On Friday I went ahead and submitted my one and only class proposal for the all-digital Autodesk University 2021. Let’s hope it gets selected.
In case you’re interested, here’s the content of the proposal:
Title: Dasher and Hyperion: using Data Visualization in a Forge viewer application
Class ID: SD500020
