The Web AppBuilder for ArcGIS space and Web AppBuilder Custom Widgets group are some of the most active places in GeoNet, so for this week's GeoNet Community discussion, we'd like to explore how you are using this developer technology. 


Web AppBuilder for ArcGIS provides a simple solution for building web applications in ArcGIS. You can build apps that run anywhere, on any device, without writing a single line of code. Many users have found success using it. For example, hear how Maricopa County has used Web AppBuilder:   E380 Live: Maricopa County uses Web AppBuilder
