(Postponed) Esri Geo Hackathon!
through TBD - Portland

UPDATE: Due to several people on our team being out of town, we've had to postpone this event until later this year. We'll be sure to add it to calagator when we pick a new date!

We're throwing a big hackathon to showcase a bunch of new Esri tools! Come be some of the first to check out new and improved documentation, user interface and new SDKs and APIs for Esri's core technology.

New to Esri? Basically, you can do anything add any kind of geo-functionality any product or app you're working on. From maps and data, geocoding and routing, demographic data and more, you'll be able to check out and test work from Esri R&D Center Portland and Esri HQ in Redlands!

There will be plenty of free food and drink, and networking kickoff the night before. Teams will have Friday night until 6pm Sunday to build apps using Esri technology. We'll have sample code on Github and a ton of example projects. There will also be plenty of Esri devs on site to help out.

Who should attend?

Feel free to participate if you're a designer or developer, college student, professional, high school student or someone just interested in geo. Keep in mind that this is a developer hackathon, so you should arrive with at least some knowledge of HTML/CSS so that you can contribute to a team. If you don't know HTML/CSS but are a skilled graphic designer, we need you too! Think of it as a playground for trying new things out.

What kind of prizes will there be?

Prizes will be announced soon, but suffice it to say they will likely be interesting objects that fly through the air. Also, free conference tickets and Esri software credits for runner ups.

MaptimePDX: Mapping with Tableau - CoMeetup with the Portland Tableau User Group
WeWork Custom House

We will be joining forces with the Tableau User Meetup group this month to talk about mapping in Tableau!

Tableau is business intelligence software that allows anyone to easily connect to data, then visualize and create interactive, sharable dashboards. It's easy enough that any Excel user can learn it, but powerful enough to satisfy even the most complex analytical problems. Securely sharing your findings with others only takes seconds.


Our presenters:

Brittany Brannon of Slalom Consulting and PK Kase of Oregon Department of Transportation. Brit and PK will lead us in a hands-on knowledge-share of their work with Tableau mapping.

What to bring:

  1. Laptop

  2. Free version of Tableau Public

  3. Free Mapbox Account


6:00 – Gather and settle in

6:10 – A few words from our groups and sponsor

6:20 – Mapping with Tableau – hands-on so bring your laptop

Tableau mapping 101

Introduction to using Mapbox with Tableau

Brief overview of using ArcGIS and Tableau

Tableau map examples

7:20 – Tableau Doctor

Great opportunity to ask any questions about mapping with Tableau!

7:40 – The best part – meet other Tableau users and map makers!

Stick around to continue the conversations started by our presentations.

We'll be heading to Pints Brewing (412 NW 5th Ave, Portland, OR 97209) afterwards for anyone that is interested.

Lots to cover so RSVP and get there early!
