Smits speaking on software development best practices at Advancing Computational Building Design

Feb 6, 2024

CRB’s Justin Smits will speak at the 7th annual Advancing Computational Building Design conference in Dallas. During the three-day event, February 21-23, designers, engineers and contractors will discuss real-world applications of generative and parametric design and how they are transforming design quality.

Smits will speak on Building Revit Add-Ins the Right Way: Software Development Best Practices on Thursday, February 22 at 11:30 am CST. The presentation will cover:

  • The advantages and challenges in developing custom Revit add-ins and how to leverage software development best-practices to build robust and scalable tools.
  • The limitations of custom development, working with the Revit API, and manual testing of Revit add-ins.
  • How automated testing supports maintainable and reliable tool development.
  • How proper interfaces and mocks can streamline the testing and development of Revit add-ins.
