Intro to Web Programming for GIS Applications

From Mike Miller:

I just released a new course called “Introduction to Web Programming for GIS Applications” on Udemy. I would like to offer the members of SoCalGIS 50% off ($50 for 96 lectures covering 13 hours) using the following link.

https://www.udemy.com/introduction-to-web-programming-for-gis-applications/?couponCode=SOCALGIS

The course covers the basic of HTML, CSS, JavaScript, jQuery, Bootstrap, PHP, Leaflet, and PostGIS with an emphasis on the parts important for GIS Applications. Although I use examples from Open Source software for practical reasons, Most of the material is applicable to web mapping on commercial platforms as well.

This course is intended to be the fouindation for further courses I am developing on Client side GIS applications, Server side GIS applications, and Mobile application development.

Non-profits are eligible for further discounts. Just email me at lstomsl@gmail.com and tell me how you use GIS to make the world a better place.

Thanks,
Mike Miller
