Forge Online Bootcamp: Pre-event for Autodesk University 2022

Come join the Developer Advocacy & Support Team for the next Forge Online Bootcamp that will take place September 13th-16th (Tuesday through Friday) as part of the pre-events for Autodesk University 2022

 

What is the Forge Online Bootcamp?

The Forge Online Bootcamp is a hands-on training in the basics of Forge (Autodesk's cloud based API platform) development where developer advocates live-code various Forge applications and answer your questions as you follow their steps. 

And - participants of the previous Forge Bootcamps - we heard you! This time we are changing the format and focusing on live discussions and answering your questions rather than long coding sessions. 

Who should attend the Forge Online Bootcamp?

The event is recommended for software developers who are getting started with the Autodesk Forge platform or looking to refresh or improve their skills. Since Autodesk Forge is a cloud platform, a basic web development experience (both client- and server-side) is needed, but if you have not done any web development and would still like to join our Bootcamp, don’t worry! You will find a couple of learning resources that will get you ready at the end of this blog post. 

How does the Forge Online Bootcamp work?

Each of the 4 days of the event will be dedicated to implementing a specific type of application. There will be separate tracks for EMEA time zone and AMER time zone, and where applicable, for .NET and Node.js programming languages, giving you 14 tracks to choose from: 

  • Tuesday, September 13th: Uploading, translating, and previewing your 2D/3D designs
    • 8am – 2pm GMT: .NET track for EMEA audience
    • 8am – 2pm GMT: Node.js track for EMEA audience
