Parallax Panel Discussion Next Week

For anyone who might be interested, Parallax Team will be participating in a panel discussion next Wednesday, March 24 at 11 PT (2 ET). It is being hosted by two Dynamo user groups- Dynamaniacs of Calgary (DoC) and Dynamaniacs of Edmonton (DoE).

The topic is on the “real” benefits of adopting and using Dynamo and coding within an AEC firm. We plan to talk a bit about FOREground, which is the site/landscape tool set that we have been developing for Revit. (more images and gifs can be found on twitter: https://twitter.com/landarchBIM)
