April Autodesk Platform Services training - Get started with us!

Developer Advocacy and Support Team is coming back this spring to run a new round of Autodesk Platform Services (formerly Forge) Online Bootcamp! 

What is the APS online bootcamp?

Autodesk Platform Services (APS) Online Bootcamp is a hands-on training in the basics of APS development where developer advocates live-code various APS applications and answer your questions as you follow their steps.

The event will take place April 17-20, 2023 (Monday through Thursday).

Who should attend the APS Online Bootcamp? 

If you are just getting started with Autodesk Platform Services or looking to refresh/improve your APS development skills, this event is for you.  

How does it work?

Each day of the event will be dedicated to a specific topic covered by one of the tutorials from the https://tutorials.autodesk.io/ website.

You can attend all 4 days or just choose the topics you are interested in the most. 

For each topic there will be a full-day class in the GMT (UTC+0) time zone and another full-day class in the PST (UTC+8) time zone, so that you can choose the time that works best for you.

Moreover, classes on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday will run in two parallel tracks - one using Node.js, and one using .NET. You can choose the programming language you're most comfortable with:

  • Monday, April 17: Uploading, translating, and previewing your 2D/3D designs
    • 8am-4pm GMT class for Node.js
    • 8am-4pm GMT class for .NET
    • 8am-4pm PST class for Node.js
    • 8am-4pm PST class for .NET
  • Tuesday, April 18: Accessing designs in Fusion Team, BIM 360 Docs, or ACC
    • 8am-4pm GMT class for Node.js
    • 8am-4pm GMT class for .NET
    • 8am-4pm PST class for Node.js

  • Wednesday, April 19: Customizing the viewer, and adding dashboards to your application

Coding prep resources for beginners

Make sure you get the most out of this training by going through some basic learning resources prior to the event (if needed):

Special instructions for Day 2 (Hubs Browser tutorials)

For those of you joining the hubs browser tutorial, please ensure you're able to add integrations in your hubs. To check that, please follow the steps at Provision access in other products (you can close it at the end without adding any app, we'll cover that live).
As you get to this step, you should see two options: BIM 360 Account Administration and Document Management, see below.













If you don't see both options, please email us your hub id so we can enable it ASAP. You can obtain your hub id from Step 6 of the same process.
