Yesterday Autodesk celebrated its 35th birthday and employees, partners, and customers joined in to mark the occasion. From Portland, San Francisco, Manchester, Boston, Toronto, Moscow, Neuchâtel, and many other locations and remote offices there were employees in old Autodesk memorabilia and cakes. It was a lot of fun seeing all the nostalgia and stories in Twitter, Facebook, and other social media as well as in person.
In the Lake Oswego Oregon office which is in a suburb of Portland, we had cake and I flew a drone outside the office to capture a photo from outside of the employees in their memorabilia on the inside. It was a lot of fun and I got to wear my AutoCAD R14 tee-shirt again.
To top it off even the New York financial powerhouse NASDAQ wished Autodesk a happy 35th anniversary.
Thank you everyone for participating. Without the outstanding customers, awesome employers, incredible partners, Autodesk would not be what it is today or perhaps even be here.
There will be other 35 year milestones throughout 2017 including the 35th birthday of AutoCAD in December. Stay tuned for more fun and nostalgia looking back and then looking forward to imagining, designing and creating a better world together.
