The Road Ahead for ArcREST

If you are going to San Diego this year, you can see me in action presenting in the demo theater about ArcREST.  I'm going to do some demos, talk about ArcREST basics, and discuss the road ahead.  In turn you can ask questions and learn something new.

Here are the details:
12:30 PM - 01:15 PM : Using the ArcREST Python Package on Tuesday 7/21/2015.

As we approach Esri's UC 2015, I wanted to layout what is coming for the next version of ArcREST for those who cannot attend my presentation.

Here is a brief list of what is coming very soon:

  • Ntlm, PKI and LDAP security handlers
  • improved backend handling of GET and POST functions
  • cleaner code
  • additional geometry service functions
  • additional query options
and much more...

The biggest focus is supporting ArcGIS server, portal or online sites that do not use the standard username/password token based security.  

The ArcREST team is also taking requests for additional functions that we may have missed or didn't include.  The project is built around you the user, so help out and log an enhancement request or an issue here. (https://github.com/esri/arcrest/issues).
