Before we release software, Autodesk has a few customer touchpoints:
- Autodesk Research conducts cutting edge research to transition the impossible to the possible.
- Autodesk Labs conducts technology previews to see if proposed ideas have customer value.
- Autodesk Beta conducts beta testing to determine if software is ready to be released.
With that in mind, I thought you'd like to meet our set of beta coordinators. The beta coordinators set up the projects on the Autodesk Feedback Community site, make software available to be tested, solve issues that prevent project participants for fully exercising the pre-release software, and make sure the feedback gets to the people who need to hear it.
