A parade of Autodesk leaders and talent set the tone for the rest of the week.
Keywords on the expanding twitter stream include Cloud, Security, Internet, Collaboration, 360, Connectivity, 3D Printing… and as Carl Bass says… “All of this is real and available to you today.”
After the Keynote was a series of presentations lasting through the entire day:
· 10:30 AM – 12:00 PM: The Reality of the Cloud
· 1:30 PM – 3:00 PM: The Future of Making Stuff
· 3:30 PM – 5:00 PM: Everyone is a Designer
· 5:30 PM – 7:00 PM: The Future of Design: How the Masters Create in 2025
Obviously there is a stream of good news coming for design professionals.
After a full day of learning the exhibit hall opened. It was jammed full of attendees almost shoulder to shoulder in some areas. Vendor demos, conversations, greeting old friends. It was a positive environment.
