It’s Esri UC week. I’m doing a few presentations, if you’re interested I recommend you check them out. The UC is a great conference, a chance to learn all the new stuff in the ArcGIS platform and apps and tools that are available. There is a lot that happens at UC, from industry folks getting…


DevSummit Season 2017

It’s that time of year, it’s wet outside (in SoCal anyway), I’m blasting through material and slides and wondering what I’m doing. I tend to over-commit, and I like to think I over-deliver. I have to admit, I kind of thrive on it. Presenting and sharing material. I think I do a decent job of…

Esri European DevSummit 2016

It’s only the second day of the 2016 Esri European Developer Summit, but so far it’s been a terrific week! Living on the edge I just so happened to get my passport the morning of my flight, so to say I was cutting it close is an understatement. The flight here was long, yes, but…

I’m going to Berlin

My week at EsriUC 2016

I really enjoy doing these sessions, I’m pretty comfortable talking to crowds of people about tech and all things geo, so…

The ability to explore your data based on temporal information is incredibly useful and adds a new way for users to be able to create enticing maps and tell whole new stories. In…


DevSummit 2016: Recap

Ok, so I know I said I would do daily recaps of DevSummit last week, but my days ran longer than expected and I had less time for recaps than I thought. I already talked about plenary and the vector tiles sessions I did. So I’ll talk a little about my other sessions. Yann and…


DevSummit 2016 Day 1

Or is it Day 2? Tough to tell. I had crappy wifi last night, so this a late blog post. Yesterday I just practiced for plenary and spent some time at the showcase island in the afternoon. Not much to report. Today was the plenary, which I was more than proud and excited to be…
