Dave Bouwman on the ESRI Speaker Series Podcast

Looks like ESRI interviewed Dave Bouwman at the 2007 Developer Summit and has posted a Podcast of the discussion.

Listen to Bouwman discuss developing custom GIS solutions for forestry and describe some of the large projects he has worked on.

I’ll probably listen this weekend while I’m painting at the new house (no jokes about paint drying and listen to podcasts please).

Direct Link to MP3

On a side note, someone needs to fix the ESRI podcast directory. The current system is broken with so many podcasts and links buried behind weird javascript links. One should be able to link to the Dave Bouwman podcast permalink at ESRI.com rather than a direct link to the mp3. Where is the search, tags and comments?

Typical, typical site from ESRI. 😦

**Update – **OK, I had to break down and listen. If you want to know more about what Dave is up to and hear him say SOC many times, you’ll want to jump in and listen.

Talking About REST

There have been quite a bit of posting about REST in Planet Geospatial over the past couple weeks. Steve looks back on a post from a couple of years ago that suddenly became very relevant.

I am glad ESRI is thinking about putting a REST API in front of server but it is also not that hard to build one yourself.
