The 2018 Esri Developer Summit (DevSummit), March 6–9 in Palm Springs, California, is an opportunity for developers who use Esri technology to meet face-to-face with the developers who make Esri technology.

During three days of demonstrations, discussions, and dodgeball, you can learn about the latest software development tools and where the technology is going in the coming year while having fun and networking with peers. Learn tips, share your experiences, and socialize at this event designed exclusively for developers who use GIS technology. Take home best practices for web application security, performance, scalability, map services, caching, feature services, and editing.

Because DevSummit is by developers, for developers, user presentations are chosen by you and your fellow devs. Lightning Talks are an opportunity to share experiences with a tough problem or a masterful solution in just five minutes. Exchange ideas and maybe meet your next collaborator during SpeedGeeking.

DevSummit is not only a chance to work hard but also a chance to play hard. Play in the epic annual dodgeball tournament. During Tuesday and Wednesday evenings, join fellow devs exploring Palm Springs using the free shuttle bus to get around town. Hang with old friends and meet new ones at the social events.

Registration includes all scheduled developer sessions, continental breakfasts, beverage breaks, daily lunches, access to the Esri Showcase, the Monday GIS Solutions Expo Social, and the Thursday Developer Summit Party. Register today at
