The scene of construction technology is changing everyday and the separation can be seen all around us. In the Autodesk BIM 360 Hackathon, Autodesk help the users to get a good start with new technologies for addressing the opportunities across the building and infrastructure lifecycle.
Autodesk has proudly announced about the Autodesk® App Store BIM 360 Hackathon which is a virtual and web based development. It is a nice way for quickly climbing the BIM 360+ Forge API integration learning curve with the Autodesk engineers virtually. There are some new features in the BIM 360 and it is a wonderful time for starting work on integration and to create the folders in BIM 360 using Forge. Anyone can now easily and quickly build a “presence” for his/her company and the data of apps within the use of BIM 360. The usefulness of it is described here.
The Autodesk® App Store BIM 360 Hackathon has two divisions:
- A series of web training sessions which are related to the Autodesk Forge platform and BIM and available for everyone who is interested in learning about these APIs.
- There is an online hackathon where developers can develop new apps which integrate with BIM 360 for the submission to Autodesk App Store. Reason for participating: The Hackathon will be work as a helpful hand for the users to get manual with the Autodesk cloud service BIM 360 which is built on the Autodesk Forge platform. There is the Autodesk Forge API for developing apps that will help in the construction management and enabling access to project data for all time, everywhere within the building construction lifecycle. Autodesk Forge is mainly the developer platform which is used by Autodesk for creating software for design, engineering, construction and manufacturing.
Participating in the online hackathon the participant would get a reward but there is a cost price. At first the participant has to create an app that will go with BIM 360 and then it had to submit in the App Store. The other reason of participating in BIM 360 is that there is going to be launched a BIM 360 app “Showcase” in the Autodesk App Store.
Autodesk App Store: By publishing the creative apps in the Autodesk App Store, and user could get fast access to the Autodesk customers who might be looking for the benefit from the solution. The Autodesk App Store is the best online source for millions of Autodesk customers for browsing and downloading or purchasing their needed apps.
Autodesk: Autodesk is for them loves creation and make creative things. Behind a high-performance car, an admired towering skyscraper, a smart phone or a great film there are chances to appreciate the works of the millions of the Autodesk customers as it gives the power to make anything.
