Sixteen Years of Tips and Tricks – Phil Sluder

According to my records, there are 67 people that have attended every single SolidWorks World conference – 31 reseller employees, 2 members of the press, 7 exhibitors, 21 SolidWorks employees, and 6 SolidWorks users.  I consider myself fortunate to be included in the list.

There’s one name on the list that really stands out – the only SolidWorks user (and maybe the only person ever) to not only attend every conference, but to present at each one as well.

Phil Sluder

SluderforPostI was there for Phil’s first Tips and Tricks session way back in 1999 (Palm Springs).  The room was packed – all seats taken, every spot on the walls holding a “leaner”, and dozens of people outside the door and into the hallway trying to catch a glimpse of the session.  I remember being blown away by the stuff that Phil showed that day, and I’m constantly amazed at some of the tips he works up year after year.

This year Phil has a 90 minute slot Tuesday afternoon.  Session selection shows that its already the second most requested session, and we’ll make sure the room is big enough to accommodate everyone.
