In July several Esri employees and developers were at OSCON – short for Open Source Conference – in Portland, Oregon. It’s a great conference for anyone interested in open source technology, and we’ve been going since at least 2011.
So, what did Esri do at OSCON this year?
For the fourth year in a row, Esri had an exhibit booth at OSCON.
Manny Lopez drew people in by showing off some beautiful web maps made with Esri technology. There was a story map showing a map of 1836 New York City overlaid on modern satellite imagery, an interactive map of the 2035 Comprehensive Plan for Portland and the proposed changes, and a mesmerizing map of active forest fires and wind movement.
We attended some great sessions.
There were a lot of great sessions and tutorials that would be of interest to geospatial developers. Some of our favorites were the Git and GitHub Essentials, NASA Open Source Projects, Getting Started with Go, Angular.js Tutorial, and Get Started With the Arduino.
