Can’t attend SolidWorks World 2009? Here’s something for you.

SolidWorks World

SolidWorks World 2009 starts in six days, and we know how excited many of you are to get to Orlando. However, we've also heard from a number of you that you can't attend for one reason or another. This goes out to you.

While we can't bring the complete SolidWorks World experience to everyone, we can bring part of it.Starting on Monday, I'll be posting video from the morning general sessions, as well as four of the most popular breakout sessions. We can't show you Jeff's talk with Sir Richard Branson, and I'd probably get in trouble if I posted the What's New segment on Wednesday, but you'll get pretty much everything else. And as for the breakouts…well…you'll just have to check back and see. I'm going to get everything up just as fast as I can (gotta add a few hours for editing and uploading), so you should be able to actually see things that happened Monday on Monday.

I'm not the only one who'll be posting updates though. Here's a quick recap of some other things you should definitely check out:

  • The Community News section of the SolidWorks World website will be rolling up every blog post that mentions SolidWorks World and every tweet with the #SWW09 hashtag.
  • Lou Gallo over at SolidWorks Heard has set up a live coverage section on his site, using the Cover It Live app some of the guys used in Barcelona. Definitely worth checking out for up-to-the-second commentary.
  • We've set up a Flickr group that everyone can post photos to. If you're taking pictures, tag 'em and post 'em.

So be sure to bookmark this blog or add it to your RSS reader and get ready for the SolidWorks World goodness. And if there's anything you'd like to see, let me know. My schedule is already pretty full, but I'll see what I can do.

And don't forget–this Friday is the last day to register online. You only have a few days to make those last-minute pleas to the boss, so don't wait.
