Autodesk has two birthdays one for the company founding and the other for when it was legally incorporated. These are in addition to the big product anniversary dates like AutoCAD, 3ds Max, Maya, Autodesk Inventor etc. So many significant Autodesk historical dates to keep track of.
Autodesk was founded on January 30th, 1982. Today April 26, 2013 marks the 31st birthday of Autodesk becoming a legal U.S. corporation.

I last met with Autodesk founder John Walker in 2007 at his home in Switzerland. What an amazing experience and discussion on the past and future of Autodesk and technology.
