Esri Developer Summit 2015: Last Day

It’s been a full, yet quick week of geodev geekness here at the Esri Dev Summit. The night before, a buddy opened a tab at the bar, so suffice it to say, I missed the first morning sessions, but I was there in spirit. Enterprise, builds, and deployment I went to check out a session…

Esri Developer Summit 2015: Day 3

For those of us that braved the pre-noon hours, there were some good sessions this morning that I was able to attend. Dojo I sat in on Dojo – The Good Parts, which was an updated talk that was done last year. This was a good session for users just getting started with the ArcGIS…

Esri Developer Summit 2015: Day 2

It was day 2 of Esri Developer Summit 2015 and it was a blast. Keynote The keynote was by John Tomizuka of Taqtile which was really refreshing I think for this crowd. It was great to see someone who works in the trenches of developing applications and being able to see what problems they tackle…

Day in the life of a GIS Analyst (Developer)

An abbreviated version of a typical day involving the duties of a GIS Analyst and Developer. Or maybe it’s just me. Hour 1 Arrive to work before the sun does. Grab some coffee, catch up on email. Peruse the latest ArcUser and ArcNews and look at how easy it all should be. Hour 2 Crap,…


Knockout.js and why Flex devs should try it.

Being primarily a Flex developer at work, I take great pleasure in the opportunities I have at the workplace to use different technologies to get the job done. Recently, I developed a simple internal application that I could have done in Flex, but really, it was fairly straightforward and I wanted to brush up on…


O’Reilly Wish List (or, I like free books)

O’Reilly is running a contest to give away $500 of books. I don’t have $500 to spend on books, but I want books, so this is the best contest ever! If I win, I’ll take Print/E-books please, my Kindle needs some sweet sweet loving. Learning PHP, MySQL, and JavaScript This is a classic combination of…


FlexMapTools and git issues

So I had an oops moment when apparently I navigated to my local git directory using all lowercase letters and pushed my commits this evening. Although the folder structure in my local repo and the folder structure when I pulled my repo from github were identical, the github page had a FlexMapTools and a flexmaptools…
