Cloning with DIESEL and AJaX
Novo Nordisk hosts AutoCAD Developer Conference

Novo Nordisk, a world leader in insulin and diabetes care, opened its premises in Copenhagen/Denmark to host the 17th international conference on AutoCAD application development. Developers from 10 European countries attended the technical conference organized by the AutoCAD Developers Group Europe (ADGE).
Main topics in the AutoCAD world today are ObjectARX applications creating and linking intelligent objects to form real-world models. Amongst the most complicated themes in this context is the duplication of intelligence between different drawings, the so-called cloning. Various speeches concentrated on this critical topic.
In addition the two days allowed the software engineers to exchange ideas and to discuss newest technology like Java or ActiveX Controls to be used in AutoCAD add-ons. And in addition to these future trends, also today's present was covered in detail: application development in LISP or DIESEL.
ADGE publishes a conference CD-ROM containing all speeches as well as additional documents and sample code. To order this CD-ROM, contact the ADGE office at
