CS223617 - A Tinkerer's Experience Getting Off the Ground with Forge

Session Description

The potential of Forge is of great interest to a large number of technically skilled professionals who happen to be programming novices—let’s call them “tinkerers.” But what does it take for a tinkerer to get going in the Forge platform? How far can a programming novice realistically expect to get? Are there ways to jump-start and use Forge to help you learn programming? We'll we’re about to find out! Join the speaker’s journey as a tinkerer stepping into Forge with a time commitment of half a day per week for the next 6 months in an effort to up basic programming capabilities while hopefully creating a compelling proof of concept to demonstrate Forge software’s value in bringing information and 3D content together for the construction teams the speaker works with. If you’re tired of sitting on the sidelines of Forge waiting for a programmer to help you out, this might be the class for you.

Session Speakers
  • Benjamin Bringardner - Kansas, Black & Veatch

    Ben Bringardner has been working with construction teams to push the boundaries of what is possible with technology on some of the world's largest projects, ranging from Medupi Power Station ($14-plus billion; 4,800 megawatt coal plant in South Africa) to the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (2,000,000-square foot renovation; $2 billion). Despite a natural passion for exploring the future of technology in construction, Bringardner’s recent focus has been on making the rubber hit the road in the field, implementing real solutions. In his current role with Black & Veatch, he has invested himself in helping engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) infrastructure construction teams get more value from mobile tools, laser scanning, and virtual design and construction, with a special focus on advanced work packaging.
