Remember the “good ol” days of PC Arc/Info, ArcView 3.0? Like many others at the ESRI UC I was captivated by a very cool series of posters that displayed the history of ArcGIS and of ESRI… 25 years in the making. I put together a recap of some of the highlights and milestones of the company in this ESRI Timeline – 25 years and growing strong. Check out the product development timeline as well as a brief summary of some of the features that you’ll find in ArcGIS at release 9.3 – recall 9.3 will be released as a series of incremental patches later this year with a major release planned sometime in 2008 – likely early in the year. See the ESRI timeline at http://www.gisuser.com/content/view/11991/53/ – PS: have you been to the MappingCenter yet??

Ben Wang, Head of developer programs at Forum Nokia gave me a quick intro to their latest offering yesterday – Launchpad. The program is designed exactly as it sounds, to help developers get up and running and launch their apps on a platform support by Nokia devices. Offered via the developer portal at Forum.Nokia, Launchpad is a new, affordable alternative for those who were restricted in some way from taking part in the Forum Nokia Pro developer program – recall FN Pro was quite costly and restricted to special invite only companies that have a relationship with Nokia. Launchpad is open to all and is affordable – about 800 Euros p/year (priced in Euro the program is accessible Globally). Member developers and companies will have early access to tools and SDKs, access to affordable devices for testing, etc… see more about the program at http://www.lbszone.com/content/view/2016/2/ or jump directly to www.forum.nokia.com/launchpad
