Welcome to the BILT Academy Podcast!
Our nineteenth episode has been curated by our guest BILT Academy correspondent and previous BILT Academy Podcast guest Mark Wieringa. This month’s podcast is the 2nd in our 4 part series on Open Source, and in this episode, Mark interviews Jon Mirtschin.
The BILT Academy team has started into a busy new year with not only pressing deadlines educationally as well as professionally, but the team is also very busy behind the curtains to shape a program for the BILT Academy Summit. So, Mark who was scheduled to co-pilot this episode with David took the initiative to support the team by taking on the lead on the open-source subject. Which turned out to be quite a journey of insights, vision and core knowledge. Since all interviewees have provided the BILT Academy with elaborate information we’ve decided to dedicate to each interviewee a podcast episode that will be airing within the first half of this year.
For this episode, mark partnered up with a long-time collaborator and inspiring veteran of the open source community, a source of deep knowledge and founder of many open source tools and initiatives. Mr. Jon Mirtschin of Geometry Gym.
Here are this month’s interviewees:
Jon Mirtschin graduated with a double degree Bachelor of Engineering/Science from the University of Melbourne, Australia. He worked as a structural engineer for 10 years before starting Geometry Gym in 2009. Geometry Gym develops BIM software tools specifically for Model Exchange using OpenBIM standards such as IFC. These are primarily in the form of plugins for applications such as Revit, Rhino, Grasshopper, Tekla and various Structural Analysis applications.
