Arrived at Anaheim and ready!

Fifty-one weeks ago, SolidWorks World 2009 concluded with the announcement that SolidWorks World 2010 would be in Anaheim, CA (aka Disneyland Land). Since then, time has flown by so quickly, it seems like the 2009 convention in Florida was only a couple months ago. But, there are lessons learned since last year.

As a SolidWorks Blogger who is invited to SolidWorks World as press, I should not expect the luxury of attending very many breakout sessions. I will still try to attend as many as I can, though I am double and triple booked for many time slots. On the other hand, I do get see behind the scenes. The press room is an interesting place. Also, I get to freely interact with other users, vendors, VARs and SolidWorks employees.

People recognize me. I would like to apologize in advance to those that I do not recognize at first. I am not good at remembering faces; and notoriously bad at remembering names.

The only winkle so far is that I forgot my business cards! (I am also notoriously bad at remembering to bring my business cards.) Thankfully, my wife will be sending them to me tomorrow. Hopefully, I’ll receive them before the end of the conference.

I’m looking forward to a lot of things this year at SolidWorks World 2010. Seeing James Cameron; presenting as part of the Stump the Chumps II panel (and giving out tons of swag at that breakout session…thanks to both SolidWorks Corp and Hawk Ridge Systems); seeing new game-changing inventions (at the Partner Pavilion and highlighted in the General Sessions); meeting (and reconnecting) with friends; and learning something new. I try to cover has much of this as I can in the coming days.

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.
