I’ve gone through a basic c course and can program regrettably quite poor programs, but I have no idea how to link the c knowledge to actually programming for arcgis in order to progress. NET is to program more and more but are there any good. NET programming books or courses I can learn techniques from?
Are there any useful books or websites? This question’s answers are a collaborative effort: No additional answers can be added here. ESRI have a heap of videosand I think these are the best resources to get started. If you want to write stuff that avoids the scorn and derision of programmers, stuff that you can feel proud of in a portfolio, you’ll want to get a really firm grasp of object oriented design and development if you don’t already.
Mastering specific languages and frameworks can come later.
By all means, use. Here are a few to start:. Code Complete is pretty big, but the rest of them can be quick reads. I’d actually recommend the first two books for GIS people that will never write a line of code. There is some great stuff in there on source control, developsr management, communication, and good design principals.
Just wanted to add a bit from my personal experience. I learned mainly as a by-product of employer needs. Acobjects best resource, in my opinion, was really the API and help documentation.
When first breaking into an unknown area, I would read a bit of the conceptual help, then dive into coding and reference the API doc as needed. Then, if I would get stuck, I would use the Esri forums. Existing code samples would occasionally be helpful, but I usually could not find much that was applicable to what I was working on – that may not so much be the case now. The Esri videos and this great site were also not yet available, so those are certainly additional resources.
I’ll add that I studied geography, GIS, and some comp-sci at a university, and I think it’s difficult to get a really good grasp on GIS dev from “classwork,” or from approaching things in a very general way.
If you are with an employer that works with GIS, I would suggest talking to the GIS folks there to identify a need that would make a good little dev testbed for you – even if you have to work on it on your own time. Barring that, I would try to come up with some specific piece of functionality that you would like to have or that you think would be interesting to put together, then work on discovering what you need to know to accomplish that.
Not that you can’t learn anything from stale code repositories. See the ArcObjects Help. Specially the add-in stuff.

I’d suggest not relying on the ESRI samples to learn programming skills in general or. That’s not a slam on the samples or the people who prepared them; samples are meant to show how a particular thing could or should work. For brevity, a lot of things are left out of samples. NET and C was to study the certification books.
At the time, there was a lot of emphasis on what was different between COM and. NET since it was new.
A good grounding in your development language of choice arconjects help you navigate through the minefield of software company samples and documentation. Looking at the online resources for Esri Dveloper couldn’t help but notice how ArcObjects doesn’t have its share of rich and up to date resources as other ArcGIS technologies. The series are based on a fictional project that I created called “Bestaurants”, where you have to create an application on top of ArcMap to search, manage, add, delete restaurants.

With each episode we introduce a new interface and learn about the fine grained objects in ArcObjects in a fun way! Feel free to check it out now, and share it with any GIS geek you may know. Suggestions are always welcomed to improve the series.
See the entire playlist, 14 episodes so far. I think this is one of the best reference books for beginners to start with basic. NET concepts and tying them into ArcObjects.
It comes up with sample C codes and data sets. This sample will allow you to get a map displayed inside of a Visual Studio environment. You can program in C or VB. It will be deprecated after its next release. However, if you are using 9. There are plenty of resources online, ESRI and otherwise.
As for getting better at programming in general, never stop reading! Read programming blogs and website.

Never be afraid to ask questions. Read Code Complete, and other highly regarded books on programming and software development. Read everything you can get your hands on! Migrating over from VBA to.
NET is quite tricky. I know python is all the rage at v10, but hoping ESRI put something together for a pathway around moving to.
NET with Add-In s. Home Questions Tags Users Unanswered. Here are few resources to get you started. Here are a few to start: Best practices when writing code, and some good stuff on the software project life cycle. Similar to the above, but with a great deal more detail and examples. TDD forces you to conform to some of the practices the two above books recommend. Head First Design Patterns: If you are having to deal with ArcObjects, you are going to want to know about design patterns.
The API is sick with them. I couldn’t agree more. Take a grass roots approach and it will pay dividends. I have a similar experience. It worked well for me!

Existing code in addition to the other answers I post videos weekly, whenever the chance permits, as this is something I do on my own time. Who knows, maybe once we finish this, I might start another series.
