A dual luxury event spectacular!

TNRIS invites you to Austin on Thursday, May 16, 2019 for the 7th annual GeoRodeo and Friday, May 17, 2019 for JS.GEO.

The GeoRodeo is a roundup of geodevelopers, coders, and professionals from across the state of Texas who are looking to incorporate new ideas and creative solutions into their work. This free, interactive, technical conference is geared toward the Texas GIS/geospatial developer community.

Join us to learn about tips and techniques for open data, open source, commercial GIS applications, and more!

New Location!

We want to hear from you!

Our community has a wide array of developer knowledge and the GeoRodeo is intended to foster involvement from Code Wranglers of all experience levels. Whether you have written a Python script to automate a daily task, used Javascript to create a single page web application, put a Geoserver instance on a Raspberry Pi, or managed the deployment of a containerized multi-app infrastructure, please come share!

Presentations will be categorized to help ensure the GeoRodeo has something for everyone. We consider all presentation subjects and do not limit only to the listed categories. This year's categories include:

  • My First App
  • 100 Lines of Code or Less
  • Internet of Things (Raspberry Pi, Smart Home App, etc.)
  • GeoProcessing Tool, Extension, or Add-On (ArcGIS, GDAL, QGIS)

I am new to programming. Will I benefit from this?

Yes, this event is designed to help you make connections and provide some guidance for accomplishing your geospatial goals. There will be an emphasis on coding and breaking down the process for modern geospatial solutions.

Should I bring my own Laptop?

Yes, we encourage you to bring your own laptop loaded with whatever tools and code that you may want or need. There will be wireless internet connections available. Note: Make sure you have a fully charged battery to avoid power outlet ‘range wars’!
