National Association of Realtors is contributing to the blockchain revolution

Summary from Podcast website:

“Dave Conroy research & development Lab Engineer at National Association of Realtors. He frequently educates about how Blockchain and Distributed Ledger Technologies, Prototyping, Software Design, Management, and Networking can integrate with Real Estate. He believes that Real Estate / Finance & Supply Chain are the most viable markets for a blockchain and If you are part of any association, pay attention to how the NAR is leading the way by eating their own dog food testing out how to build better credibility and reputation tracking in their internal network. Dave is really passions and excited about what is to come in the coming months with this tech in CRE.”

5) Video – From the Danimo YouTube Channel

Dynamo View Extension Demo

Summary from YouTube Channel:

“This is a demo of a basic View Extension for Dynamo which allows some simple operations like controlling the Package Manager locations via a txt file, add a new menu item to menu bar, update group colours if group name starts with some string and also to force the template file (e.g. company template) to the top of the recent items list after closing Dynamo so it’s easy to access.”


6) Podcast – From The ConTechCrew – This week The ConTechCrew was busy with a regular episode, as well as 7 episodes (interview only) from the MCAA Conference 2018.

8) Video – From Sean Fruin YouTube Channel.

Dynamo Tetris

Summary from YouTube Channel:

“How cool is this?! Tetris programmed and running in Dynamo. I think the AEC industry could learn a lot from the Gaming industry. One the physic engines in games and two the rendering capabilities. It all comes down to coding and this is a perfect example. I found this on Legantmar YouTube. Check them out! They have a lot more fun and practical Dynamo videos!!”

Until next week,
