What is a Forge Accelerator?

A Forge Accelerator is a week-long opportunity for developers to work intensively on a chosen project with help, support, and training directly from Autodesk's Forge team.

Attend an Accelerator to network with industry experts and peers, exchange ideas, and build your proof-of-concept.

Is the Forge Accelerator right for you?

Who should attend: creative developers who want to spend supported time working on Forge projects.

What to expect: advance your Forge application with distraction free, immersive, 1-on-1 support and training from experts. Most leave with a working proof of concept.

How much does it cost: there are no fees to register or attend a Forge accelerator. Participants are responsible only for their travel, food, and accommodations.


The week at a glance

Kick off the week with intros, overviews, and updates from Forge experts. Then roll up your sleeves and code. Forge engineering team members are on hand to troubleshoot and guide you through project issues and challenges. At the close of the event, you'll get to present your prototype to the Forge experts and other attendees.

In addition, you can take advantage of:

  • Autodesk product and development team expertise
  • A focus on important aspects of cloud development
  • Exchanging ideas with developers and industry peers
  • Fun outings like dinner, sporting events, tours, etc.

See what people are saying

"The Accelerator is a really good experience. We came with a laundry list of things a few specific problems we were trying to solve. And having the team say 'you know that IS hard, let's solve it together' was great."

— Ben Burris, CTO, Grit Virtual

"I would definitely recommend the Accelerator. It was actually a blessing for us to be here. Free help for us to get going, which is unusual. It probably pushed us a lot farther than we could have back at the office."

— Adam Keating, Colab Software
