"It took me by surprise I must say, when I found out yesterday.
Don't you know that I heard it through the grapevine."
— Marvin Gaye
The general session presentation on main stage at Autodesk University 2012 highlighted a cornucopia of technologies that you can use to leverage the cloud/mobile/social world in which designs are developed. One of these technologies was Project Grapevine.
Project Grapevine is a new approach to forums, built on the idea that you can tap into your community to solve design and engineering problems using visual tools. Project Grapevine builds your network to become a valuable resource for learning and connecting with engineering professionals within your enterprise or outside.
The browser requirements for Project Grapevine include:
- Google Chrome 20 or higher
- Firefox 11 or higher
- Internet Explorer 10 or higher

The goal of any technology preview is to twofold:
- Find out if Autodesk should spend any more time and money on a technology.
- Allow customer feedback to shape how the technology is put into practice.
You can make you thoughts on these two objectives known in a variety of ways:
