The Esri 2016 Developer Summit will be held in Palm Springs, CA next week and we are looking forward to meeting with our user and developer community to talk about Web AppBuilder for ArcGIS. We’ll be working in the main Showcase (ArcGIS Online island) and presenting several sessions.
Below are the technical sessions related to Web AppBuilder at Dev Summit:
Tuesday March 8, 1pm – 2pm
Location: Primrose B
Web AppBuilder for ArcGIS: Customizing and Extending
Wednesday March 9, 5:30pm – 6:30pm
As a developer, you can create your own focused workflows by building custom widgets which your users can then configure into their applications. In addition, you can completely customize the look and feel of the app by developing your own styles and layouts. Come to this session to learn all about customizing and extending the Web AppBuilder.
Web AppBuilder for ArcGIS: Development tools and Techniques
Friday March 11, 8:30am – 9:30am and 1pm – 2pm (2 offerings)
Location: Smoketree A-E
• Automating file management and integration with version control systems using Grunt
• Scaffolding widgets using Yeoman generators
Web AppBuilder for ArcGIS: Customizing Themes
Wednesday March 9, 10:30am – 11:30am
Location: Mojave Learning Center
This session will be an introduction to Web Appbuilder themes, and a step by step overview on how to customize themes based on different requirements. The session will cover how to:
• Change branding colors, logos
• Update layout such as reposition UI elements, add/remove placeholders, and repurpose or combine existing panels
• Customize styles from existing themes
• Customize dijits, ArcGIS API widgets, and Web AppBuilder widgets to create a new theme
Web AppBuilder for ArcGIS: Building 3D Apps
Wednesday March 9, 4pm – 5pm
In this session, the presenters will show how the Web AppBuilder can be used to build rich and compelling 3D mapping applications that leverage web scenes and 3D animations.
Web AppBuilder for ArcGIS: In-Depth Enterprise Deployment
Wednesday March 9, 2:30pm – 3:30pm
Location: Demo Theater 1 – Showcase
Discover common implementation patterns for deploying Web AppBuilder into enterprise environments. We’ll also share considerations and best practices that developers should keep in mind as they address enterprise logins, proxies, SSL, and other enterprise business needs.
Build Your Web AppBuilder Widgets Using TypeScript by Mark Cederholm
Wednesday March 9, 1:35pm – 2pm
Location: Mesquite C
Thursday March 10, 2:30pm – 2:55pm
Location: Mesquite B
While humanitarian aid and pest eradication may seem unrelated, the particular case of the Chigoe Flea (Tunga penetrans) in sub-Saharan Africa demands new approaches to managing parasitic superinfection across developing nations. The Chigoe Flea (called the Jigger in Kenya) negatively impact the quality of life of millions of the extreme poor in developing tropical or sub-tropical countries worldwide. Approximately 4% of Kenya’s total population suffer from jigger infestation—1.4 million Kenyans. The total population at risk—10 million—are the very young, elderly, or physically and/or developmentally disabled. Like the Carter Center’s success in applying GIS to the successful eradication of the Guinea Worm, this project hopes to reveal new and innovative ways that GIS, and specifically mobile apps, can be utilized to strategically manage the eradication of a human parasite. What follows is a series of three Web Apps leveraging the power of spatial data for the purpose of parasitic flea eradication. Prototypes will be modeled on the country of Kenya, with eventual expansion to Uganda, and then other sub-Saharan countries.
Future uses for applications of these types are widespread: the expanding range of Africanized honeybees, Red Imported Fire Ant, Formosan termite, Dutch Elm Disease, brown marmorated stink bug, and the Pine Bark Beetle are of particular concern for North America, while overseas (mosquito-borne) malaria, mangoworms, leishmaniasis, Chagas disease and other Neglected Tropical Diseases can be predicted, monitored, and managed using a similar strategy.
Plenty of sessions for you to check out! We’re looking forward to meeting with the Web AppBuilder community next week,
