Working together to build better software
The Early Adopter Community provides Esri users with managed access to Esri's developing products and emerging technologies. Interact with Esri development teams, get access to software, and have testing programs adjusted as products evolve. This is a year-round process, so new opportunities will always be available.
How does it work?
As new products, features, and technologies become ready for testing, use the Early Adopter Community as a platform to get access to testing environments and sign up for opportunities that interest you.
When is it available?
Early Adopter Community programs vary in frequency of availability and duration. Some programs are open continuously, while others may have very focused test periods. Once you've joined the community, you can view the current open opportunities.
Who is involved?
Product managers, product engineers, and developers may all be closely following and interacting with Early Adopter Program participants. Many programs include surveys and forums to share information. The Early Adopter Community overall is managed by a dedicated team to make sure each program is configured to best support the testing requirements.
What are the benefits?
As a member of the Early Adopter Community, you are eligible to be selected for upcoming prerelease software tests of Esri products that are currently in development.
