Got data? What codes in Vegas doesn't stay in Vegas!
Let's say you've been an Autodesk customer for a long time. You've got decades of your intellectual property captured in AutoCAD drawings. If you'd like to leverage that data to showcase your work to your customers, then Autodesk Forge is for you. Forge is our application program interface (API) platform and supporting materials (sample code, manuals) as well as a community of developers who uses those APIs. Although Forge is intended for our customers and 3rd party developers to be able to use our web services, we use Forge for our development of the cloud-based services that we offer. You can leverage Forge in the same ways that we do.
The Autodesk Forge Developer Conference (Forge DevCon) is the largest gathering of design and engineering software developers in the world. Once again this year, we are partnering with Autodesk University (AU). No longer do you need to choose between DevCon and AU. You can do both. New this year, Forge DevCon and Connect & Construct have come together. Now you can take advantage of more classes than ever before. Register once and choose from a broad selection of keynotes, workshops, and classes. Connect & Construct attracts thought leaders with real-world experience in construction, technology, and the digital economy. This is the event to connect with the BIM 360 team and industry leaders to learn about setting your business apart.

This year's event is not to be missed. Don't just take my word for it:
Software Architect, Kean Walmsley had this to say:
"I’m co-track-lead with my old friend [and fellow Autodesk developer] Cyrille Fauvel for the Complementary Technologies track, which incorporates topics such as AR/VR, AI, and robotics. All the really fun stuff, basically. This year there are 35 or so classes scheduled for the 2 days of the DevCon, of which 4 sessions belong to the “Comp Tech” track. If you want to get a sense of really cool stuff that people are doing with Forge (and beyond!) you should attend these 4 classes. They blend cutting-edge R&D with advanced use of Forge to do some really cool things."

Forge Senior Manager for Business Development, Stephen Preston, followed that up with:
"The 'Forge Basics' track is intended to cover general Forge topics: from helping people who are just getting started with Forge to demonstrating advanced Forge usage tips and techniques. Looking at the Forge DevCon class roster as a whole (Monday classes, Tuesday classes), the division between our different 'tracks' is extremely blurred — nearly every class could arguably feature in more than one of our tracks."
