As mentioned, last week, I’m going to be hanging out in the AutoCAD .NET forum for the next few hours. I’ll try to do a little live blogging here… so check back often. And remember to join me in the Google Hangout!
15:10 CEST / 6:10 PDT
Sitting here with at Autodesk Neuchatel with Celine and Camilo (aka ^CEL and ^CAM from AutodeskHelp), waiting for the questions to come in.
16:50 CEST / 7:50 PDT
Well, the Hangout was interesting. On the one hand, I didn’t realise you had to enable Q&A before launching the “Hangout On Air”, but on the other hand, noone else joined so it didn’t really matter. Silver linings and all that. I stayed in the call for 15 minutes before I managed to terminate it (with a view to relaunching with Q&A enabled, which turned out not to be possible).
The recording is on YouTube, but as it’s basically of me talking to myself and looking confused, I’ve made it private. It’s funny enough, just not very useful.
Hopefully I’ll work out how to make better use of Hangouts before trying another one. If people are still motivated to join one of these, please do say so: I’m definitely not against getting together and chatting about API-related topics, but it’s less fun when you’re on your own, I must say.
Anyway, in the meantime, I’ve answered my first question.

My shift is supposedly over, at this stage, but it started slowly and there are more questions coming in. Here’s one regarding the entitlement API. This is actually more fun than I expected!
19:30 CEST / 10:30 PDT
OK, that’s it for this Answer Day. It was an interesting experience. I ended up answering four or five questions (with some iterations), two of which were accepted as solutions. I even received a kudo, which felt nice.
From what I can tell, most questions were answered across the various products – hopefully you had a good experience if you asked anything!
