Creating Templates

Blog Post created by csergent08 Champion on Dec 30, 2014

This year is a new year in development for me. I started programming using the JavaScript AMD. Silverlight and Flex are doomed through Esri, but who knows they might have life in open source. But for now, I am sticking with JavaScript. The first thing I decided to do was to start building some templates using our web services and Esri's samples. By our web services I mean the City of Decatur in Illinois. Each template I create is based off of an example. Once I complete small templates I combine them into bigger templates. This is providing me with starting pieces for new projects. Is this the best way? I don't know, but it's working so far. My first template was just a simple map. Maybe I should start there and talk about what I am doing through Github with examples. Thoughts? I'm still learning, so I value your opinion.
