JavaScript Coders and the DevSummit DC

We’re all looking forward to seeing you at the first annual Esri Developer Summit, Washington, DC next week (Wednesday, February 12th). In addition to a two-hour Plenary session in the morning, there will be a whole day’s worth of deeper dive technical sessions. And if you are doing web development using JavaScript, we have a whole track of sessions just for you:

ArcGIS API for JavaScript: Building Web Applications – 11:15am – 12:15pm

This is an introductory-level session where James Tedrick and Evan Caldwell gets you started with JavaScript and web mapping  and spins you up on the latest capabilities of the API pretty quickly.

ArcGIS API for JavaScript: Advanced Topics – 1:30-2:30pm

Have you been using the API and are ready for more? Andy Gup is ready to take you there. He will be sharing with you apps, code, and techniques in the areas of: AMD, building custom widgets, performance techniques, unit testing, working with other JavaScript libraries, and also building web apps with JavaScript that work offline using HTML5 local storage options.

ArcGIS API for JavaScript: Building Mobile Web Apps – 2:45-3:45pm

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.

ArcGIS WebApp Builder: JavaScript Apps Made Easy – 4:00-5:00pm

In this session, Julie Powell will show how this new builder (still in beta) will help you create and configure custom web apps without writing one line of code. And for developers, it’s important to know how the builder allows you to create custom tools through its extensibility framework using HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.

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.
