Make a web app from start to finish with Mapbox


Javascript maps are everywhere and the tech powering them is changing all the time. This four-hour workshop will walk you through how to take your idea for an awesome web map design put it on the web using the latest open source tools, specs, and APIs from Mapbox. We'll focus on GL-powered maps using Mapbox GL JS, the Mapbox GL Style Spec, and data from OpenStreetMap. We'll discuss how GL maps differ from popular raster tile-driven mapping libraries like Leaflet and the Google Maps API.

By the end of the workshop, you should feel comfortable planning for your next web map, finding the right tools and documentation online, and taking advantage of the smooth and dynamic power of GL for web maps.
