Fusion is a web-mapping application development framework. It allows non-spatial web developers to build rich mapping applications quickly and easily. Using widgets, developers are able to add, remove, or modify functionality using standard-compliant HTML and CSS. Fusion does not require any proprietary browser plug-ins and works in all the major browsers on Windows, Mac, and Linux.

Fusion initially provides support for MapGuide Open Source and MapServer web mapping architectures, but it incorporates the OpenLayers client API so Fusion can be extended to use any server technology supported by OpenLayers.

This workshop will cover a range of topics starting with the basics - dowload, install and configure Fusion - to more advanced usage - customizing your application and creating custom widgets.

The target audience for this workshop are those tasked with implementing applications and have a basic understanding of HTML, CSS, XML and JavaScript.
