How Can I Get Started With Dynamo?

One of the biggest challenges for many long-time Revit users is that initial 'starting point' of getting into Dynamo. It takes a bit of time and effort to make that transition...

Happily, as with Revit, the community is the key. The community is full of people who are providing free packages, definitions, and code, and free advice to new users. But where can we find all of this info? Check out this post on Kyle Martin's blog. He gives some great tips on how to integrate Dynamo learning into your daily work.

Here are a couple of comments I enjoyed:
  • been using Dynamo for less than a year with no prior visual programming experience and it has made a significant impact on the way I approach production
  • Dynamo adds an additional layer of control to overcome Revit limitations by providing the capability to gather and restructure information and elements in the model, thus creating the potential for repetitive task automation

I added some of the feeds he mentioned to my super aggregator feed at:

I have also reproduced some of his links here:
... the tutorials on the Learn page of 

the Dynamo website
the Primer 
the Dynamo Blog
The Dynamo Community Forum ...

 ... there are many blogs produced by pure Dynamo enthusiasts that have helped me in my journey. I highly recommend that you check them out if you are looking for answers or inspiration:
