Welcome to the Esri PDX (http://pdx.esri.com/) Open House event!
As a world leader in mapping and GIS technology, Esri (http://www.esri.com/) inspires and enables people to positively impact the future through a deeper, geographic understanding of the changing world around them. Since 1969, Esri continues to innovate in order to create the technology that helps us understand our world.
With innovation central to what we do, we invest heavier than most tech companies in research and development (R&D) centers around the world. One of our most innovative and productive R&D centers is right here in Portland (http://pdx.esri.com/).
To meet you and show you a bit of what we're up to, we would like to invite you to our Open House.
Between the hours of 1pm - 7pm, we would like to share with you demos of our ArcGIS Platform, which includes ArcGIS Online (http://www.arcgis.com/), geoservices, mapping content, and ArcGIS Open Data (http://opendata.arcgis.com/). If you're a developer (http://developers.arcgis.com/), we can demo for you our APIs, templates, and app builders (http://developers.arcgis.com/).
Or if you want, just meet and chat with our developers and engineers. Engage with our staff to learn about our roles, involvement, and skills that help to build our platform.
Light snacks and refreshments will be served from 1:00pm - 5:00pm. Pizza and beverages (soft drinks, beer, and wine) will be served from 5:00pm - 7:00pm.
