FOSS4G 2022 workshops

Working with OpenLayers
2022-08-22, 14:00–18:00 (Europe/Rome), 209

In this hands-on workshop, we'll take you from scratch to deploying a web mapping application with OpenLayers.

If you haven't used OpenLayers, haven't used it in a while, or are a regular user who wants to dig into some of the new features, this workshop is for you! The workshop is divided into a series of modules that introduce you to development with OpenLayers 6.

We'll start out by getting you set up with a development environment and walk through the available learning resources. The modules get more advanced as we walk through editing vector data, working with mobile devices, custom rendering with WebGL, styling vector tiles, and manipulating data with raster operations.

Core developers to the project will be on hand to walk you through the workshop exercises and answer questions you may have about your own OpenLayers projects.
