Shaan Hurley's Autodesk blog


I have been with Autodesk over 21 years, and two of my 3 children have grown up only knowing only Autodesk. Autodesk was founded back in 1982 and for most of that time we have had offices that allowed dogs in the employee office with some rules to assure safety and good behavior.

37 years later, Autodesk is a rare technology company that is still around, innovating, evolving, and helping our customers.
