Free Webinar – Introducing the new Autodesk View and Data API
We already held a webinar on the new Autodesk View and Data API in September.
Here are the old description and full details of that, and, for the first time, we proudly present the detailed notes of the September presentations by Stephen Preston and Cyrille Fauvel.
In case you missed it, another chance is coming up again soon: the next free webinar Introducing the new Autodesk View and Data API will be held on Thursday October 23rd, 2014.
Free Autodesk Software for All Students Everywhere
Autodesk now provides free software for students, teachers, and schools around the world.
Inspiring creativity and a love for science, engineering, and math in young students is more important today than ever. So I'm very happy to announce that Autodesk has opened up FREE access to its desktop software to ALL students, teachers, and schools everywhere in the world.
In the past, access was free in some countries, but not others. Today there are no restrictions. However, all too often students and teachers are unaware that they can have their own copy and use our software in their classroom for free. The simplest way to help a student or teacher is to direct them to students.autodesk.com where they can download as much as they want and find curriculum and learning materials.
