Man, do I love this time of year! I really do look forward to attending SolidWorks World each year for a host of reasons, but the biggest one is the recharge it gives me after hanging with fellow SolidWorks geeks for 4 days. It’s always so cool to be with people who are as passionate about it as I am.
I write the same things every year when SolidWorks World rolls around: how I love the energy, the new tech, meeting new people, seeing old friends. I hate sounding like a broken record, but it’s all true, every year.
This year, SolidWorks’ new “face”, Rachel York, is working her butt off to get more people networking together. One of her ways is the “I Nerd Out For ____” button. Attendees just fill in the blank and pin it to their lanyard. Obviously, the hope here is that the filled in subject gets people talking together. We’ll have to see how well it works, but I’ve definitely seen a ton of people wearing the buttons.
Get your button, people!
Don’t forget, too, that a tweeted pic of you eating bacon, along with the hashtag #baconbrotherhood, gains you entry into the Bacon Brotherhood. Just remember to tag Ed Gebo or John Matrishon to get your badge.
More coming later, as soon as the cloud fully lifts from my mind. It was a late night (early morning?) last night.
