Training for Aspiring Web App Developers
This article as a PDF.
An updated version of a popular instructor-led course to help GIS professionals with little to no programming experience acquire requisite skills to build high-performing web apps has been released by Esri Training Services.
The updated course also uses a more structured and highly interactive instructional approach. In each lesson, the instructor presents conceptual material and facilitates group breakout sessions. Attendees brainstorm together to solve application scenarios and complete activities such as code snippet examinations. Based on what they have learned at that point in the course, attendees identify the functionality enabled by the code snippet, explain the elements in the code structure, and together discuss how they might use that functionality in their own web apps.
The instructor then demonstrates the coding workflow for the API functionality highlighted in each lesson’s hands-on exercise. Attendees repeat the workflow steps on their own using CodePen, a popular website that provides an environment for writing, previewing, and sharing code. Code solution files are provided in case attendees get stuck.
