Learning resources for ArcGIS API for Python

Blog Post created by AMani-esristaff Employee on Apr 8, 2017

At Esri, we are very excited that despite being a relatively new product, the Python API has generated a lot of interest and adoption from our user community. When we started to design this API, one of our goals was that it should be easy enough for a beginner while being intuitive and elegant enough for a seasoned Python developer. While the API has guideAPI reference and sample notebooks, we continue to develop talks, demos and courses for it. This blog is a spot to collect and curate them.


This does not have to contain only the resources from Esri, if you delivered a talk, please share it with us or post it as a comment.
