Christopher Eby, Application Developer, GeoDecisions



ArcGIS Online, Web AppBuilder for ArcGIS, and the like are excellent ways to build web interfaces to your ESRI maps but they only get you so far. For the ultimate level of web map flexibility and customization, you will need to use the ArcGIS API for JavaScript. This course will walk users through creating a web page that displays an ArcGIS web map using the JavaScript API. It will also discuss the Dojo JavaScript framework, modern JavaScript development, ArcGIS widgets, and when to use the JavaScript API.


Christopher Eby has about 11 years of software development experience focused on web development and modern JavaScript frameworks. He has been working in the Harrisburg area since 2011, first at Deloitte Consulting and later at GeoDecisions. Christopher has found GIS fascinating since college where he did research on how to use AI to improve geocoding in rural areas, and he enjoys building GIS-based applications at GeoDecisions.
