This is it.
This is the week.
Yes, Autodesk University 2020 is finally here. From November 17th to the 20th.
Here’s a quick cheat sheet to guide you through all the great sessions available this week.
First of all, you ought to get familiar with the agenda. Here’s a quick “don’t want to miss” keynotes:
November 17th – General Session
November 17th – Design & Manufacturing Keynote
November 17th – Forge Keynote
Then, if it’s not already done, browse the list of all available classes.
This year is a bit special – the good special – because all AU classes will be on demand. Click and watch the classes that you want when you want. The live parts are Q&A sessions. You watch the classes and, later on, log-in to ask your questions.
Very simple and very useful.
With that in mind, here’s another list of great classes and their scheduled Q&A:
November 18th – Inventor Sketching: Beyond the Basics

I can hear you say, “Keynotes, yep, that’s cool.”, and “Classes, got it, that’s why we registered for AU”, but do you know that AU is a lot more than that?
We have our notorious Answer Bar where you can meet experts and ask them questions (1-on-1).
We also have MeetUps. Here’s one that could be very interesting for you:
This is the Autodesk University version of our monthly community meetups for mechanical designers and engineers. Throughout the year we covered topics from 2D design to complex simulation and manufacturing and AU is a great opportunity to get together, recap the year and discuss different ways to learn, grow in your role and engage with Autodesk and its community. Let’s celebrate engineering together, hear from Autodesk Inventor and Industry Strategy teams, and talk about big topics like design automation! Here is the outline of the topics we will discuss together:
* Year in review: a reflection about remote work during COVID, technology updates, learning content
* Key skills going forward: a collaborative approach to engineering, automation, design for manufacturing, generative design
* What’s coming next? Review of the public roadmap.
* Community and Learning resources.
