ESRI Developer Summit 2009

This year ESRI Developer Summit will be held from 23rd -26th March in Palm Springs. If you are new to ESRI developers community here is what this is all about.

The Developer Summit is dedicated to GIS, mapping, and spatial developers. This event exists to give you access to the help you need and the ideas you crave, from detailed technical presentations led by ESRI's development team to one-on-one meetings with ESRI staff representing all areas of the ArcGIS platform. Join your fellow developers and learn how to build and deploy better solutions in your job.

As with all ESRI conferences I have attended in past this will be a great opportunity to get face to face with ESRI developers and other fellow developers from all over the world.

Site does not have too many details about technical sessions but you will be exposed to ArcGIS 9.3.1. features and see a glimpse at 9.4 as presented by it's developers.

Keynote speaker at the Summit will be David Chappell from Chappel & Associates. Here is a brief about David.

Chappell has given the keynote address at events worldwide including the Software Development West Conference and several Microsoft-oriented events including Tech-Ed. His seminars have been attended by thousands of developers, architects, and decision makers. Chappell’s books grace the shelves of developers across the globe and have been used in courses at MIT, ETH Zurich, and other institutions—he’s also series editor for Addison-Wesley’s award-winning Independent Technology Guides and a regular columnist for several publications.

In his consulting practice, Chappell has helped clients including Hewlett-Packard, IBM, Microsoft, Stanford University, and Target Corporation adopt new technologies, market new products, train their sales staff, and create business plans. His comments have appeared in The New York Times, CNN.com, and many other publications.

No doubt this will be another great event!
