Beginning ArcGIS Server Development with the JavaScript v4.0 API

Introduction

Version 4.0 of the ArcGIS API for JavaScript is a radical new release from Esri that aims to completely replace the existing method of developing ArcGIS Server applications with JavaScript. Its primary aims are to simplify the existing 3.x API and also provide support for both 2D and 3D web mapping applications.

As the web gets ever more efficient at delivering huge amounts of data in a split second, customer expectations of the performance and power of your GIS applications are growing too. And for some visualizations of your data, 2D is not enough. Version 4.0 allows you to build full-featured 3D applications powered by web scenes that can include rich data layers such as terrain, basemaps, imagery, features, and 3D objects. 3D mapping delivered over the web in near real-time.

It is a completely new approach to building web mapping applications. And although promising a new and easier way of development with some incredibly powerful features, it is no doubt going to provoke a fair bit of head-scratching when you first use it. Let us help by taking you through what you need to know to make use of this exciting and innovative new API.

Our hybrid classes are conducted through our online training platform.  All lectures are pre-recorded so that you can progress through the materials at your own pace.  The same applies to the exercises.  You will have access to the instructor via email, phone, or chat if you have questions or problems.  The instructor will be in weekly contact with the students in each class session.  Our goal is to get everyone through the materials during the session dates. However, access to the course materials never expires so if you don’t finish during the session dates you will still have access to the materials.

"I have attended a number of instructor lead  training courses offered by ESRI, which are great in their own right, but the Mastering the ArcGIS Server JavaScript API course gets much more in-depth than they often do.  I really liked the recommended reading, they helped expand the terms being covered in lecture to concrete examples that could be related back to my work more directly instead of just having the lecture and exercises alone.  I learned a lot andwill recommend this and other GeoSpatial Training courses to the GIS'ers I know. Thanks for putting this course together and offering it ...
