PTV Developer Bootcamp

From Geocoding to Routing

Setting the Scene – From Geocoding to Routing

Let's get started with our kick-off event in the PTV Developer Bootcamp. In the first session, we'll get you covered with the basics, so that you have the perfect foundation for your PTV Developer project. We'll start of with basic geocoding, getting the pin points displayed on our PTV maps and then build our first route. In addition, Excel import via drag and drop as well as Excel export will make your life so much easier. To top it off, we'll do some basic ETA calculations and take a look at CO2 emissions reporting. While working with state-of-the-art development frameworks and libraries such as Tailwind, Next JS, TypeScript and React, we'll build a responsive, state of the art web app based on a REST web service in the backend.
