The ArcGIS Pro SDK at Developer Summit 2016

The New Year is just around the corner, and with it, the Esri Developer Summit in Palm Springs, scheduled for March 8 – 11, 2016.

The ArcGIS Pro SDK Team has put together a very comprehensive line-up of technical workshops to help you get up to speed with the .NET Pro SDK at Dev Summit.  This year the team will also be offering a two-day pre-summit hands on training course, March 6 – 7.  If you’re looking for a great opportunity to get introduced to the Pro SDK directly from the Pro SDK Team, this is the place to be.  Plan to bring your own device and get ready to learn.  Register early as there are only 45 seats available for this hands-on training course.  Just register for Dev Summit and then you can register for the pre-summit course.

Here’s a quick take on the Pro SDK offerings at Dev Summit 2016:

Pre-summit Hands-On Training:

.NET Pro SDK Workshop – at the Hard Rock Hotel

March 6–7, 8:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m.

This two-day hands-on training course will introduce you to the fundamentals of using the ArcGIS Pro .NET SDK to customize and extend the application. With this 64-bit native .NET SDK, you can create add-ins to automate existing processes and to include new capabilities that you design and write. This set of APIs exposes to .NET developers core aspects of ArcGIS Pro: 2D, 3D, sharing, integration with ArcGIS Online, Geodatabase, Geometry, Editing, Layouts, and more. The APIs are asynchronous and support multi-threaded programming. This course assumes that you already have at least a few months experience using ArcGIS Pro and developing Windows applications using Visual Studio.

One-hour Technical Sessions offered during Dev Summit:

ArcGIS Pro SDK for .NET Programming Patterns
Learn how to write add-ins for ArcGIS Pro. We introduce the ArcGIS Pro SDK for .NET.  We cover declarative programming with DAML and the Pro UI Elements. We delve into Pro’s new asynchronous APIs learning how to use async and await and Pro Framework’s QueuedTask.

ArcGIS Pro SDK for .NET:  UI Design and MVVM
Learn how to write Add-ins for Pro with advanced user interface components. We focus on MVVM and integration of WPF to write compelling UIs with Pro. We also cover multi-threading considerations when developing UIs in Pro.

ArcGIS Pro SDK for .NET:  Editing and Geodatabase Integration
Learn how to write construction and editing tools in Pro. We customize both the DAML and code-behind to integrate custom construction tools into the Pro Editor and layer Create Feature templates. We introduce edit operations for creating and modifying Geodatabase features.

ArcGIS Pro SDK for .NET:  Animation and Map Exploration
Learn about the camera for 2D and 3D and 2D and 3D selection with Map Tools. The second half of the session introduces the new Animation API for Pro.

ArcGIS Pro SDK for .NET: Integration with ArcGIS Online
Learn how to write ArcGIS Pro add-ins that take advantage of Pro’s integration with Portal and ArcGIS Online. Use EsriHttpClient and Json.Net to search and retrieve Online items such as map services, feature services, and web maps and add them to your project. We cover item uploading as well.

We look forward to seeing you in March.  In the meantime, we encourage you to check out the many SDK resources available, like the Pro SDK wiki on GitHub and familiarize yourself with the concepts, FAQ page, ProGuides, ProSnippets and many community samples.  This will help you make the most of your time in the Dev Summit Pro SDK workshops.

 Happy Holidays from the Pro SDK Team!
