Autodesk is holding its first Autodesk Forge Accelerator from March 14-18, 2016 in San Francisco. I say it’s the first, but it’s really a rebranding of the Autodesk Cloud Accelerators that were held earlier this year to have the same moniker as the recently announced developer platform, fund and conference.
The “call for proposals” started just before the holiday break, and will remain open until January 31, 2016. So there are just over 3 weeks left to submit your sub-2,000 word proposal on how you intend to use an Autodesk web-service API during the accelerator. These currently include View & Data, AutoCAD I/O, Fusion 360, BIM 360 and ReCap 360 APIs.
If your proposal gets accepted, Autodesk will cover your accommodation costs for the duration of the event. It’ll be up to you to cover travel and other living costs.
I don’t know whether I’ll be attending this one – I’ll be in Munich in a couple of weeks for the one there, however. They’re definitely very worthwhile events!
