Pollination Apps


Full Day

In Person Workshop

Pollination Apps

In the first section of the workshop, we will design, build and deploy a Pollination App (https://app.pollination.cloud/apps) from scratch. Closer to the end of the workshop, we will modify the app to become a Rhino and Revit plugin. By the end of this workshop, you should be able to start writing your custom app, deploy it to Pollination and share it with your colleagues or publicly on the web. Basic knowledge of scripting in Python is required.
