A Top 10 for Teaching Dynamo by Colin McCrone

This is a post by Colin McCrone that went up on the Dynamo Blog today. It’s a great read for anyone, but really helpful for those that have been tasked with teaching others how to use Dynamo.

Head over to the Dynamo Blog and check it out!

DoC Event #003 – Code vs. Node: Smackdown! with Eddy Bussiere & Carl Storms

Update: Dataset here

Wednesday, October 11th, 2017

6:00 pm to 8:00 pm

GEC ArchitectureSuite 300, 2207 4th Street SW, Calgary, AB T2S 1X1

This, the third DoC event, and the first of the 2017- 2018 season will be a live presentation by Eddy Bussiere from SMP Engineering & Carl Storms from IMAGINiT, both will be supporting one side of the “Code vs. Node” debate.

Eddy will be presenting the “Code” side of the debate talking about using C# code to make macros for Revit, that will help automate or otherwise improve your Revit workflow. Carl will be speaking on behave of the “Node” side of the debate showing how Dynamo can also be used, without the need for coding, to help automate or otherwise improve your Revit workflow.

This is will be a grudge match for the ages that you will not want to miss!

The idea for this event came from a session at this years BILT North America called – Code vs. Node: The Ultimate Revit Automation Smackdown! presented by Michael Kilkelly, who has been nice enough to let us deliver our version of his topic.

Michael runs a great website called ArchSmater that you should check out if you like what you see, some of the things he overs include Macro’s, Dynamo, Revit Templates, and even has his own custom Revit add-ons.
