So on a whim I looked into some opportunities to volunteer with the Autodesk group. Apparently they have not heard of the noob and my special abilities of destroying grammar and the written language so until the discover my true identity, I'm in like a dirty shirt!
I signed up for their customer council and it has been a fantastic opportunity try to catch a glimpse of the nuts and bolts of this wonderful program. So far its kept me running; I've spent a lot of time in awe of the amount of information I'm completely oblivious to. I wish I could share some of what I've seen but we cant kiss and tell. All I can say is that its awesome for some one as green as me to be able to play a role (how ever miniscule it may be) in shaping the industry of tomorrow. So exciting!
