Back in May I pre-announced a couple of webinars that I thought to be of interest to readers of this blog. The first was about ReCap, the second was about posting apps to Autodesk Exchange.
The ReCap webinar was actually the beginning of series: at the time of writing five have now taken place (recordings are available for the first four) and two are remaining. Tomorrow’s webinar on “Capturing 3D reality data by flying a camera on a UAV” looks very interesting: after eventually managing to catch up with the edX class I signed up for on “navigation for autonomous flying robots”, this is an area I’m especially interested in. I’m actually hoping to automate the navigation piece of capturing a house with a UAV, but we’ll see how far I get with that. :-)
The Autodesk Exchange webinar has been posted to YouTube, but here it is, in case you’d rather watch it in-place:
Jeremy points out some important takeaways from the presentation on his blog.
A few tidbits that I feel are really worth emphasizing are that you can now make use of an online entitlement API to help secure your application. This is a key piece of capability that we often get asked about, and it’s great to know that there’s now something official in place.
It’s also worth noting the ability to set up a listener for when people pay for your app via PayPal. Hopefully it comes with a handy “ker-ching!” sound (just kidding ;-).
For more information on these, I do suggest watching the recording and checking out the more complete information Jeremy has posted.
