Overview

You don’t have to be a software developer to build valuable geo-enabled apps that make your communities smarter and businesses more successful. This course will show you how to combine location and narrative in one application to better communicate and broadcast your story, create custom web applications that solve problems in your community, and build powerful native applications for iOS and Android devices without touching a piece of code. If you are a developer, you’ll be interested in Esri’s APIs, SDKs, and the buzzing GeoDev community.

This course has really given me much insight into the potential of GIS. My experience gain after completing this course is about how information can be visually be presented for good public engagement and that includes helping get the information down to the non-GIS expect, what I call "the creation...

It was an amazing opportunity.Never knew i would be able to write a code.

The story map and geo app making has broadened my GIS Horizon and would be very applicable in my line of work.

Very informative course that gives geo geeks the knowledge and resources to build and configure geo apps.

The class is self paced .

The instructors are very thorough and fun too.

The exercises are well thought out and very detailed which makes them easy to follow.

I had the opportunity to make several geo-apps for varying uses and even write a bit of code!!

Course facilitators were always ready to help and promptly responded to our concerns.

I enjoyed every bit of it and would highly recommend the course.

Kudos Esri

This simple to follow course takes you through the various tools that ESRI offer to build geo apps - both for the web and mobile. You learn the correct procedures to create, publish and share your geo apps. You start from using and customising geo apps through the various numerous templates already on offer that require no coding, like Story Maps, all the way through tampering some code to customise them. For the seasoned developer, there are many tools to delve into, so there is something for everyone to learn.

This course has really exciting despite this narrow bandwidth we are experiencing down here. i have learned a lot when it comes to apps development. it is not as complicated as one might think. The instructions are very clear and specific. You dont even need Sharp analytical skills, anyone can learn and become a developer. I look forward to doing and learning from ESRI Online training and i will encourage my friends to join as well.

I have not built web or native apps and it is possible I may never. However what is important for me to know is how the API's and SDK's are used so that I am able to understand how tools developed by software application companies that I work with create new functionality into there existing products, specifically the ArcGIS API for JavaScript. This is a great class to help a person understand the basics.

Although I don't consider my self as a developer I found it very useful in my work. It was a good guided tour in the ESRI's developers Platform. I would advise both novice and experienced users, especially those with no programming experience to take the course. They will be more productive in their work and a little bit wiser.

Great introduction to Esri's Geo Apps. It was easy to follow and very well paced for me. I specifically took the course to get exposed to how I can extend and perhaps develop apps in the future - I got that and much more.

Serialise the certificate and indicate major tasks learned/trained to authenticate the certificate if possible. Need to combine the courses and give one super certificate.
