Working with OpenLayers
2021-09-27, 09:00–13:00, Juana Azurduy

In this hands-on workshop, we'll take you from scratch to deploying a web mapping application with OpenLayers. The workshop is divided into a series of modules that introduce you to development with the latest version of OpenLayers. We'll start out by getting you set up with a development environment and walk through the available learning resources. The modules get more advanced as we walk through editing vector data, working with mobile devices, introduce custom rendering with WebGL, learn how to style vector tiles, and manipulate data with raster operations.

If you haven't yet used OpenLayers, haven't used it in a while, or are a regular user who wants to dig into some of the new features, this workshop is for you! Core developers to the project will be on hand to walk you through the workshop exercises and answer questions you may have about your own OpenLayers projects.
