My original intent was to blog about each of our “What’s New in SOLIDWORKS 2009” stops. I am going to cheat and combine the Indianapolis and Evansville shows into one blog. Mostly because they both were pretty much the same.
The shyness of engineers has often been the punchline of many jokes. This reputation was certainly held up at these two rollouts. Most of the guys there acted as if they were attending the readings of their long lost great aunt’s last will and testament -they were all hoping to get something pretty cool but didn’t want to show any reaction for fear of offending their other relatives. Come on guys! These rollouts are supposed to be fun! Give the new negative value in a sketch dimension a little cheer! The AE’s have been doing these shows for weeks it is really nice to get a little feedback from the users.
Come to these rollouts to learn and to share. Don’t underestimate the power of networking.
Vik Vedantham really dressed it up these two days – nice watch, cuff links and neatly pressed clothes. Ladies, you missed quite a show!
We had some groupies today in Indianapolis! The event was at Indiana Wesleyan University. Several college students were standing outside the room today. Some said they were admiring the huge plate of chocolate chip cookies – I think they were checking out the new 2009 features.
Off to Columbus, Ohio! This is the one I have been looking forward to. It is going to be well attended and the group is pretty close. There is always cheering for the best new features.
