The one where I drive back to San Diego from Palm Springs and talk about a few days at DevSummit with the GeoGeeks! In this solo edition I rolled a solo Devsummit summary while driving back from Palm Springs… What did you like most about DevSummit?
Note, while at DevSummit I filmed a number of in the car GeoGeeksinCars interviews which will be rolled out over the coming days and weeks (like this first video interview with Bern Szukalski of Esri) . You can view all the GeoGeeksinCars videos on this YouTube Channel or HERE on GISuser
A number of interesting tidbits were shared by Jack Dangermond and key members of his dev team during the opening plenary. A few items of interest I picked up include:
- Of the attendees present, 24% first timers, 19% from outside of US, and some 400 Esri staffers here to answer questions
- This year is the 11 th DevSummit and the largest ever
- ArcGIS has been designed to be an open design, extendible and interoperable, made available to developers to extend and leverage your data and web services

- New features in ArcGIS pro include: Create vector tiles, smart mapping, shared editing, animations, and more new functionality
- New update in ArcGIS Server March update… Smart mapping updates, vector tiles, 3 d apps, more analysis
