The Dev Summit has started here in Palm Springs, last night Developers spent time in the ESRI Showcase and GIS Expo. Today things really got going with Plenary Session. Jim McKinney (ArcGIS Project Manager) got things stared by talking about the ESRI Software and Products teams at ESRI. Jack Dangermond (ESRI President) then introduced Scott Morehouse (Director of Software Development) to the stage to share his vision of GIS and development projects his teams are working on.
Following Scott's speak, Euan Cameron (Senior Architect) lead a series of presentation and demos on extending ArcGIS Desktop and creating custom solutions with ArcGIS Engine. Demos had lots of code in both .NET and Java.
More to come on ArcGIS Server and Mobile after the break.
Note: The plenary session today is for both Dev Summit attendees and ESRI Business Partners and International Distributors. I'm guessing there are about 2000 in the room.
