Design Automation for Revit

Update 11/5/2019: Design Automation for Revit is official now! Released on October 28, 2019. 

I’m putting together a list of available materials to learn Design Automation for Revit (DA4R for short) here for easy access. I intend to update this page as more information become available.

To use DA4R, you will need to know both worlds: Revit addin as desktop development, and Forge and/or Web programming. If you are new to Revit add-in development and interested in learning, please refer to this page:

The reference on this page focuses about running your add-in on the cloud.
