ArcGIS for Local Government Apps Available Now on GitHub

This month we launched a series of ArcGIS for Local Government GitHub repositories to share source code for our web, desktop, and mobile applications. For those that aren’t familiar with GitHub, it is a code sharing and social networking site for the developer community.

We’ve always provided source code with our ArcGIS for Local Government maps and apps but the new GitHub presence will make it easier for the developer community to access the code base and participate in the development of Esri’s local government apps. As a team, we’ll also be using the GitHub repositories to manage our development efforts and look forward to collaborating with developers inside Esri and across the local government community using the GitHub platform.

We’ve started with more than twelve applications and should have the rest of our applications available via GitHub by early 2013. Even though we have this new channel for our developers, we will continue shipping supported versions of the ArcGIS for Local Government maps and apps via ArcGIS.com.  We’ve got a lot planned for our next release, which is scheduled for March 2013 and to coincide with ArcGIS 10.1 SP2 (officially named 10.1.2).

Finally, we look forward to using GitHub as another way to collaborate on the development of great GIS applications for local governments across the globe.
