We are hosting a HackerLab event in Philadelphia at the Azavea ( office in coordination with Philly Tech Week ( This is a four-hour, hands-on, strategically guided lab for developers that will cover how to build map apps with ArcGIS Online, APIs and Services, Open Source, and also with AppStudio for ArcGIS (for native apps). If you're lucky, you may even get to test-drive AppStudio to build native apps with QML. You will be given time to play in between the tutorials. We will have some snacks for you to munch on!

This is a BYOM, BYOI, BYOA, and BYOD event: bring your own machine (seriously, we don't have any extras), ideas, apps and data. Yeah.

Oh and here is a list of the required materials:

1. Computer

2. Text editor (nice to have, but not a requirement: Git and GitHub)

3. ArcGIS for Developers or ArcGIS Organization account
