Esri DevSummit is just around the corner and that means that tons of news and updates will be rolling out of Redlands. This means that its also a great time to poke around the ArcGIS Online resource Center, EDN, and the other community resources from Esri. A number of product updates and announcements have been rolling out from the project managers so I encourage you to spend some time looking around. FYI, those of you not headed to the Springs for DevSummit (no I won’t be there either) you’ll find comfort in knowing that word has it that videos will be released relatively fast from the event so you should have loads of goodies to view next week – be sure to also follow #Devsummit on Twitter!
For something new, check out the new ArcGIS for Developers resource from Esri. The portal promotes open source apps via the github, tools, tips, a blog, and more. See http://developers.arcgis.com/en/
Of note, ArcGIS for Flex 3.2 has just been released and some noteworthy updates include new features, enhancements, bug fixes, and more integration with GitHub.
