Description

Description

Are you an architect, engineer, drafter, technician, Revit software pro, or AutoCAD Civil 3D software guru? Yes! Do you also have a degree in computer science, or extensive experience as a software developer? No! Great, this class is for you. There's a trend in design software, a by-product of the Internet of Things: designers increasingly asked to understand code, and some even needing to write it themselves. But, how do you do that? You start with the fundamentals of programming—don't worry about which language to start in. Worry about learning the general concepts of programming. Worry about learning how to find the information you need. Learn how to teach yourself coding basics. This class will present the basics of any programming language, how to think programmatically, and the basics of developing software. We'll even introduce some tools for development beyond the code itself. You learn the meaning of terms like: loops, strings, variable, globals, API, and extents testing. This session features AutoCAD and AutoCAD Civil 3D. AIA Approved

Luke Perkins

My name is Luke Perkins. I am currently an EIT in Raleigh North Carolina and work at Stewart, a regional multidisciplinary design firm. I work in the Department of Land Planning and Design as a Civil Engineer focused on land development with a concentration in site 3D modeling and Stormwater Design. I graduated from North Carolina State University in 2014 as a Park Scholar, General (ret) Hugh Shelton National Leadership Scholar, and University Ambassador. Since graduating I have worked on some of Raleigh’s most transformative projects in the downtown area and surrounding universities. During these projects I have evolved our team by fully utilizing the capabilities of the Autodesk Infrastructure Design Suite, and I have become a catalyst for 3D design and modeling land development projects Stewart.
