I was a little nervous when I first started the course because I am very new to java script and I was a little worried I might not be able to keep up with the rest of the class. Luckily, this course was structured in such a way that it was easy to follow and focused on how to access help from the ArcGIS Developers website while writing and troubleshooting your code.
The first day we jumped right into things learning how to create 2D and 3D web maps as well as development strategies for the 3x and 4x API’s.
My favorite part of the course was that after each topic we would complete a small exercise. Sometimes we would do this as individuals but, as the course progressed to more complex problems we be began to work on the assignments in groups. This was all made possible through the code pen environment which the coding portion of the course was taught through.
I also must give thanks to the course instructor, Andres Piasta. He was enthusiastic, patient, and helpful. He was always on hand when we had questions, and was understanding whenever I had to leave momentarily for classes. He also shared tonnes of great resources with the class when the course ended so that we could continue learning once the course was over.
