Esri and Open Source Software: More Please | ArcGIS Resource Center

Esri and Open Source Software: More Please | ArcGIS Resource Center | Geoprocessing | Scoop.it

A few weeks ago GeoIQ joined Esri and, augmented by a few other Esri employees, we formed the Esri R&D Center, Washington DC, a.k.a the DC Dev Center. We immediately launched into action and are having fun brainstorming with our colleagues about what sort of technology and tools to explore. Transitioning a whole company at once was a new experience, and we’ve outlined some of our initial plans. Part of our transition involves working closely with our Esri co-workers to square up some goals for the future in terms of what makes the most sense for Esri as a whole and for the geo-developer community in particular. The DC Dev Center crew is a somewhat outspoken bunch of developers who are passionate and devoted to their craft and from early on it became clear where our experiences and passions could make a quick and significant impact.

 

At GeoIQ, we were heavy users of open source software and contributed code back to the community when we could. However, we feel that we could have been better about contributing code back to the community and developing more in the open. This is one of the areas where we as developers, evangelists, and geospatial uber-geeks feel that we can make a strong impact — improving Esri’s participation in and contributions to open source. Esri has always hosted open code and samples in a variety of ways, but more can be done. Focus and motivation needs to be improved, and Esri is now making it a priority to improve its open source participation.

 

More of Esri’s code should and will be open sourced in the coming days, weeks, months, and years. Patience is needed, of course, but we’re on our way. Here’s the basic plan: make it easy for Esri employees to write and share code in an open space and identify what products can and should be open sourced. To start, this means giving developers access to the appropriate tools, resources and space they need to collaborate with each other. This really just means Esri is beginning to leverage Github.

 

We will centralize Esri’s open code as much as possible, but again this will take some time. We are encouraging the sharing of ideas, experiments, and new code all to be developed openly on Github. We want Esri developers to have faces, be active on Github, and work more closely with those outside the company. We will embrace open source development as much as we can. You’ll see more code from Esri on Github. You’ll see more collaboration with other software projects. You’ll see Esri forking code and issuing pull requests on your repos – we are excited to be launching these new activities.,,,,,,
