At Autodesk University I had the chance to meet some fellow AutoCAD Bloggers and learn about a cool Autodesk initiative. Autodesk & Lenovo, teamed up to perform a, TV makeover show style, technology transformation for an Oregon Design Office - Alan Mascord Design Associates, Inc.
Lenovo provided new workstations, Autodesk supplied Building Design Suite software and their reseller, Ideate, Inc., supported this with training to bring Mascord design bang up to date with the latest in hardware & software. The transformation and its impact was covered in a series of short video clips. You can see Episode 1 below, or all of them on this Facebook page.
If you thought that should have been your office Autodesk are offering another Technology Makeover and you have until February 23, 2012 to enter. If you are located in the Unites States or Canada (as many of my readers are), work for a small company (less than 300 employees), use out-dated Autodesk software (2008 or older) and are interested in winning a technology makeover contest details and entry is via the AutoCAD Facebook Page*:
