Hi @mehsan ,

To get started with the Revit API, I suggest that you, first of all, take a look at the step-by-step instructions provided by My First Revit Plugin.

https://knowledge.autodesk.com/support/revit-products/learn-explore/caas/simplecontent/content/my-fi... 

 

To know a lot about API's you can visit the below link

You can also visit Jeremy's blog

If you wish to start with programming from zero, you may want to quickly first learn some fundamentals first:

 

Basic programming in general – take a Python tutorial -- https://duckduckgo.com/?q=python+tutorial
Basic C# and .NET in general – take a C# .NET tutorial -- https://duckduckgo.com/?q=C%23+.NET+tutorial
Basic Revit API interaction – take a Revit macro tutorial -- https://duckduckgo.com/?q=Revit+macro+tutorial

 

All three of those steps can be very quickly and simply achieved and will immensely improve your understanding and simplify things for you if and when you decide to start creating your own full-blown Revit add-in.

For future reference, I summarised all these suggestions and more in The Building Coder:

Good luck and have fun getting started!
