UC2006 Over : A Successful Conference for ArcPad Users and the Team

UC2006 is over and as always it was an exhausting (but satisfying) experience no matter what your involvement is.
This year's conference was great for ArcPad. We had many hundreds of people attend the various ArcPad technical workshops, user presented papers sessions and visiting us at the Mobile GIS island.

For the team, we greatly enjoyed spending time with users, presenting our workshop sessions and of course getting your feedback and experience. Unfortunately no matter how long the conference was, there isn't ever enough time to get to talk to you all. We're left with the impression that users love ArcPad 7.0, they are anxious to get their hands on the forthcoming 7.0.1 release and that we're focusing on the right features for 7.1. Over the coming weeks we will be *mashing* all the feedback and comments we got and tuning our development efforts.

We will also be publishing more information on this blog of the sorts of things we heard you wanted to see and hear about.

In our technical sessions we presented various application demonstrations, including an applet that can calculate a route using almost any polyline shapefile and various more advanced examples enabling your applications to access device capabilities such as email, text messages (SMS) and contact lists. These samples will be made available soon. We'll make the announcements via this blog as soon as they are ready for download.

Thank you to all that attended the conference, came to our sessions and visited the island.
