Sometimes building cross-platform web apps for smartphones and tablets is a better option than native apps for those devices. If that’s your case, then Andy Gup will take you through samples that thoroughly cover designing and building your apps so that they can be “responsive” to the various screen size, aspect, orientation, and resolution options across those devices. You’ll walk away knowing how to make apps that look good and perform well in all of those environments. Use of 3rd party libraries such as Bootstrap and jQuery Mobile will be described and discussed.
Building Mapping Solutions with Esri Open Source Projects – 4:00-5:00pm
ArcGIS is strongly compatible with a wide variety of web development technologies and libraries out there. Andrew Turner will spin you up on how to create powerful apps more quickly and reliably than ever before using open source projects. He will cover technologies such as Esri-Leaflet, Terraformer, GeoServices-JS, Bootstrap-Map-JS, as well as cover how to use OAuth 2.0 in your apps to allow them to make them accessible to ArcGIS Online named users.
For more details on these and other sessions, please see the online agenda.
