Hi there! I'm Michael Kilkelly. I’m an architect, not a professional computer programmer. Learning to program has directly improved my quality of life. Since I can now automate tasks, I'm no longer staying up late doing tedious work in Revit. This has helped me produce better results in less time. If I can learn to program, so can you. Let me show you how!
