On this April Fools day, I am shooting straight and no silly stuff for once in my 10 years of blogging. No offering a 3D printable DVD of Autodesk products like last year, or a hacked blog. This year, I almost went with a post explaining I was finally changing my name “Shaan” to a more standard spelling so people would stop calling me "shan” pronouncing it like “man” instead of Shaan pronounced like “shawn”, but I did not. Scott Sheppard already posted a great internal Autodesk April Fools. Organizational Announcement: Welcome, Everybody, to CEO Staff
Last week Autodesk announced several new Autodesk 2014 products and most want to know how to get them, so here is the latest.
Check out the great video “How to Upgrade your Autodesk Product from the Autodesk Subscription Center” from the @AutodeskHelp team making Twitter so much more helpful and happy by providing Autodesk support on Twitter.
“From logging in to the Subscription Center to downloading, installing and activating your product, our brand new instructional guide will ensure a quick and seamless upgrade transition.
And just in case you have any questions, concerns or issues along the way, we’ll be patiently waiting to assist @Autodesk on Twitter!”
Several of the new 2014 products are currently available for download on the ADN, and product pages like AutoCAD trial download page. I expect the 2014 products to appear soon for download by subscription customers on the Autodesk Subscription website and to students on the Autodesk Student Community which if you are a student or faculty you can get most Autodesk products free for 3 years.
