Redlands, California—Today, Esri announced it will be a sponsor and exhibitor at the TechCrunch Disrupt NY 2016 and Hackathon conference to be held in Brooklyn, New York, May 7 to 11, 2016. Esri staff will be on hand to provide information on the free, global Esri Startup Program, which helps qualifying developers, emerging businesses, and tech entrepreneurs build mapping and location analytics capabilities into their products.
Developers attending the conference will explore the ways that using geographic information system (GIS) technology can provide a competitive advantage. Those joining the weekend hackathon can take advantage of free Esri ArcGIS developer accounts to create apps that are deployable on any device, using the latest spatial software for geofencing, directions and routing, spatial analysis, geocoding, imagery and visualization, and more.
"Esri is pleased to partner with TechCrunch and provide game-changing mapping and spatial analytics to fast-evolving technology," said Kurt Daradics, Esri Startup Program manager. "Partnering with TechCrunch has been a great way for us to help the developer community."
