    Is your organization using BIM (Building Information Modeling) but still stuck consuming and developing desktop-based apps and unsure of how to make the move to the cloud? This class will guide you through the journey of more than three years of challenges, changing the mindset from developing single-user desktop-based BIM solutions to a more collaborative and inclusive cloud-based environment. Learn how our team overcame difficult decisions, and how Forge empowered our business to develop feature-rich apps with less effort. We will go beyond tutorials and getting-started guides to explore how you and your team can take similar steps and build a pathway to port your existing solutions to run off-premises, just like Autodesk did. We will take a tour of several Forge APIs—OAuth, Data Management, Model Derivative, and Design Automation—to build applications that are ready for this new era of automation and collaboration.
