First Madrid Dynamo User Group Meeting

MDUG Madrid Dynamo User Group

Every day there are and more Dynamo users across the globe. Dynamo User Group groups have emerged in cities such as Boston, Chicago, San Francisco, Copenhagen, Singapore or Tokyo. 2017 is the year in which the Madrid Dynamo User Group has finally been formed. It has arisen from the users’ concern to share knowledge and experiences to automate processes with the use of this tool.
Modelical is proud to have hosted this first reunion and we can say that it has been a success at all levels: in content, number of attendees and in the constitution of the leading group team.
At first we limited the attendance to 28 people and when we realized of the huge interested audience who wanted to join, we managed to find a larger room and we could gather more than 60 users.

Francisco Javier, BIM Specialist at BOD, gave a speech titled From generative design to data analysis processes. He explained how Dynamo has helped them developing complex project designs and lead them to massive analysis of valuable data contained in their models.

Luis Javier, BIM Specialist in AECOM, in his speech called: Dynamo for everyone, differentiated three levels of complexity a certain task can pass through while its application in automated Dynamo routines. The complexity goes from a basic use with Built In nodes and packages to custom nodes and basic python, and it reached to an advanced level of Pyhton where complex scripting, classes, functions and libraries are applied in Python. Have you used NoSQL databases already? Luis Javier can speak a lot and, in fact, he told us all about its wonders.
