where you can find useful samples to enhance your GIS workflows: Cafe Python.

The 2012 Esri Developer Summit is coming up soon March 26 – 29 in Palm Springs, California. Although the Dev Summit has a relaxed, small conference feel, Esri sends an enormous pool of technical staff to visit with attendees throughout the week.
This year’s Dev Summit will introduce ArcGIS 10.1, which is just weeks away from completion. We’ll be demonstrating how you can administer your 10.1 server purely with web services, more easily launch elastic deployments, publish services to ArcGIS Online, view real-time progress reports as map caches are building, and more.
You can search the online agenda by track if you want to see all the sessions on a particular topic, or you can search by name if you’re looking for a particular Esri staff member. You’ll find many contributors to this blog at the Dev Summit answering questions and presenting workshops. Ask any staff member at the Esri showcase your question, and he or she will attempt to direct you to the software engineers or tech sessions where you are most likely to get the best answer. The “Meet the Teams” event on Tuesday evening also offers an informal opportunity to mingle with Esri staff and other attendees.
We look forward to meeting you in Palm Springs!
This is the developer event for ArcGIS. Plan now to attend and get the inside developer details on ArcGIS 10.1
If you are a Flex developer attending to the User Conference, then
Special Interested Group (SIG) is a must-see event! It’s in room 5 A/B,
Tuesday July 12th from 12pm – 1pm. This year we have quite a show in
store for you. We’ve changed up the format to include not only a keynote but
several lightning talks and awesome raffle prizes.
The Keynote will be delivered this year by Alan Greenblatt
who is a Senior Technologist at Adobe. He’s going to be talking about
FlashBuilder 4.5 cross-device support for iOS, Android, and Playbook. This is a
topic that everyone is talking about, especially after the latest release
4.5.1. We are also going to have three lightning talks from Critigen,
earthmine, and DTSAgile. Topics include Flex model-view-controller (MVC) design
pattern, 3D widget for the ArcGIS Viewer for Flex, and integrating collaboration
into the ArcGIS Viewer for Flex.
Lunch is being provided by Adobe, so you don’t have to worry about grabbing something to eat before stopping by. As for raffle prizes, many thanks again to Adobe because several lucky attendees will win a copy of FlashBuilder 4.5. The grand prize is a complimentary
registration to next year’s Esri DevSummit.
We hope to see you there!
Just wanted to let everyone that the proceedings from the 2011 Developer Summit are now avaliable online.
Lots of good content here from Esri staff and some outstanding User Presentations.
Dev Summit 2011 is over and I’m still trying to recovery from the busy but great week in Palm Springs. This year was the largest Dev Summit ever and there were some excellent session and good times for the nearly 1400 attendees. Here is a set of photos and videos from the week. More video from the Tech Sessions will be coming soon.
If you attended this year, I hope you came away inspired and equipped to make the most of GIS in your applications.
