The outbreak is spreading. I wrote a post a few weeks ago that featured the then four Dynamo User Groups that I knew of. Now suddenly there are a lot more, and there is probably one near you.

If you have had trouble keeping track of what is going on where, you are not alone. In this post, I mean to collect a lot of information about these communities of practice around the globe, both those forming and those formed, that are focused on Dynamo and computational design. This stuff is hot!

As I said before, I marvel at how differently each group was formed, how each has developed its own character, and how fast the global community is growing. As a longtime Dynamo user (and member of the development team), I admit that it is also tremendously fulfilling to see that our work is helping to make people’s lives better.

So here’s what’s up. (And where’s the next one?!)

Other Communities

Dynamo, like Autodesk Revit, has been localized to 12 languages in addition to English (blog post here). And there are some language-specific Dynamo communities too.

Chinese Language

French Language

  • The Paris Revit User Group, which features Dynamo content at every meeting, and where Dynamo resources en français are starting to be collected.

German Language

Japanese Language

Russian Language

 

Finally, no list of user groups would be complete without:

 

image5 The Bad Monkeys. They’re an infamous group of early adopters and power-users. They’re an exclusive, invitation-only bunch, at least one of whom has more likely than not answered your question on the forum. And they have a logo. (More here.)
