It’s just over a couple of weeks until the 2019 User Conference and the ArcGIS Runtime team is looking forward to seeing you in San Diego.
As in previous years, we’ll have a strong developer presence with Technical Workshops, Demo Theaters, social events, and a dedicated developer island on the expo floor.
Each of the Runtime SDKs will have engineers on hand at the Developer Island. Located next to Demo Theaters 7 & 8 in the expo hall, we’ll be there during expo hours.
Bring your Runtime questions and show us what you’re building. We can discuss best practices, Runtime patterns, even take a look at your code if you like should you need a hand with SDK specifics.
This is your chance to talk one-on-one with the Runtime team, so let us know what you like about the Runtime, what we might do better, and what you’d like to see in future releases.
We also have a number of Technical Workshops and Demo Theaters that cover working with each of the Runtime SDKs, how to build offline apps, AR and VR capabilities, and what we have planned for the next few releases.
ArcGIS Runtime SDK for iOS: Building Apps (Demo Theater)
Wed, 8:30am-9:30am, repeated Thu, 10:00am-11:00am
ArcGIS Runtime SDKs: Building Cross-Platform Apps (Technical Workshop)
ArcGIS Runtime SDK for Qt: Building Apps (Demo Theater)
VR and AR in ArcGIS: An Introduction (Demo Theater)
ArcGIS Runtime SDKs: The Road Ahead (Technical Workshop)
ArcGIS Runtime SDK for Java: Building Apps (Demo Theater)
ArcGIS Runtime SDKS: Building Android Apps (Technical Workshop)
ArcGIS Runtime SDKs: Building .NET Apps (Technical Workshop)
ArcGIS Runtime SDKs: Building Offline Applications (Technical Workshop)
Many of the Technical Workshops are recorded, but be aware that the Road Ahead session is not, so make sure to turn up in person if you need to know what we’ve got planned.
Events & Special Interest Groups
Here are some other events that should be of interest to Runtime developers:
Lightning Talks – Mon, 5:00pm-6:30pm (Ballroom 20D)
Developer Social – Tue, 5:30pm-7:30pm (Marriott Pool)
Augmented Reality/Virtual Reality SIG – Tue, 11:30am-12:30pm (Room 28E)
What’s new in High Accuracy GPS for Esri Mobile Apps SIG – Thu, 11:30am-12:30pm (Room 9)
As a first this year, we’ll also have a Developer Clinic. Visit this page and scroll down to make an appointment (one per customer).
When would you sign up for the Developer Clinic vs swinging by the Developer Island?
- Come to the Developer Island if you need targeted advice about working with a specific SDK from the engineers that built it.
- Come to the Developer Clinic to discuss strategic approaches you might adopt. You’ll have a chance to consult with us on bigger picture stuff like broader platform concepts, which APIs and SDKs to use, your identity strategy, how to plan your architecture etc.
See you in San Diego
We’ve been adding great new functionality to the Runtime with each release and have many exciting new capabilities on the roadmap. We’re always interested to see what you’re building and learn what you need, so hope to see you there.
