From the 2012 Dev Summit – Wednesday


The cloud is the future of information technology.

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

From the 2012 Dev Summit – Tuesday

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.

Web and server GIS at the 2012 Esri Developer Summit

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!
