2014 Winners – 100 lines or less of ArcGIS JS

HackathonThanks to everyone who participated in the 100 lines or less ArcGIS contest just before the Dev Summit.  This year we added a little spin by giving extra points to the best responsive mapping app – apps that worked well on multiple screen sizes and devices. Once again we used GitHub’s Fork – Push – Pull workflow to accept submissions which were flowing in right until the final hour. As always there were a ton of super-awesome apps submitted, but in the end, there were only three winners.  We demoed the apps live on stage just before Chris Wanstrath’s excellent GitHub keynote, but be sure to check them out yourself to see what you can do in 100 lines or less of ArcGIS JS!

10 open source projects every JavaScript geo dev should know about

Regardless of whether you’re a hacker or a well-seasoned developer, writing JavaScript geo apps from scratch takes some serious time, skill, and effort.  Thankfully there’s a few places you can go to get a head start, like the esri.github.io site.  There you’ll find over 170 geo projects on GitHub that are ready to go.  Most of the projects use the ArcGIS APIs and services to do something “geo”, but many integrate with other technologies as well, and others are pure JavaScript solutions.  The other cool thing is that they are all on GitHub, so if there’s a feature missing, it’s easy to make a pull request or log an issue to get it added!
