Guest Keynote: Leadership: Becoming a Difference Maker
Through the power of his own story and the inspiration he’s found in others, Rick Hansen encourages us all to recognize the Difference Makers in our lives and to see ourselves as Difference Makers.
Difference Makers are leaders by example, catalysts – those whose passion and courage ignite talent and action in others. Their energy empowers them to believe in their own potential and find solutions to barriers.
Who amongst your family, friends, colleagues, and neighbors create an impact? What can you do to make others around you better?
Hansen shares his vision and inspires audiences to join his journey to create an accessible, healthy, and inclusive world where people of all abilities can fully participate and contribute.

Wood vs. Wings
Trees and Airplanes don't play nicely together. Many airports face the constant struggle of ensuring that obstacles, like trees, do not threaten the safe operation of arriving and departing aircraft. How does YYJ, located on the west coast of Canada, in area known for its especially large trees, deal with this issue? LiDAR is often used to capture the height of obstacles around the airport, but what do you do with all that data?
This presentation will show how FME is used by YYJ to manipulate the LiDAR data, develop cost estimates for removal and develop layers for an ArcGIS Online management tool.

Deployment on FME Server through DTAP Street
Evolving from FME Desktop-based processes to FME Server integrations is often a growing pain. Organizations sometimes struggle with the promotion management of FME workflows through the DTAP street. During the presentation, we will explain some solutions to avoid having hard-coded server names, passwords or API endpoints in the Workspace itself.
We will focus on: developing the process in FME Desktop, the configuration of the different environments of FME Server, the usage of Web and Database Connections, the use of Projects and validation of these Projects and the Workspaces. The goal is that nothing needs to change in the Workspace and that even a Deployment Manager knowing very little about FME can release an FME Server process into production. The ultimate goal would be to fully automate the deployment using the FME Server API.
