Esri GeoDev Meetup at UC

Awww yeah! Let's do this!

Third annual Esri GeoDev Meet Up is happening at our User Conference in San Diego (woot!), taking place Wednesday, July 16th. You do not have to be registered for the Esri UC in order to attend! Food and beverages will be provided at the GeoDev Meet Up! (Come a lil' hungry, why don't ya?)

This event is a social gathering for developers to discuss the latest in mapping, geo technology, geo services, web and mobile mapping apps, app design, cloud solutions, map data or anything else related to solving real-world "geo" problems.

Developers of all levels of expertise are welcome, from seasoned GIS professionals to those new to geospatial development.

• Meet cool people. Duh, we're there.

• Show us what you got by demo'ing your application or framework.

• Make a name for yourself in presenting an cool new/interesting concept or idea.

• Impress someone by sharing your experiences.

• If you're sharp with your GIS and developer trivia, you can win some cool Esri swag
