This from Esri… Thousands of government entities use Esri’s location intelligence solutions globally, solving the most complex civic challenges. Code for America understands the vital role technology plays in addressing community challenges and supports these efforts every year by sponsoring the National Day of Civic Hacking – this year falling tomorrow, August 11.
Many of our most complex civic problems involve spatial relationships of people, things, and resources moving over space and time. Esri’s ArcGIS is a powerful tool for developers hacking to better solve the problems vexing their communities. This weekend, Esri is supporting the Code for America Brigades this weekend by:
- Providing free developer subscriptions to ArcGIS Online. This free subscription gives developers access to developer APIs, along with app templates, app builders, sample code, example apps, and online community discussion forums. Developers also get 50 cloud credits a month they can use for storing data and maps and using analytical tools. Sign up at https://developers.arcgis.com
- Providing voucher codes which give up to 1,000 additional ArcGIS Online cloud credits. Voucher code can be obtained by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
- Providing ArcGIS DevLabs, a series of short (10-15 minute) self-paced tutorials for getting started with ArcGIS. https://developers.arcgis.com/labs
