Coding web maps is the ability that becomes crucial for people working in the geo industry. In reality the most difficult part is to start. The coding part is something that you can learn especially with all the awesome APIs and libraries available these days.
In order to help you overcome this most difficult first step we have partnered with Kuba Konczyk who is known for his awesome online webinars for everyone who would like to start coding web maps.
This is a first tutorial of a series we will publish on Geoawesomeness. During this first hour you’ll get a high level introduction to web development:
