Bricsys will present a full technical overview of the current status of its DWG-related APIs (application development interfaces), and will provide a strategic roadmap for the platform. In addition, Bricsys will provide information on how to join its community for marketing and selling Bricscad-based applications.
A select group of guest speakers will present a number of unique topics, each a specialist in their domain. Testimonials will be given by application developers on how they effortlessly ported their applications from other CAD systems to Bricscad. Several international corporations will describe how they successfully implemented Bricscad into their whole organization as their primary CAD platform.
Starting today, interested application developers can sign up for the two-day conference at www.bricsys.com/conference, where they will also find an outline of the agenda.
Bricscad is the number one alternative CAD platform for the DWG file format. In September 2008 Bricsys announced that it had accomplished its task of developing a complete set of APIs. The goal of the initiative was to offer application developers a choice of CAD platforms without the hassle of modifying source code. Best of all, there is no cost to application developers choosing Bricscad as their development platform: Bricsys charges no membership fee, nor does it charge for developers’ licenses of the software.
“Our unique approach has launched a flood of applications from developers who want their software running on a second, alternative platform while maintaining a single source code stream,” said Erik De Keyser, CEO of Bricsys. “Just eighteen months after our first announcement, I am delighted to report that more than 430 application developers made the decision to go with the BDC Program (Bricscad Developer Community Program). Today, we have more than 120 applications listed in our catalogue and ready for use by Bricscad customers. This remarkable success exceeded any of our expectations.”
