Esri Dev Meet Up - Pumping it up in Portland

In coordination with the Northwest GIS Users' Group and GIS-Pro: URISA's Annual Conference for GIS Professionals, we will be hosting an Esri Dev Meet Up on Tuesday, October 2nd. 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.

    Announcing our keynote speaker: Clint and Ben will be discussing Metro's context tool and adaptable framework for analysis and visualization of geographic areas. "The tool can be used to help planners, community groups and businesses provide a sense of scale for identifying high-performing or underserved urban areas compared to a goal or desired outcome."

    Hi Heather! We're actually working in coordination with the URISA conference, and it does not interfere with any of the events taking place on Tuesday, October 2nd. We're good to go! Thanks for lookin' out!

    That is during the URISA PRO conference, so unless you are going to hold it at the conference afterwards, it might be hard to go to.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
