#AU2022: Introducing the AutoCAD podcast with Marcus O’Brien


With Autodesk University back in person for 2022, we’ve been keeping in mind the fact that lots of our audience is following along at home around the globe, and it’s for that reason why we’ve decided to do something special this year.

VP of AutoCAD, Marcus O’Brien, will be hosting a podcast live from the AU show floor featuring some special guests covering all things AutoCAD. You’ll hear about everything from AU updates, to chats with Autodesk leadership, to the future of CAD. The podcast will give you a behind the scenes look into some of the most powerful features driving the tool you know and love.
