Are you one of those people who constantly tinkers with apps? Do you find yourself regularly looking at the source code behind your favorite webpages? At the 2013 UC, we’ve organized an entire set of sessions, resources, and events just for you and other developers like you. Here are just a few of the highlights you’ll want to check out.
The 2013 UC agenda search and planner is now live! You can use our agenda app to find the sessions, workshops, and presentations that most interest you and start building a schedule for your week in San Diego. And if you haven’t registered for UC yet, showing your superiors your planned session load is a great way to help you justify your trip. The agenda search and planner also integrates with Outlook or iCal, so you can easily synch your schedule with your mobile device and stay on-track during UC.
For some people, it hits them the first time they walk into the Plenary Session and see 15,000 other geogeeks. For others, it comes after a chance meeting in the GeoLounge with someone who knows exactly what they’re going through. It’s that moment when you realize that the Esri UC isn’t just another conference—it’s a celebration of geography and innovation, and you play the leading role.
At 440,000 total square feet, the GIS Solutions EXPO is truly a sight to behold. Almost all of us can vividly recall our first encounter with the sprawling showcase that features more than 300 geospatial exhibitors interspersed with technical islands and demo theaters staffed by Esri’s experts.
Landsat imagery is essential for studying land use change over time. Esri’s Peter Becker explained how the Esri Landsat imagery service showed changes in Dubai, UAE, from the sleepy village in 1975, to the mega-modern metropolis of 2012. Vinay Viswambharan demonstrated ArcGIS imagery tools that analyze data at the neighborhood level.
If you weren’t able to make it to San Diego this year, don’t fret. There are several ways you can follow along with the latest Esri technology updates and developments that will be unveiled at UC.
Your questions, comments, and feedback are an integral part of our efforts at Esri and there is no better example than the annual pre-UC survey. Last month, we sent many of you a survey asking your general opinions about our technology and where you think we should focus our efforts. After several weeks of hard work, our answers to your questions are now available.
Get the most out of your UC experience by participating through social media. It’s the best way to get the latest news, find out what’s popular (and where the parties are), and share your own experiences with the community.
The 2012 UC is shaping up to be one of our most exciting and timely conferences in recent history. Between technology advancements from mobile to the cloud and the releases of ArcGIS 10.1 and the new version of ArcGIS Online, we’re hard at work preparing the GIS event of the year, if not the decade.
It wouldn’t be UC without a little fun. Stop by the Mobile and Runtime SDKs Island in the Esri Showcase to get hands-on time with mobile GIS applications and developer frameworks for a variety of platforms. Our experts will be available to answer any questions you have about deploying these technologies and provide best practices and other tips to help you get up to speed with building and managing lightweight GIS apps.
