Galen Harry is the Marketing Events Team Lead – On-Site Events at Esri. We didn’t actually sit down for this interview, since Galen is usually running around campus delivering items for onsite meetings and checking on the status of conference rooms. Instead, we laced up our best cross training shoes and tried to keep up as he blanketed the Esri campus.

The hallways at Esri are buzzing as the development teams get ready for the Esri UC in San Diego, happening in a little over two months. To get some insight into what is happening, we grabbed Jay Theodore, the CTO of the server group at Esri, and asked him a little about himself and what he is preparing for San Diego. Jay leads the ArcGIS Server and Portal for ArcGIS software development teams at Esri and as we suspected, his teams have been working on some pretty exciting developments that they want to talk to you about at the Esri UC.
Mappers everywhere who harness the power of geographic information system (GIS) technology to tell their stories can now enter Esri’s Storytelling with Maps Contest. Esri is inviting users to submit their top Esri Story Map projects for a chance at prizes and peer recognition at the largest gathering of Esri software users in the world—the Esri User Conference.
Contest participants can submit up to three preexisting or new maps between now and June 8, 2015.
Esri UC has always been about celebrating your GIS accomplishments. And what better way to say congratulations than with a big, fun party? Each year, we end the conference by throwing the largest, mappiest, geogeekiest party in the world.
And this year, we’d like you to pick where we host the Esri UC party!
And it’s something to see! There are lots of sessions to choose from – 992 actually. You’ll find something for everyone.
