Thanks to everyone who took the time to take the survey. Here are the results.
As expected, most people are in favor of open source. A lot of people said they would contribute, and the numbers are good when you total it up. As I stated before, Autodesk doesn’t have a good policy for this sort of thing, so nothing is certain. But, this survey gives me enough to put together a proposal. Thanks again.
Total time for developing apps (hours/month): 33
From the comments section:
Would we be able to contribute our own apps/utilities ? Or will it be purely tools created by yourself ?
[Doug] No. Since the Autodesk policy is vague, I’m going to stick to the safe answer. Maybe down the road, this can change.
Of course, if you get stuck there are various ways you can get help, such as ADN or the Vault Customization discussion group.
