The Esri Developer Summit (DevSummit) is a conference for developers who want to learn more about the tools and technologies for creating mapping applications or adding maps to their existing apps.

The DevSummit includes the following:

  • Detailed technical sessions covering various aspects of the ArcGIS platform and ways to build with it
  • User presentations and Lightning Talks from some of your most innovative fellow developers
  • Demonstrations of the latest Esri releases, many of which will be shown off for the first time at the DevSummit.
  • Many opportunities to meet and network with fellow developers and Esri staff
  • Ample time to get your questions answered

The DevSummit will help you:

  • Learn best practices for all aspects of ArcGIS, from both your peers and Esri developers
  • Understand and become more effective with coding web and mobile applications built on JavaScript, Python, Silverlight, Flex, iOS, Android, and more
  • Get your specific questions answered by Esri developers
  • Stay up-to-date with current technology
  • Find out about the road ahead for ArcGIS so you can start planning

Top Reasons to Attend

Whether you’re an app developer who’s interested in maps, a GIS professional who’s learning how to code, or a seasoned geospatial software developer, here’s a quick look at the top reasons you will want to attend.

50+ Technical Workshops

The skill level of these sessions ranges from beginner to advanced. There will be multiple sessions covering all kinds of mapping applications built with Python, JavaScript, .NET and OS X as well as native devices using as iOS and Android.

Also sessions on 3D mapping, geodatabase management, open data portals, offline apps, and open source projects, just to name a few.

Get a First Look at the Newest Mapping Technology

Many new ArcGIS developer tools will be announced and launched in Berlin. The developers will share some of the latest capabilities available in the ArcGIS platform and put the tools into your hands. These will help jump-start you to building exciting geo applications.

Meet the Team and Get Your Questions Answered

When you’re not attending workshops, you can meet and have one-on-one conversations with developers from Esri. These are the same developers who build ArcGIS and build applications on the ArcGIS platform.

Start off With Hands-on Training

Join right before the Developer Summit for hands-on training courses.

Present and Learn From Your Peers

Submit a tech presentation and you can get into the agenda, or submit a 5-minute Lightning Talk where you can share a quick topic with everyone.

Even if you don’t present, you can learn a lot from those who have been building mapping apps with lots of different technologies.

Professional Networking

For the past few years, DevSummit has been the premier event for geospatial developers in Europe and North America. Here you will meet and learn from many of the most accomplished innovators in the field, share your accomplishments and ideas with others, and build professional connections that will enhance your career for a lifetime.

The “Plenary Day” Pass

Can you only attend for one day? If so, you may like the 100€ Plenary Day pass, where you can attend all of the activities on Day 2 of the conference.

The Plenary session will show you the latest across the ArcGIS platform for developers, then take the rest of the day to attend some tech workshops, attend our Speedgeeking event, and network with others during our Welcome Social that evening.

Call for Papers

Share your tips and triumphs by submitting an abstract for a presentation at the Developer Summit in Berlin. It’s a great way to empower your peers and justify your attendance.

Presentations are typically 30 minutes or less. This year’s committee will evaluate all abstracts and make selections based on topic, content, and time available. All authors will be notified after the selection process. A detailed program of presentations and events will be provided prior to the conference. A projector and screen will be provided in the presentation room.

Deadline to submit papers is September 19, 2016.
