ArcGIS Pro tips – Working with the ArcGIS Pro SDKs

ArcGIS Pro is the future for Esri and for the ArcGIS roadmap. Therefore, you really can’t go wrong in advancing your skills and Geodev capabilities by learning more about ArcGIS Pro. For the developer or would-be developer that means learning about custom development tools and resources, like the ArcGIS Pro SDK.

Recall, the ArcGIS Pro SDK (for Microsoft .NET) enables developers to build add-ins and other configurations that support further customization of the Pro UI and user experience. At the 2018 DevSummit there were a number of ArcGIS Pro technical sessions and they have all been archived and made available to all. These sessions are a great way to get introduced to, and updated on, the latest SDK information and development patterns. The following are just several of the sessions, along with links to supporting slides:

Once you become a “Pro” with the SDK for Pro, you might consider building add-ins and making them available to all.  Recently the ArcGIS Marketplace enabled the ability for organizations to market and distribute ArcGIS Pro add-ins and Web AppBuilder widgets directly from the Marketplace site.  This new capability provides users with the ability to create informative product listings from which they deploy their products. Information about becoming an ArcGIS Marketplace provider can be found HERE. Partnerships are important to us at GEO Jobe and to our business. The Esri Partner Program ensures that we are on the cutting edge when it comes to technology. In addition to having support from Esri and access to software,resources, and community we are also building our own network, and partnering up with other Esri Partner companies. Perhaps we can partner or assist you in deploying your apps in the Marketplace. Read more a bout opportunities.

Extend ArcGIS Pro with ArcGIS Pro SDK for .NET. ArcGIS Pro SDK for .NET is based on the add-in and configurations extensibility pattern. Leverage modern .NET features and patterns such as Task Asynchronous Programming (TAP), LINQ, WPF Binding, and MVVM to write integrated 2D/3D add-ins using Pro’s new APIs. (Source: Wiki)
