ArcGIS AppStudio Virtual Workshop Recap

The AppStudio team periodically hosts live hands-on workshops for our users. This training provides attendees the knowledge and skills they need to quickly start building cross-platform native apps.  Due to social distancing restrictions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, we knew many of our users would be working from home.  To make the best of these unfortunate, unprecedented, and unique times we decided to engage virtually with an audience that was free from some of the day-to-day operations of an office environment.  A new virtual AppStudio workshop was quickly scheduled with four workshop sessions (3 hours per session) delivered over two weeks. More than 150 Esri users attended the workshop from all over the world, and we received lots of positive feedback.
