DevSummit has some great technical sessions and there are a number of learning opportunities planned for just about any Geo topic you can think of! We’ve looked through the online agenda and identified 10 sessions of interest – no easy task getting it down to ten, as there so many great things to see at DevSummit!
Lightning Talks – Mon. 3-4 PM Mesquite B
Kicking things off on Monday afternoon, lightning talks are always a big hit, and I guarantee you’ll learn a few tricks as well!

DevSummit Plenary – Tues. 8:30 – 12 Oasis 3-4
This one goes without saying. The plenary is always fun, interesting, and packed full of cool technology. There may even be a coupe of surprise announcements! Hear from Jack Dangermond and his product development leads as they share what’s new and what’s on the horizon. No doubt, there’s gonna be lots of live tweeting during this (see #devsummit). If you can’t make it, don’t worry, as the session will be streamed live!
ArcGIS Pro – The Road Ahead – Thurs. 4-5 Primrose B
There’s no question that ArcGIS Pro is THE future. In this “Road Ahead” session you’ll hear from the ArcGIS Pro team about what’s new and what’s planned. Are you migrating to Pro? If so you need to be in this one! A DevSummit tip – search the agenda for anything with “Road Ahead” in the title!
What’s new in Collector for ArcGIS – Wed. 1-2 San Jacinto
Collector for ArcGIS is the mobile collection solution of choice for ArcGIS users. Using Collector, workers collect and update information in the field from a connected or disconnected environment. With the release of Collector v18.1.0 in December, the app was rebuilt from the ground up and provides an entirely new user experience. Learn about the new experience in this session.
Deploying AppStudio Apps in the Enterprise – Wed. 3-3:30 demo theater
Turn your maps into apps! Yes indeed, AppStudio for ArcGIS is Esri’s solution that enables users of all levels to easily create, build, and deploy native apps. Make sure you attend this session and ask lots of questions before returning back to the office to build some great apps!
Add Visually Engaging and Interactive Infographics to Your Apps – Tues. 4-5 Mesquite G-H

ArcGIS Online: Preparing your Apps for High Demand – Tues. 1:30-2 Demo Theater
You’ve gone to great lengths planning, building, and testing your web maps. Now it’s time to make them available within your organization or to the public. However, are you sure that everything is configured correctly and the maps and data are optimized for high demand? Note, this session will place special attention on using Living Atlas content.
ArcGIS Online: Managing Data – Tues. 2:30-3:30 Primrose A
ArcGIS Online is all about your data and maps living in the cloud. In this session, you’ll learn how to store, manage, update, and organize all your data in the cloud. We’re pretty sure that attendees here would also be really excited to learn more about Admin Tools for ArcGIS!
Python Across the ArcGIS Platform – Wed. 1-2 Primrose A
Esri describes ArcPy and the ArcGIS API for Python as “two premier libraries that allow you to script, automate, and accomplish a number of your important workflows“. There’s no question that Python is a HOT, in-demand skill for developers. Show up early for this one because the room will likely be packed! To learn more about the ArcGIS API for Python here.
These are just ten sessions to consider as you plan your week at DevSummit. Go ahead and build your agenda here.
At last year’s DevSummit, we had several team members in Palm Springs. They got together on the last day and took a walk through the hall as they shared their summary remarks. What do you think the HOT topic will be from the 2019 DevSummit? If you have something cool to share about EPC/DevSummit or want to meet up with us, feel free to reach out to us via Twitter @geojobegis.
