I have been in the Autodesk San Francisco office this week and got to attend the Autodesk Media Summit 2012 where press and bloggers from around the world came to see what Autodesk was launching in our 2013 products and solutions.
It was a very busy event with Autodesk executives and product managers presenting and taking questions. I am sure many articles and blog posts from attendees will start to appear when they get back to their offices and their heads stop spinning. The Autodesk PR team did an amazing job on the event. As always it was great seeing so many familiar faces and meeting new ones.
You can now view some of the presentations on YouTube:
