Esri Dev Meet Up - Helping to Keep Portland on the Edge

In coordination with the Oregon and Southwest Washington URISA GIS in Action conference, we will be hosting an Esri Dev Meet Up on Wednesday, May 1st. Food and beverages will be provided at the meet up.

The Esri Dev Meet Up is a social gathering for developers to discuss geospatial technologies, complementary third-party tools, and development platforms (e.g., Silverlight, Java, Flex, JavaScript) that are supported by Esri. Presentations run the gamut of our community: from Web development to mobile location development for iOS, Android and Windows Phone 7 to automating tasks with Python.

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

At these meet ups, you can:

Demonstrate your application or framework.
Present an interesting concept or idea.
Share your experiences.
Connect with other developers.

      I'm thrilled that ESRI is nurturing an open source community and am thinking about how I might contribute examples of the sort of modular development I focused on in my talk, or some other interesting tools, patterns, etc.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
