Let's Get it Started!

Although there have already been plenty of activities surrounding SolidWorks World 2010, the event officially begins today at 7:00am.  The registration area is one of my favorite places to hang out (in fact, it's one of my SWW duties) and I'll be there most of the day.

Saturday was full of chance meetings just about everywhere I went - Bloggers, media members, SolidWorks Partners, User Group Leaders, and old (and new) friends.  Today will bring more of the same, but on a grander scale.  It's great to watch the attendees as they get registered, pick up their swag, and then wander around the conference center to get the lay of the land before breakout sessions start tomorrow.

Today's big event is Greg Jankowski's CAD Managers Boot Camp, an intense four hour session that covers..well, everything.  Anywhere from 400 to 600 people will attend and they'll be glad they did.

This evening the Partner Pavilion will open with the first evening reception, and then it's non-stop tech for the rest of the week.

Let's get it started.
