Its that time of the year again. Shaan Hurley of "Between the Lines" is holding his 3rd annual holiday product donation for students. This little giveaway is not only for AutoCAD, but for other Autodesk products suck as Revit Structure, Inventor and many others.
About 2 years back for Shaan's first annual product donation and give away I put in a nomination for a friend of my from college & high school. At that time, he had just injured him self working at a sporting goods store and suffered from a slipped disk in his back at only 20 years old. Well he was bed ridden from working for about 6 months and went through many surgery's to repair. I submitted a short little story explaining my friends situation and Shaan graciously acknowledged by sending him a seat of AutoCAD 2004. My friend was able to learn AutoCAD while injured and bedridden, studying the help book and was able to get his first drafting job only 4 months after being approved to begin working again. Now after a year, he's just gotten on board with our firm MKM & Associates and is continuing to improve each day. Just a short little success story from this donation.
So, if you have a student or know someone who could really benefit form one of these free NFR copies of Autodesk products, make sure to jump over to Shaan's site to get your nomination in.
