My First Plug-in Training
Are you an Autodesk power user with an interest in becoming even more productive? Would you like to automate or extend the capabilities of your Autodesk software, but are new to computer programming? If so, then these guides are designed for you.
“My First Plug-in” series are self-paced tutorial guides for a smooth introduction into the programming world. They are “one-stop shop” learning paths for users who know Autodesk products but are absolutely new to programming and are thinking about taking the plunge.
There are many resources available on the web for you to learn about the Autodesk API's (Application Programming Interface), however, these resources tend to be designed for people who already know programming. This guide is different: it assumes no previous programming knowledge and yet helps you build your first plug-in quickly, without swamping you with details. You’ll have a working application within an hour of starting this material, irrespective of your current level of programming expertise.
