GIS Managers' Open Summit - Esri UC 2011

Did you attend the Esri User Conference (UC) last year? Did you make it to the GIS Managers' Open Summit? It was an interesting day, and our first time having an unconference as part of the UC. Most of the folks there were not really familiar with the idea of an unconference or how it works, but they all survived and I think most got a lot out of it.

At the end of the day I asked Victoria if she thought we would do this again next year. She didn't know, but hoped we would. I had to agree.

Well, here we are a year later. And guess what? Not only are we doing the Open Summit again - but we are doing it over two days! Tuesday and Wednesday, with a few twists to the schedule, and a few little changes from last year.

More to come on that. Watch for Tweets on the subject - specifically follow @geoTC and @VKouyoumjian for updates on Open Summit. Also follow @EsriUC for all things UC.

So plan on coming by for a day, or a morning, or an afternoon. We would love to see you there. If you would like to add it to your "My UC" agenda - here's the link: http://events.esri.com/uc/2011/infoweb/onlineagenda/?fa=ofg_details_form&ScheduleID=2096 for Tuesday. Then at the bottom for that page is the link for Wednesday.

You can also follow along and keep the conversation going on the LinkedIn 'Managers in GIS' group.

Look forward to seeing you there, hearing about your work, and discussing all things GIS in an unconferency way.
