I’m finally on my way to SolidWorks World 2011. Its been almost year since SolidWorks World 2010, but it sure doesn’t feel like it. Right now, I’m in the San Diego, CA airport waiting for the next plane on my way to San Antonio, TX.
SolidWorks Corp provides me with Press access to SolidWork World. Though some of my expenses are not covered, they do cover my basic hotel costs for this trip, as well as some ground transportation. My Press pass also includes normal items given to all full conference pass attendees, such as some meals and swag.
This article was published from my Android smartphone over Sprint network. I love that I’m not tied to wifi hotspots, even when they are present. Also, I’m not bringing a big and bulkly laptop this year. No more 20 pound monster on my shoulder. Instead, I’m bringing an inexpensive and light weight notebook.
Over this upcoming week, I’ll blog mostly about SolidWorld World, but there may also be an article or two about some personal experiences that aren’t directly related to the conference (like details about my visits to tourist spots).
In general, I’m going to try to have a slower pace this year, to attend more breakout sessions. This means that I may spread out some of my SolidWorks World articles over two or three weeks.
