FME UC 2017: Friday Recap

Turns out you guys can do a lot with FME in 3 hours — especially when fuelled by pizza and beer. My partner in crime @mapgirll tweeted all the Hackathon projects earlier and will post a recap here on the blog soon, so stay tuned for that.

Awards in FME Excellence

We awarded our partner of the year, con terra, and our top users in the FME Community. Thank you all for your amazing work and influence!

And then this happened.

Safe gave a lifetime achievement award to a data format that has made outstanding contributions to the industry for 25 years. Congratulations, Shapefile.

Apple Watch Innovations with Ulf Månsson (SWECO)

Turns out you can use the Apple Watch in conjunction with the FME Server Notification Service for all sorts of interesting location-based data. In Ulf’s demo, he took inventory of various locations of clues for our Virtual Reality Contest. He just found the clue, pushed a button on his Apple Watch, and the notification was picked up by FME Server and added to a map. Nice!

Sneak Peeks: FME 2018 and Beyond

We brought our developers on stage to demo what they’ve been working on. This was super cool — even many of us non-dev Safers were astounded to see what they’ve been doing.

First we got a peek at what’s coming soon in FME 2017.1 (stay tuned for a blog on that). Then we reached beyond this release to give you a sneak peek at what’s in beta for the future.

Check @fmeuc and the #fmeuc hashtag for the full stream of events this week, including social events, breakout sessions, and #FMESocksFriday.

Thank you all so much for joining us over this amazing week. If you weren’t able to make it out to this FME UC, we sincerely hope you can come to the next one. We promise tons of learning opportunities, networking, and an all-around good time.

I mean, I knew this week would be fun, but I had no idea just HOW fun. Stay in touch — and on behalf of the team, we look forward to seeing all of you again very soon.
