MAX Session Highlight: Mansour Raad On ESRI GIS And Flex

Here’s a MAX 2007 session that is sure to be as entertaining as it is informative …
ESRI designs and develops the world’s leading geographic information system (GIS) technology, and ESRI products have long integrated (in a variety of ways) with ColdFusion, and more recently Flex (via a collection of MXML components). One really slick example of this integration is ArcWeb Explorer.
Mansour Raad is a Senior Architect at ESRI. He is also a big Flex fan, and one of the most engaging and passionate presenters I have ever met. He loves demonstrating cool GIS apps, and has tremendous fun building apps quickly and painlessly. He’s also presenting a session entitled Case Study: ESRI Geospatial Application Using Adobe Flex at MAX. His session runs twice, Monday, October 1, 4:30pm-5:30pm and
Tuesday, October 2, 9:15-10:15am. And knowing Mansour, I predict that this will be one of the most enjoyable sessions at MAX.

    I have seen Mansour speak at the big ESRI User Conference a few years ago. I agree, it should be a good session. Maybe Mansour can speak about any future Coldfusion / ArcGIS Server integration? Arcweb services and ArcIMS is only going to get you so far these days…

    Thanks Ben for the kind words. I’m no CF expert, but have shared with Ben the Java ADF to enable the integration of CF with ArcGIS. You see CF samples using ArcWebServices at Have fun, and hope to see you at MAX.
