ArcGIS Server .NET Code Gallery samples

Well what do you know... I'm also on youtube now. Together with several of our team members I'm demoing a custom renderer from the Code Gallery. Check it out!

Here are the links to the samples:

Other samples that you should check out (because I wrote them :-)):

Utility library: Simplifies ADF development for a number of common tasks. For example add a resource in one line of code, or create a redline tool using only a couple lines of code.

DHTML ScaleBar: Pure client-side scalebar. Instead of using the map services for drawing the scalebar, it uses a pure clientside approach (javascript), removing the need for server requests and scalebar re-rendering. It's also useful for resources that doesn't support rendering scalebars.

If you want know more I'll be working at the Server Showcase at the ESRI User Conference next week as well as demoing some more samples at the .NET SIG.

ArcGIS Server Team Blog

Art recently promised that there would be an ArcGIS Server Development Blog soon, and now it's there !
Check out our the new blog at http://blogs.esri.com/Dev/blogs/arcgisserver/
You can also find a link to the blog from http://blogs.esri.com

And even better! The server is also running ArcGIS Server.NET, so you can see the examples in action!

From the blog:

This blog is written directly by the ArcGIS Server Development Team.  We are very excited about the ArcGIS Server 9.2 release.  We have so much to share with the user community.  Topics will range from detailed programming information ("What is a page life cycle in the Web ADF?") to GIS methodology ("What is the best methodology to produce map caches?") for serving spatial data with ArcGIS Server.  One of the key parts to this blog will be the use of an example site.  We intend to post useful entries for our users which are linked directly to examples that we have built that you can access live from the Internet.

 

Jeremy has already put up a huge post on creating a website with cached tiles and custom tasks, including live running samples you can try.

First day at ESRI

I just had my first day at ESRI today, where I have joined the ArcGIS Server .NET ADF team.

Everything here seemed well-prepared and set-up when I got there, including a small "seminar" for everyone who started as ESRI today, and ready-installed desktop and laptop computers.

I already got to look "under the hood" of AGS and play around with it - there's definitely some very cool stuff in there! Hopefully I'll get some time to blog some more about it later - or you can have a look at Arts blog as well.
