NW8 - Getting Started with the ArcGIS API for javascript 4.x (Full-Day) Workshop
Monday, October 3, 2022 - 8:30 AM - 5:00 PM
Instructor: David Howes, Ph.D., Geospatial Information Scientist & Owner, David Howes, LLC., Seattle, WA

Web-based services, including data services and applications, are central to modern GIS and making the most of these services invariably involves working with JavaScript. For GIS professionals using Esri technology, the ArcGIS API (Application Programming Interface) for JavaScript offers a rich array of capabilities to support web-based mapping application development and geoprocessing. The latest version of the API, Version 4.x, is a significant upgrade from Version 3.x and supports Esri's current web technology solutions, including the ArcGIS Online Map Viewer, Experience Builder, and Instant Apps. Learning JavaScript and the ArcGIS API for JavaScript allows GIS professionals to take advantage of the technology used in solutions such as these to develop their own custom applications and enrich their spatial data delivery and geoprocessing needs.

The purpose of this workshop is to help attendees get started with Version 4.x of the ArcGIS API for JavaScript. The workshop will cover four topics:
  1. Core JavaScript principles pertinent to the API
  2. Use of Visual Studio Code, a rich, powerful, and free Integrated Development Environment (IDE)
  3. Debugging code
  4. Basic use of ESLint, an analysis tool for finding and fixing problems in JavaScript code. 

Attendees will apply what they've learned and evolve their programming skills by working through a series of application examples, each of which will demonstrate core capabilities of the API.

Intended Audience: GIS professionals familiar with basic JavaScript programming and wishing to develop applications using Version 4.x of the ArcGIS API for JavaScript.

Prerequisite Requirement: Attendees must have experience using JavaScript for simple web application (i.e., page) development. Experience with Version 3.x of the ArcGIS API for JavaScript will be helpful, but not strictly required. Please contact the instructor if you would like to attend the workshop, but have any concerns about the prerequisite requirements.

Format and Technical Requirements: The workshop will consist of a balance between lecture material and demonstrations. Attendees must bring their own laptop and instructions for setting up the required software will be provided prior to the workshop.

Class Size: Limited to 50 students.

Cost: $350 if registered for the full conference.

Full Registration includes one full or half-day URISA workshop (normally $200); and the opportunity to register for one of the free half-day NWGIS courses (NW 2, 4, 7, or 10). There is no limit to the number of NWGIS fee-based courses you can register for, as long as there are no schedule conflicts.
