Actually, I wish that were true. I’m planning on taking some time off in October, but that seems a long way off, at this stage.
What I’ve actually been doing is working with some REST-based APIs: firstly, I’ve been finishing up work on September’s Plugin of the Month, TransTips for AutoCAD, Revit, Inventor, & 3ds Max (to be posted on Autodesk Labs in the next few days). TransTips makes use of the REST API for Bing Translator, to automatically translate tooltips in various products.
Secondly, perhaps more excitingly, I’ve been coding against a possible future web service API for Project Photofly. Formulating all sorts of REST calls to create photo scenes, upload images, process the scenes and get the resulting point clouds and meshes in various formats. All tied together with a fancy WPF user interface and plenty of asynchrony to keep the application responsive.
Lots of fun, but not yet ready for posting to this blog, unfortunately.
Anyway, I should be getting back to normal service soon, I hope (starting tomorrow, with any luck).
