The Autodesk Forge Community

Autodesk Forge, a cloud developer platform, enables businesses to develop solutions that connect design and engineering data, processes and people. Forge provides software development tools, resources, and a robust community that uses them.

Forge DevCon is where the community comes together to learn about the Forge platform, latest implementations, and ideas for the future.

This year Forge is teaming up with Autodesk University (AU) for a combined learning experience. AU attracts a global community for those who make anything. From design to engineering to media to entertainment. See how design and engineering software is being used by the best in the business.

Autodesk University

One time. One location. Two great conferences. 

Forge DevCon 2017 is paired with Autodesk University (AU) 2017, Autodesk’s flagship learning event. Attendees can purchase a combination pass to both events, or use their Forge DevCon pass to explore the AU exhibit hall.
