A number of interesting events are approaching, so, I have a few developer tips to share...

An interesting effort and competition from the USGS as they issue a call to developers in a search for hackers, mashup artists, devs, geogeeks and others to help in App-lifying and Enhancing USGS Earth Science Data. The USGS is seeking help via this platform from many of the Nation’s premier application developers and data visualization specialists in developing new visualizations and applications for datasets. The vehicle to achieve this is Challenge.gov a competition administered via the GSA – see more details here and Good Luck!
Here in B.C. developers, industry, and government are invited to a special event focused on OpenData and OpenData policies – The OpenData Summit. The event takes place Feb 19 on the SFU Campus and the agenda will look at solutions for answering questions like What is it being used for? What value is being generated right now? What is next for open data in BC? As part of what’s touted as “OpenData Day“, the Vancouver Open Data Day Hackathon has been announced by the @CityofVancouver for Sat, 23 Feb 9 and word has it that the City of Victoria @CityOfVictoria will also be hosting a similar event. FYI, see also the  DataBC Geographic Services group on LinkedIn
FME users, take note and Save the date and join others at one of 40+ FME User Meetings around the world. In each city, you’ll have the opportunity to learn about the new release, discover best practices and new tips, and meet other FME users in your area.
Finally, for Esri developers, take not that Esri has opened up registration for the 2013 Esri DevSummit taking place later in March in beautiful Palm Springs – a great chance to get your GeoGeek on!
