My SWW16 Agenda: CAD Manager's Boot Camp


One of my favorite parts of SOLIDWORKS World each year is deciding on my objectives and choosing my sessions. And my backup sessions. And my backup backup sessions. This year, I thought I’d share with you some of the sessions I chose and why.

First up, the CAD Manager’s Boot Camp. This session runs half a day (from 1pm – 5pm), and it’s important to note that it happens on Sunday. My first ever boot camp was in San Antonio at SOLIDWORKS World 2011, and it knocked my boots off. If you’re the one your colleagues turn to with install questions, data management questions, troubleshooting questions, etc – this is absolutely the session for you.
