I’m in Kansas any more

I’m currently on my way to Kansas City, MO for the 52nd Annual Technical and Education Conference, organized by the American Design Drafting Association.

I had to get up early to get to the San Francisco airport for my flight to Kansas City.  This means I had to feed and walk my dog earlier in the morning.  He didn’t complain.  The morning air was crisp and refreshing.  A couple of ducks were waddling down the middle of the road as if they owned it.  My dog tried to run them off.  He didn’t see the jack rabbit sprinting across a grass field in a nearby park a few minutes later.  I’m still amazed that I get to see all this wildlife even though I live within of the vast Silicon Valley metropolis.  I haven’t yet spotted any larger animals, like mountain lions.  At times, the roving gangs of raccoons are the near second to that.

Anyway, I’m flying into Phoenix on my way to Kansas City.  There aren’t many direct flights from the San Francisco bay area to the heart of America, despite the fact there are three international airports within driving distance of my home.

I’ll be reporting on my trip to the conference here and on twitter at hashtag #atec11.  I’m sure that the ADDA will also be posting comments to hashtag #adda for their own updates.

If you happen to be at this conference, please don’t hesitate to introduce yourself to me.

As a drafter, mechanical designer and CAD engineer, I've been in the mechanical design field since 1991. For the first 8 years of my career, I was an AutoCAD professional. I utilized AutoLISP and many other AutoCAD customization features to streamline drafting activities for 6+ drafters and designers. I authored several custom functions, one of which was published in the March 1997 issue of Cadalyst Magazine. Since 1998, I've been used SolidWorks non-stop. I've worked to utilize the SolidWorks' user environment to simplify drafting and design activities for 20+ engineers. I've created this website to provide current information about SolidWorks from a variety of contributors. More recently, I am now employed by Dassault Systemes as SOLIDWORKS Sr. Product Definition Manager to improve drawing, annotation and MBD related areas.
