The web has revolutionized human communications as we know it. Twitter, WeChat, Snapchat, Instagram, and LinkedIn have changed the way we connect both personally and professionally. The traditional newspaper, movie, and music business models have been accelerated and democratized by cloud & mobile. Can the web model of business have a similar effect on the way the AEC industry handles drawings and models?
Over recent years Autodesk has been seeking to answer that question. Autodesk has been migrating many of its flagship products to the cloud. Autodesk’s latest offering – Forge, gives consumers the ability to build their own cloud apps on top of existing project data that sit on the cloud.
On September 21, shanghaiBIM has invited Xiadong Liang to talk about the Forge Platform. Xiaodong is a successful developer and a leading member of the worldwide team of API gurus providing technical services through the Autodesk Developer Network. He supports various products APIs such as Autodesk® Inventor®, Autodesk® Navisworks®, AutoCAD®, and AutoCAD Mechanical®.
