When you're at a hackathon, you tend to use the tools that you know. That way you can put all of your effort and time into the app you're trying to build, and not into having to learn a new tool that might set you back.
But what if you want to use ArcGIS but don't have much experience with it?
Well,here's a videothat in just 30 minutes will give you everything you need to get going and get productive with ArcGIS Platform and ArcGIS Online for hosting data, making maps, using location services, and making apps. Even during a fast-paced hackathon you may find that spinning up on a few key skills could be a great investment when you see what kinds of capabilities you can bring to your project.
