So here we are, all worn out and our bellies full from drinking the Esri Kool-Aid after another awesome ESRIUC. So where to begin? Like many of you, I have pages and pages of notes, hundreds of photos, some videos, and loads of flyers and reading material to pour over. You may be wondering though, what’s everyone else saying and writing about ESRIUC 2015? Here’s some of my favorite resources where I’ve gleaned some really nice observations and take-aways from the event… enjoy! Oh, and if you blogged from the event or shared some observations, please do ping me on Twitter @gletham or drop me an email (see contact link above)

Paul Ramsay of CartoDB shares his views on esri and esriuc, this after a successful crashing of San Diego by CartoDB!
