9:00 - 10:00       Introduction to Shotgun Development

An introduction to Shotgun development and the various APIs and integrations that are available. 

What will attendees know after this session?
- Which technology is right for a given production scenario
- How to query/find data using Shotgun's filter syntax
- How to use the Shotgun Python, REST APIs, Action Menu Items, and Event Daemon



10:30 - 12:00     Toolkit Administration

Learn how to take over Shotgun integrations and make them do what you want. Out of the box Shotgun integrations with products like Maya, Nuke, Houdini, and Photoshop allow for basic software launching and file sharing, but their true power is unleashed once you take control of the configuration and provide a custom directory structure and hooks to automate more of the data flow in your studio. 

What will attendees know after this session?
- How Shotgun Desktop works and what is available via the basic pipeline integrations
- How to take over a configuration and customize app UIs and configuration settings 
- How to take over and customize hooks and actions



1:30 - 3:00         Advanced Shotgun Development

Learn how to control how Shotgun integrations behave and harness the power of the Toolkit platform to make building a pipeline easier. 

What will attendees know after this session?
- How to develop, package up, and distribute Toolkit configurations to a remote user base
- How to develop and distribute custom Toolkit apps 
- How to leverage the standard Toolkit frameworks for UI and data management
- What the Autodesk Forge ecosystem is and how it can be used with Shotgun



3:30 - 4:30         Shotgun Ecosystem User Group

Join us to hear about recent developments and upcoming plans. We also want to hear what your top priorities are, what we should fix, and what features you’d like to see to make Shotgun a more useful platform to build on.



 See you in Vancouver!
