This year at AU, the AutoCAD product team is giving away pizes for the best app/plugin for AutoCAD.  


Prior to Autodesk University, we're hosting a virtual code-fest to produce apps/plugins for AutoCAD using the ObjectARX and/or .NET APIs: it's called APPHACK @ AU.  It's open to any ADN member who can produce a working app/plugin for AutoCAD. The event culminates in a live demo at Autodesk University in Las Vegas on November 26, 2012. Simply submit your app and a demo video and you're in the running for some nice prizes. But hurry - the deadline for submissions is 11:59pm Pacific on Wednesday, 14 November, 2012.


Submit something you already have or write something new.  Just do it soon so you're in the running for one of the great prizes!  The theme for the event is Connecting AutoCAD to the Cloud - entries that most closely adhere to the theme will earn advanced placement. Check out Autodesk Exchange Apps for examples.


First prize is US$5000, Second is US$2000, and Third is US$1000.

Ten finalists will be awarded iPad Minis.


In order to win, you must be present to perform a live demo of your app in Las Vegas on November 26. You do not need to be registered for AU to compete.

This post is just for the programming contest before AU 2012, from an official Autodesk employee. If you are an ADN member and have an app/idea and want to perform it in public, you may consider it.
