Old stodgy CAD conferences got you down? Can’t remember the difference between this year’s conference and last year’s? Moving around make you feel like part of a cattle stampede? Curious about how the rest of the world lives?
Maybe it’s time to try out a Solid Edge conference. You know how some CAD people go around bragging about how many conferences they’ve been to, or that “I was at Palm Springs”? Maybe your CAD vendor was really exciting when they were an underdog and more focused on current customers than future customers. A Solid Edge conference gives you that feeling that you’re getting in on the ground floor of something that’s growing. Plus, there’s an incentive for ‘Works users to attend :
- It’s way less expensive (maybe even free if you qualify)
- They aren’t afraid to talk about the future
- You can learn about how to use history and direct editing together
- They promise not to try to sell you Catia
- Really – Disney – AGAIN? Covington Kentucky is WAY more fun than Disney.
- What better place to be a virgin, than in a place called “KY”?
- We promise, the special event will NOT include a reunion of Sonny & Cher.
- Karsten Newbury (general manager of Solid Edge) will speak French if you ask him to, or German, or Italian, or Spanish, or Portuguese, but he also speaks English in a way that Americans can understand. And he doesn’t use corporate doublespeak, or insane metaphors about cloud experience.
- Dan Staples, the guy in charge of the direction of the software, is an approachable and personable guy. He’s got reasons for doing things that he can and will explain to you. In English. More than that, he’s got a sense of humor, and he’s smart. Plus, in case you start feeling starved for a conspiracy theory, his initials are DS.
So here’s the deal for Solid Edge virgins: Solid Edge will waive the conference fee for the first five qualified individuals to sign up to participate in a one hour usability session. Qualifications: A minimum of two years using SolidWorks in a production environment; no more than two hours prior hands-on experience with Solid Edge.
