It's my pleasure to announce the launch of the “My First Revit Plug-in” guide presented to you by Autodesk Developer Network.
Are you an Autodesk Revit power user with an interest in becoming even more productive? Would you like to automate or extend the capabilities of Revit, but are new to computer programming? Are you envious of all the really cool add-ins that others are developing and you want to join the fold or show them you can do better. If so, then this guide is designed for you.
“My First Plug-in” is a self-paced tutorial guide for a smooth introduction into the programming world. This is a “one-stop shop” learning path for users who know Autodesk products but are absolutely new to programming and are thinking about taking the plunge. In this guide, you will be working with the Autodesk Revit .NET API and the C# programming language. The supported product version is Autodesk Revit Architecture 2011 and succeeding versions.
I wanted to give a heart felt thank you to the ADN Revit team who developed the “My First Plug-in” material. The ADN Revit team have worked hard to support the Revit API since the first release of the API in Revit Architecture v8.0. They have been dedicated since day one to helping our users build great solutions on top of Revit and this is simply another example of that hard work and dedication.
If you get the chance to test the guide and you have feedback please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org!
Please try it out and I look forward to seeing what great things you come up with. I hope you will be able to share some of your new add-ins with the rest of the readers.
