OpenLayers Feature Frenzy
2021-09-30, 15:00–15:30, Córdoba

A decade ago, OpenLayers was the number one choice for a web mapping library. With the rewrite in 2012 and the arising competition of Leaflet and Mapbox GL JS, there was a phase when the project lost popularity. Today, it has found its niche as a full-featured, flexible and high-performance geospatial JavaScript library that users can count on for the long haul, especially when their mapping needs get more complex.

This talk will provide you with a tour of the latest features in the library, including daring live demonstrations. We will present our recent and ongoing work on adding new features and making the library more fun to work with.

Whether you're a developer or decision maker, come to this talk to learn about the current status of OpenLayers, and see what's in store for the future.
