Speckle is a distributed, schema agnostic, data rich design data exchange and collaboration platform and protocol that evolved out of Dimitrie’s research on the woes of communication & interoperability that AEC is plagued with. This talk will center around both the technical aspects involved but as well the implications of rearing up an open source community that can sustainably develop a core platform for AEC.
Dimitrie is Marie Curie Fellow (ESR) at The Bartlett UCL, where he is creating open source tools and protocols for integrative design communication in the AEC industries. His current efforts revolve around speckle.works, an open source (MIT) initiative for developing an extensible AEC data communication protocol and platform. Find him on twitter or linkedin.
