Get Started in Dynamo, Today. (Dynamo Tutorial and News Inside!)

Over the last week I have been reminiscing about some of the challenges I encountered when starting to learn Dynamo.  Additionally, I took my experience and compared it with what last sessions students of DIY Dynamo said were there biggest challenges when they started to learn Dynamo.

The two major challenges that arose from this analysis were the following:

1. You want to learn Dynamo but don't know where to begin.
2. Finding a real-world problem to solve with Dynamo.

If you are interesting in learning Dynamo and don't know where to begin, don't worry, I was in the exact same place only a few years ago.  But, now your have a place to begin.  \Keep reading to view a free tutorial that will get you started today....

Dynamo Tutorial - Rotate Instance (Manual Selection)

I thought the best way to demonstrate how simple it can be and how to get started writing your first script was to release a small portion of DIY Dynamo for free.

As I have mentioned before, learning Dynamo is a journey.  The hardest part is getting started.  The video tutorial below shows you how you can get started and write your first script in 10 minutes.  10 minutes.  You probably spent more time in line at Starbucks this morning.

So, what do you say.... Is it time to start your Dynamo journey?

DIY Dynamo - Spring Session 2018 (Enroll on Monday!)

Last year, I held the first ever session of my first ever online course for Dynamo called "DIY Dynamo".  We had 74 students enroll and the feedback was incredible.   I will be sharing more testimonials next week, but here is what Tom, a Fall 2017 "graduate" had to say about the course:

"I understood the flow,  inputs and outputs, and I was able to easily adapt the scripts to be applicable to my work..."  - Tom from Texas.

What is it about?

DIY Dynamo was created with the beginner in mind.  As I have mentioned before, I truly believe that getting started and writing your first few scripts is the hardest part.  After your first scripts, you will slowly build your knowledge and solve problems on a need-to-know basis.  Therefore, the goal of DIY Dynamo is to get you over the first and most daunting hurdle: starting. 

When will enrollment open?

Enrollment will open on Monday, April 9th at 8:00 AM (EST).

What will it include?

DIY Dynamo will be a three week online course with three distinct modules.  The modules build on top of one another.  By the end of the third module you will have been exposed to many facets of Dynamo and will feel comfortable enough to start attacking your own problems using Dynamo. 

There is an exercise at the end of each module to enhance your enhance your problem solving abilities and build on the content of that module.  

Additionally, I will be holding a live online "office hour" each week for those enrolled during each "session".  During these live office hours you will be able to ask questions and openly discuss the content from that week's module.

Ultimately, in under 2 hours time you will be more proficient in Dynamo than everyone around your cubicle right now.

Oh, and of course, there will be some bonus content... ;)
