AU Has come and gone again for another year.
With a reported 7,000 attendees it picked up a bit from last years 5,700. Autodesk University still hasn’t reached the pre-recession high of 10,000 people. Interestingly 40,000 people signed up for the Virtual event, up from last years 16,000 people. I can see this becoming an increasingly popular way of accessing the event – maybe YOU should try it next year!
Carl Bass’s theme for the Event was Innovation. He is particularly keen to stress that Autodesk is looking for new ways to use new technology – rather than using new technology to solve old problems.
Here’s some really good reviews from people who were lucky enough to be there!

If you didn’t get to AU this year (Like me!), then the good news is that there is still a lot out there for you. All of the session material is available on the AU website (Free login required) you might even be lucky enough to have an AU Extension event going on near you.
