Two new instructor-led courses are now available for those who want to build custom Web apps that include GIS services and deliver a rich, interactive user experience. One course focuses on the ArcGIS API for Flex, while the other focuses on the ArcGIS API for Microsoft Silverlight/WPF. Both courses teach how to create high-performing applications that incorporate query, geocoding, geoprocessing, editing, and routing tasks.

In course exercises, students combine ArcGIS Online basemaps with ArcGIS Server services hosted in the Amazon cloud to build a fully functioning rich Internet application based on Flex or Silverlight technologies.
Behind the scenes, the courses leverage Amazon Web Services EC2 technology to access an AMI (Amazon Machine Image) preconfigured with all the software needed to host an ArcGIS Server instance. We now have a server available 24/7 from anywhere in the world these training classes are taught. Students will notice fast and seamless performance in the classroom as they interact with the services to build their apps.
