Learning from Live Development @ AU: The AutoCAD Live Lab
/ Amelia Mendez
At Autodesk University 2015 the AutoCAD team had their first ever Live Lab, developing a prototype in front of customers on site, and welcoming their unfiltered feedback.
At AU 2015 the AutoCAD Live Lab not only validated research about Autodesk customers but many of the architectural assumptions that call for a cross platform product plan. A live lab not only can bring insight into the user experience but also the demands of a modern web architecture.
