Why Build with Autodesk Forge

The Forge Platform makes Design and Engineering data accessible to almost anyone, anytime, anywhere. With simple, standards-based web development, Forge helps developers and companies address tough challenges with cloud solutions. And Forge is more than just cloud-based tools – it’s an innovation community.

Forge DevCon is where the Forge community comes together to learn, get inspired, and share experiences. Join over 1000 technologists, developers, and industry specialists for two days of keynotes, workshops, case studies, labs, and more.

The event is hosted at Autodesk University (AU), the dynamic, industry-shaping event that brings together 10K+ design and engineering professionals. If you are considering Forge DevCon, we strongly encourage you to explore and attend AU as well.
