DevSummit Tech Sessions and Other Activities - Tips

The 11th Annual Esri Developer Summit (#DevSummit) is next week and we hope to see you all there!

Here are some tips for getting yourself ready:

1) Agenda Handout

In your registration bag will be a small printed agenda handout that you can use to help organize your week. If you’d like to get a head-start, here is a link to the PDF that you can download, print, and start circling.

2) Activities other than tech sessions

DevSummit is more than tech sessions. There are hands-on training workshops, Lightning Talks, Speedgeeking, Meet the Teams, the Vendor EXPO Social, and a lot more, including the Thursday night party featuring the world famous Dodgeball Tournament. Here is an “At a Glance” high level agenda for keeping all those big activities straight.

3) …but as for tech sessions

We’re presenting well over 250 tech sessions this year, and all of them will be recorded, since it’s often tough to get to see everything you want to see. You can watch later what you might have missed. Below is a list of tech session videos that will be provided for free on the E380 Esri Video website. It will take a few weeks to post-process and publish those, so you can probably expect them to be on that site by about mid-April 2016. The entire bundle of 250+ tech session videos are now available for sale, through the DevSummit website.
