GeoDev Meetup - Billings, MT

We will be hosting an Esri GeoDev Meetup on Monday, April 7th in coordination with MAGIP's Intermountain Conference taking place April 7th - 11th. Food and beverages will be provided at the meet up.

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. 

At these meet ups, you can: 

Meet cool people. 
Show us what you got by demo'ing your application or framework.

    The talks were great to hear! I was inspired by Erin's presentation to remind myself to look away from my monitor and stretch every 20 minutes, so I created a python script to help me do that. You can find it here:

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.
