Forge and AppStore Online Hackathon Webinars

For the fourth year in a row, we are hosting an online hackathon.

In fact, it already started: the Autodesk App Store Forge and Fusion 360 Hackathon is running from September 1 until October 31.

This time, the focus is on building apps using Forge APIs and Fusion 360 and extending the Forge ecosystem.

Forge is a development platform – a set of cloud services that connects design, engineering, visualization, collaboration, production and operations workflows for all domains, including:

At this early stage of Forge, many people may be interested in learning more about the Forge APIs with no obligation to publish an app; you are more than welcome to attend the free API webinars:

By the way, you can win a $500 reward building and submitting your app during this hackathon.

Keep calm and hack

Hackathon and Webinar Details

Are you thinking about developing on Autodesk Forge or Fusion 360?

Are you just interested in learning more about these technologies and what they can do to help your business and your career?

Join us for our upcoming free online hackathon and webinars.

This is our fourth online hackathon and you are welcome to participate in all or any part of it.

The Autodesk App Store Forge and Fusion 360 Hackathon is an online event which consists of two segments:

We know that learning and implementing something new takes time and often gets put off, so we’ve designed this event to give you the support you need – as well as a financial incentive – to motivate you to learn the APIs and publish your app on the Forge platform or on Fusion 360 in the Autodesk App Store.

The training webinars help familiarize you with the Forge platform, and the open Q&A sessions provide the opportunity to receive help in real-time from the Autodesk team answering your questions to help you develop your app.

Webinars will be recorded so that you can view them at your convenience.

Autodesk Forge experts are at hand to help all along.

For all new apps submitted to the Autodesk App Store by midnight on October 31, 2016 and accepted for publication in the store by November 30, 2016, each entrant of the Hackathon will receive US$ 500 for one eligible app per entrant.
