GeoDev Meetup - Indianapolis, IN

In collaboration with the Indiana GIS Conference being held May 7-8, we are back after a long wait hosting an Esri GeoDev Meetup in Indianapolis, IN. Food and beverages will be provided! (It's the pre-dinner before your dinner.)

This GeoDev Meetup is a social gathering for developers to discuss geospatial technologies, complementary third-party tools, and development platforms (e.g., Silverlight, Java, Flex, JavaScript) that are supported by Esri. Presentations run the gamut of our community: from Web development to mobile location development for iOS, Android and Windows Phone 7 to automating tasks with Python. Developers of all levels of expertise are welcome, from seasoned GIS professionals to those new to geospatial development. At these meet ups, you can: Meet cool people. (Duh, we're there.)

Show us what you got by demo'ing your application or framework.

Make a name for yourself in presenting a cool new/interesting concept or idea.

Impress someone by sharing your experiences.

Make BFFs for life - connect with other developers! Here's what's on the agenda: 

5:30 - 6:30 PM Registration and Social (Appetizers and Beverages served - YES!) 

6:30 - 7:00 PM Keynote

7:00 - 8:00 PM Lightning Talks

    Here is information on how you can request joining the Beta program for the new ArcGIS WebApp Builder:

    The first page says that you need either Portal for ArcGIS or an organizational subscription to ArcGIS Online, but if you don’t have either of these, you can also have a developer subscription to ArcGIS Online.

    Here's the more permanent site with the Print Plus Widget for the ArcGIS WebApp Builder. It also has a very early version of Robert Scheitlin's eSearch Widget.

    Let me know if the Print Plus Widget doesn't work well on any device.

    Understood. Thanks for the additional info. Ok, I just got to town moments ago. I'll have more info for you tonight; see you then.

    Jim, I've spent the whole day working this. I think of it as pure R & D. Figure things out and then maybe you can use them some day. It's how Xerox invented the mouse, the PC, the laser printer, ethernet, what became Windows and Microsoft Word, etc. at the Palo Alto Research Center (PARC).

    The pan events work, but only if I use an undocumented event property, 'screenPoint' on the 'pan' event. I have to determine if the pan starts inside the layout or not. I have all of the code in the widget now and can toggle between using pan events for all devices or swipe events for touch devices and mouse-drag events for non-touch devices.

    Performance seems to be consistent for all options. The pan events may have an advantage for users with both a mouse and a touch screen because the swipe events don't fire for a mouse and the pan events do.

    Yeah that's a good question. I'll be candid to say that those 3 "swipe~" events you mentioned are so undocumented even I've never heard of them. I'll test quick to see if mouse-drag-start, mouse-drag, and mouse-drag-end fire when single-finger gesturing on a tablet so that you can code against those documented ones (not to mention click, mouse-down, mouse-up). But even without them, since you're doing panning, there are the pan-start, pan, and pan-end events. Anyways, let me get back to you on this.

    By the way, would you want to do a 5-min LightningTalk on what you've been working on? Perhaps this app here? I was going to suggest something maybe like you did at the DevSummit, but I just noticed that you're already presenting that at the conf on Wednesday. :-)

    Yes, I stumbled onto that after my original post and liked it. I'm using some undocumented API map events: swipe-start, swipe-move, and swipe-end to make this work on touch devices. Do you know why they aren't documented? The behavior is consistent on iPhone, iPad, several Android phones, and Windows phone, but I always worry a bit when I get outside the documented API. - Larry

    Larry: on an iPad, if I one-finger drag inside the layout, it pans the map inside the layout, but if I one-finger drag somewhere inside the red area of the layout, it moves the layout on the display and does not pan the map inside it. Is that what you're seeing? - Jim

    Take a look at my Print Plus Widget in the new JavaScript Viewer that I made with the WebApp Builder. On the desktop, you can drag the layout around on the map. Anyone know how to do that with on an iPad? I'm not finding much help online.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
