A few spots left for online API classes starting this week

Now’s the time to start learning how to write your own Revit API programs and create your own solutions to Make Revit Better! No programming experience needed. Small group classes make sure that you get personalized attention and learn at the pace that is just right for you.

The classes will be held every other week on:

  • Monday 10:00-11:30am
  • Tuesday 1:00-2:30pm
  • Wednesday 3:30-5:00pm
  • Friday 3:30-5:00pm

Using the Revit API to collect and count Curtain Panels (and Rooms and other “non-native” elements)

In the garden and natural world, “non-native” species can beĀ invasives that lack predators and overwhelm the existing ecosystem.

For example, rooting and wallowing by non-native hogs causes extensive damage to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

Revit also has non-native classes like Curtain Panels and Rooms. They don’t root and wallow, but they can cause a minor complication as described in the video below.

Revit 2014 Macros in Ruby

Does it seem like all the cool kids are coding in Ruby these days?

If you want to be cool like them, here is a quick overview on how you can get started creating Revit macros in Ruby, a new feature in the 2014 API. I’m not sure there is anything you can do with Ruby that you can’t do in C#, but according to some people Ruby is more fun.

Customized API Training from the Comfort of Your Home

  • Would you like to get started with the Revit API so you can make your own wonderful macros and commands?
  • Tired of wasting hours searching the web for code samples or tutorials?
  • Want to learn on your schedule with personalized instruction?

A couple experienced Revit users who are new to the API are interested in forming a small group to do a series of live, Revit API training sessions that I will teach over Google Hangout.

Class size limited to 5. Dates & times will be chosen to fit your schedule – we will probably meet 2-4 times per month. Cost is $45 per hour for each student and you can pay per class (no long-term commitment needed).
