This post is intended to be a learning resource that simply links to external blogs/websites and Youtube channels on the subject of Dynamo.
Note: As of release 1.0 Dynamo has moved to a New Versioning System intending to alleviate the need for Package Authors to continually update when a new version is released.
Note: When following older tutorials, nodes will exist in different forms and/or names but should be relatively logical to search. Dynamo has undergone a an entire rebuild more than once in it's short lifetime. If ever in doubt simply ask on here or the Dynamobim forum.
New Users: Learning Dynamo from the start can be daunting. It uses a lot of coding terminology that is hard to pick up for the first-time user. Luckily, the awesome guys at Mode Lab in collaboration with the Dynamo team have created a primer that is the best one-stop-shop for the new user:
- Dynamo Primer - Start here for an introduction to all things Dynamo
