Dr. Robert Aish and a team at Autodesk are developing DesignScript for a technology preview later in the year. For now, the core audience for this technology will be fairly limited.
To date there has been a small group of people (architects and designers) that the team has been working with for the past couple of years – who have participated in workshops based on preliminary versions of the technology. The team is now looking to expand that list.
If you are an architect or designer with programming experience, you can sign up. a team member can contact you, and perhaps you can be added to the set of users playing with the early form of the technology. Only serious applicants need apply. When a slot is available, a team member will follow up with prospective users using the email list and gather additional information.
As mentioned, further down the road, a public technology preview, much like other technology previews on Labs, is planned. That may have more relaxed requiremets for programming expertise.
Yelling "pick me, pick me" is alive in the lab.
