PS: Thank you all for the kind comments and emails for the Ladybug workshop. We recorded the workshop and are in the process of figuring out how to share it with the public. I will send an update once it is uploaded.

Hi, I am looking forward …so this time is 3pm-10pm Germany time.

Hi Mostapha,

Looking forward to the workshop! I missed the Ladybug workshop unfortunately but will be keeping an eye on this page for when it is uploaded.

Thanks Michal for showing the timezones - it’s worth noting though for anyone in the UK that we’re now in summer time, so it starts at 2pm for us, not 1pm.


about those guys in Iran :slight_smile:


Thanks Mostapha
That was great…i enjoy and learned a lot …
the last discussion was great and awesome …and at the end my face was weird too :slight_smile:

Thank you very much for that great workshop - I learned a lot from it and got also a lot more curious about the bee and the bug.

Hopefully there will be another workshop some time again - would love to join you again =)

Thank you



This was great and very ‘full’ workshop I guess we will process all information for days or maybe weeks …great work!

Thank you all for the nice comments! I hope to be able to do more of this, and also capture some short tutorials.


Hi Mostafa,

Did you upload a tutorial or a workshop for this animation?

I made an automated blinds in my research using Grasshopper, honeybee and ladybug, and I can get the daylight analysis for every hour separately.

But how to run an annual analysis while using an automated blinds? which responding parametrically with the sun movement, however, I saw the tutorial of Annual Daylight Simulation but I’m little confused.
