Highlights From Esri DevSummit 2018

The Blue Raster team had a great week at the Esri Partner Conference (EPC) and Developers Summit in Palm Springs, California. The DevSummit is always one of our favorite times of the year. We get to connect with other developers and like minds to talk about the latest technologies and enhancements available in the ArcGIS platform.


At the EPC Plenary on Monday, Jack Dangermond presented Blue Raster with the Engaging Communities award. We also got to see our hard work on two ArcGIS Hub applications up on the big stage!

On Wednesday, two of our team members, Lucas Cotner and Adnan Bilwani, joined forces to present on "Geek Perspectives: Lessons from Hybrid Mobile GIS." And throughout the conference, the team enjoyed attending technical sessions from Esri software experts and fellow developers from the user community. Here are a few of the technologies our team is excited about:

  • Typescript with ArcGIS API-  not only does this make it easier for multiple people to work on code, but it also makes it easier to refactor, easier to test, and can help prevent technical debt
  • 3D- we saw some inspiring sessions all about the various techniques available for styling 3D scenes, and buildings and integrated mesh scene layers now load up to 50 percent faster!
  • JavaScript - it was great to see and hear about the latest tips and tricks for utilizing the ArcGIS API for JavaScript

Our team wrapped up the week in Palm Springs with the Esri party and Dodgeball tournament. Catch more of our favorite moments from the week below! See you next year at DevSummit 2019!
