SWW Speaker Spotlight – Ricky Jordan

Ricky Jordan has been around the SolidWorks Community for a longtime.  A former reseller AE, and current user group leader, blogger, and Twitterer (I can't believe I just wrote that), Ricky is one of those special SolidWorks users that spends a lot of time helping fellow users.

Ricky's Blogis one of the most popular SolidWorks related sites on the web.  The new layout is fantastic, and the blog is filled with a variety of tips in both text and video format, a gallery that showcases some of his work, and a download area where you can find models and presentations by Ricky.  In short, it's not just a blog, it's a user run support site.

The North Alabama SolidWorks User Group was in peril back in 2004, but Ricky came in and righted the ship.  NASWUG is now a vibrant, well organized, and well attended user group.  The bulk of the credit has to go to Ricky.

Ricky's SolidWorks World presentation sounds very interesting – PCB design utilizing SolidWorks and CircuitWorks.  I'm a former PCB designer myself, and a huge fan of CircuitWorks, so it's a session that's already on my list.  Even if it isn't something you deal with on a regular basis, there's a very good chance you'll learn something about SolidWorks anyway.

If you need any further incentive to attend Ricky's session, here's something that might interest you.  Ricky's wife Christy runs a very popular cooking blog – Southern Plate – and has graciously offered to send along some of her favorite goodies to Orlando.  If you're lucky enough, you might just get some before they're gone.
