Well what can I say after such an awesome 4 days here in Vegas! Big thanks to Solidworks for the great event that was put on here. The technical presentations were top knotch, and the presenters were very knowledgeable. The offsite event was a lot of fun, and the morning sessions were outstanding.
The biggest thing I am comming away with after my first SW World, is how passionate the user community is. You can see it in the participation of the session attendees, and hear it in conversations at lunch, or while waiting for a session to begin. Very eveident also is the desire of the Solidworks Corporation to provide a product that is the best it can be. The passion for design that was discussed here, is very alive and well.
There arent enough words to encourage everyone that didnt make it, to try to go next year. They are already throwing around numbers of4000-4500 for next year!!! Registration usually begins around august where you can get in for $695. When you think about the cost of training at a VAR, the $695 is a great deal.
I would also like to encourage everyone to visit the usergroup siteThese meeting are very informative, very informative, and most of them are free!! If there isnt one in your area, why not start one??
Like I said, its been a great 4 days here, and im already thinking about next years event. A couple of hints would be to arive the day before the event begins, and stay the night of the last day so you dont have to haul your luggage around with you. Also if your not to excited about going alone, there were plenty of us here this year. I can assure you that you will meet lots of people and make lots of new friends.
So thanks for the replies to my other posts, and thanks for letting me be your inside source for all the happeneings here. I think next year I might even just get a normal blog site so I can post some pics and stuff.
I look forward to meeting more of you guys in New Orleans next year, and I look forward to a great year of sharing information here in the newsgroup!
