We are happily hosting an Esri Dev Meet Up in lovely Sunriver, OR along with the NWGIS conference ( on Wednesday, October 16th. We will be hosting the event in the Hearth Room. Food and beverages will be provided at the Dev Meet Up! (Come a lil' hungry, why don't ya?)

This event is a social gathering for developers to discuss the latest in GIS and geospatial technology, geo services, web and mobile mapping apps, app design, cloud solutions 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. (Duh, we're there.)

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