The ArcGIS for Developers team is proud to announce that the latest Quartz beta releases of the ArcGIS Runtime SDKs are now available! The evolution of ArcGIS technology has come a long way. If you are focused on creating native … Continue reading
The Evolve conference hosted by Xamarin, is a premier cross-platform mobile event where 1,500 developers, industry leaders and Xamarin experts converge to define the future of apps. This year Esri is a silver sponsor for the event and will be participating in activities at Evolve16 in Orlando, Florida, April 24-28.
Esri will be showcasing opportunities for Xamarin developers, including leveraging ArcGIS technology that integrates seamlessly with the Xamarin platform.
Rex Hansen, ArcGIS Runtime product manager, and Rich Zwaap, lead software developer for the ArcGIS Runtime SDK for Xamarin, will be giving a technical presentation on “Building Cross-Platform Mapping Apps with ArcGIS Runtime” for developers who need to build mapping apps for iOS, Android, and Windows. He’ll talk about what you need to get started, demonstrate how to add ArcGIS functionality to mobile apps, and touch on how you can share .NET code across iOS, Android and Windows platforms.
Through the Xamarin and Esri technology partnership, we are looking forward to showing the Xamarin developer community how they can integrate mapping and geospatial technology into the apps they create.
We are excited to announce the Quartz Tech Preview of ArcGIS Runtime SDK for Xamarin! This SDK enables .NET developers to build immersive, native mapping applications for Android and iOS devices using C#. It includes three APIs: Xamarin.Android and Xamarin.iOS for apps that need access to native functionality, and Xamarin.Forms to create shared UI layouts across Android and iOS. All are built on the same ArcGIS Runtime .NET API so they share a common design which encourages sharing code across application platforms.
Here is what you can expect to do in the Quartz Tech Preview of ArcGIS Runtime SDK for Xamarin:
- Open, edit, and author web maps from ArcGIS Online and Portal for ArcGIS
- Open ArcGIS mobile map packages containing maps, layers, locators, and networks
- Display layers that use ArcGIS services (tiled and dynamic map image layers, vector tiled layers, feature layers)
- Edit feature layers online and offline using geodatabase feature tables and the geodatabase sync task
- Work with anonymous and secured portals
The Tech Preview is open to the public. To learn how to get started, go to the ArcGIS for Developers web site and join the Tech Preview.
