I’m once again thankful to be going to Autodesk University this year. I’m always impressed by how much I learn. Officially, my job is to teach the Vault API and represent Autodesk. But I always come back with new perspectives and new ideas. For example, the vLogic and DECO apps were a direct result from my experiences at AU 2011. Registration is open now, so I hope to see you there.
For those interested in the Vault API, there 4 classes that you may be interested in.
CP1962 - Programming Custom Objects with the Autodesk® Vault API
In this class, I will focus on custom objects and how to program them through the API. Come hungry, because this class is 100% meat.
CP1963 - Programming Integrations Between Autodesk® Vault and Other Systems
I’ll be going over various patterns for integrating Vault with other systems. The SharePoint 2010 and PLM 360 integrations will be used as case studies.
CP1970 - Empower Users with Custom Autodesk® Vault Explorer Extensions
Dan Leighton has a gift for explaining complex topics in a simple way. If it’s anything like his Vault class from last year, you can expect emphasis on real-world solutions to real-world problems.
CP2641 - PDF, Email Notification, Print, and More with Autodesk® Vault Job Processor via powerJobs
My friends from coolOrange will be showing off their awesome powerJobs application. Although powerJobs provides functionailty out-of-the-box it’s also highly configurable, allowing you to hook to the Vault API thorough PowerShell.
