    All Pre-Conference Training Options
    Pre-Conference Training Course: Creating Effective Web Applications
    using ArcGIS Server

    Learn the basic design principles for creating Web mapping applications
    that are attractive, fast, and easy to use.  In course exercises, you
    will work with the lightweight ArcGIS Web Mapping APIs (using your
    choice of ArcGIS API: Flex, JavaScript, or Microsoft Silverlight/WPF) to
    create a focused application that utilizes internal and external ArcGIS
    Server Web services.  This class is intended for GIS analysts and others
    who want to create Web mapping applications to extend the use of GIS
    data to non-GIS departments within an organization or to the general
    public via the Internet.  No Web development experience is required.
    Esri instructor.  Esri Certificates of Completion given at the end of
    the class.

    management, analysis, and dissemination of information. Learn how to:
    *         Manage imagery more efficiently in desktop and server
    *         Leverage online content available through
    *         Perform improved spatial analysis using new time-aware tools,
    3D editing, and Python scripting
    *         Extend GIS into the field with new resources for deploying
    mobile applications
    *         Simplify custom application developments using improved web
    APIs, add-ins, and streamlined ArcObjects software development kits.
    Migrating to ArcGIS 10   Thursday, September 16   8:30 a.m. - 10:00 a.m.
    Marty Balikov, Esri
    This session will delve into strategies for migrating to ArcGIS 10.
    Topics include licensing concepts, best practices for migration,
    geodatabase migration techniques, and Esri resources and services that
    can assist you with your migration.
    What Does Gov 2.0 Mean To You?   Thursday, September 16   8:30 a.m. -
    10:00 a.m.
    Chuck Cmeyla and TJ Abbenhaus, Esri
    In nearly every state and local government jurisdiction, staff is
    talking about Gov 2.0.  But, what is Gov 2.0 and are we ready to embrace
    it?  This session will be delivered in two parts. The first part of the
    session will define Gov 2.0 in simple terms and explain the key
    components of it - transparency, collaboration, social media, cloud
    computing and applications.  The second part will be a live "tour" of
    the new Esri Local Government Resource Center.  There are many free
    tools available at the Resource Center that complement Gov 2.0.  The key
    features will be shown - data models, templates, maps, and applications.
    Introduction to Python Scripting for Map Automation in ArcGIS 10
    Thursday, September 16   8:30 a.m. - 10:00 a.m.
    Jeff Barrette, Esri
    ArcGIS 10 introduces the ability to automate mapping tasks through a new
    Python mapping module. This session will provide an overview of the
    arcpy.mapping module and will demonstrate how it can be used to process
    map documents, layers, data frames, and layouts in batch. This session
    is for GIS professionals that are looking for an easier way to develop
    automated tasks without necessarily having to learn the complexities of
    ArcObjects and sophisticated development environments as well as those
    that are interested in understanding how Python development fits within
    the overall ArcGIS scripting/customization framework. Attendees will
    also be introduced to the best resources and fastest ways to start
    writing their own mapping scripts in ArcGIS 10. This 90 minute
    introduction serves as a prerequisite for those interested in the
    hands-on workshops taking place during the conference.
    Hands-on Workshop: Python Scripting for Map Automation in ArcGIS 10
    Thursday, September 16   3 SESSIONS TO CHOOSE FROM: 10:30 a.m. - Noon;
    1:30 p.m. - 3:00 p.m.; 3:30 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.
    Jeff Barrette, Esri
    This hands-on workshop is for GIS professionals that are responsible for
    managing map documents, layer files, and automating maps within their
    organization. This is a great opportunity for those that want to test
    drive Esri's scripting environment for map automation and get a good
    sense for how it works and what it can accomplish. You will have the
    opportunity to try the new arcpy.mapping module by following along
    during demonstrations and then try your hand at some challenging tasks
    to solve on your own (or get help with). This will also be a great
    opportunity to learn the finer details of what can be accomplished using
    the mapping scripting environment.
    Special notes:
    Three hands-on workshops are offered. Each workshop accommodates 20
    people. Please visit the Esri booth to reserve a seat. 
    Prerequisites: Introduction to Python Scripting for Map Automation in
    ArcGIS 10 (Thursday, September 16   8:30 - 10:00 a.m.), and some
    familiarity with general scripting and/or Python scripting.
