    At first look, the ArcGIS Parcel Fabric appears radically different, but in reality, it is very familiar to how we have been mapping parcels for decades. This workshop will explore the Parcel Fabric, and working through standard Combines, splits, and building CSMs and correcting older data to reflect new information. This is a hands-on workshop so bring your laptop, ArcGIS Pro software, and a desire to learn how the Parcel Fabric can make your data more accurate and your workflow more efficient.

    Description
    This workshop is the first of a pair of workshops related to the development of ArcGIS Pro Python tools and processes and will provide an introduction to Python programming. The topics to be covered include (1) getting started with Python; (2) use of JetBrains PyCharm Community Edition, a rich, powerful, and free Integrated Development Environment (IDE); and (3) Python fundamentals, including functions, classes and objects, and error handling. The workshop will not cover GIS topics, but is designed as a precursor for, and prerequisite requirement for, the second workshop, entitled "Introduction to ArcGIS Pro Python Tools and Processes Development." It may, therefore, be helpful for anyone wishing to use Python for any purpose.

    Intended Audience
    A
    nyone wishing to learn the fundamentals of Python programming.

    Prerequisite Requirements
    There are no prerequisite requirements. It will be assumed that attendees have little experience with Python and are essentially starting from scratch.

    Associated Workshop
    C
    ompletion of this workshop is required for anyone wishing to attend the associated "Introduction to ArcGIS Pro Python Tools and Processes Development" workshop. If you feel that your experience with Python is such that this introductory workshop is not necessary, please contact the instructor to discuss an exception to this prerequisite rule.

    Format and Technical Requirements
    The workshop will consist of a balance between lecture material and demonstrations. Instructions for setting up the required software will be provided prior to the workshop.

    A Zoom meeting link will be provided by the instructor.

    All attendees must use a microphone and webcam. No exceptions will be allowed for this requirement.

    Description
    This workshop is the second of a pair of workshops related to the development of ArcGIS Pro Python tools and processes and focuses on extending the capabilities of ArcGIS Pro via standalone scripts and tools that can operate within ArcGIS Pro or externally. Three primary topics will be covered: (1) ArcGIS Pro Python overview; (2) developing and running Python scripts; and (3) creating and using geoprocessing tools (Script Tools and Python Toolboxes). JetBrains PyCharm Community Edition will be used for coding demonstrations.

    Intended Audience
    GIS professionals familiar with ArcGIS Pro and wishing to use Python to develop GIS tools and processes.

    Prerequisite Requirement
    Anyone wishing to attend this workshop must also attend the first workshop in the pair, entitled "Introduction to Python Programming," which covers the main Python capabilities relevant to ArcGIS Pro tools and processes development. Exceptions to this requirement will only be made if the instructor is satisfied that your level of Python experience is strong enough that the introductory workshop is not necessary. Please contact the instructor to discuss your situation, if required.

    Format and Technical Requirements
    The workshop will consist of a balance between lecture material and demonstrations. Instructions for setting up the required software will be provided prior to the workshop.

    A Zoom meeting link will be provided by the instructor.

    All attendees must use a microphone and webcam. No exceptions will be allowed for this requirement.

    Description
    The purpose of this workshop is to help attendees get started with Version 4.x of the ArcGIS API for JavaScript and TypeScript and will consist of two parts. Part one will begin by covering core JavaScript principles pertinent to the API, debugging code, the use of the Visual Studio Code Integrated Development Environment (IDE) for application development, and basic use of ESLint, an analysis tool for finding and fixing problems in JavaScript code. Attendees will then apply what they've learned and evolve their programming skills by working through a series of application examples, each of which will demonstrate core capabilities of the ArcGIS API for JavaScript. Part two of the workshop will begin with an introduction to TypeScript, its use, and its value. Attendees will then gain an appreciation for the benefits of TypeScript by upgrading the code samples created in part one of the workshop.

    Intended Audience
    GIS professionals familiar basic JavaScript programming and wishing to use Version 4.x of the ArcGIS API for JavaScript and TypeScript.

    Prerequisite Requirement
    Attendees must have experience using JavaScript and Version 3.x of the ArcGIS API for JavaScript for simple web application (i.e., page) development.

    Format and Technical Requirements
    The workshop will consist of a balance between lecture material and demonstrations. Instructions for setting up the required software will be provided prior to the workshop.

    A Zoom meeting link will be provided by the instructor.

    All attendees must use a microphone and webcam. No exceptions will be allowed for this requirement.
