image image6 Talk to anyone who has attended an Autodesk University in the past and you will most certainly hear praises sung over the top-notch training available during the conference. Having the privilege to attend AU 2007 this past November I too can say it really is a phenomenal experience. If you haven’t considered attending in the past, now is the time to begin bugging your boss. While you’re dropping a line to your boss, you’ll also want to jump over to the AU 2008 Course Survey.

In the past speakers submitted their course ideas, and Autodesk essentially made the call as to the courses to be offered during the conference. This year Autodesk has chosen to do things a little differently. Since AU is in fact a user conference, our friends at Autodesk have put much of the course selection in your hands (the users). You have until this Saturday, May 3, 2008 to cast your vote for the classes you would like to see at AU 2008!

To that end I chose to submit three proposals for AU 2008. As you’re making your selections, I’d appreciate your vote for any number of my proposals:

  • CAD Management and IT – Human Management: A Non-Technical Approach to CAD Management:

    Looking to the psyche of engineers, and how to overcome CADD; Computerized Attention Deficit Disorder 

  • Civil Engineering (AutoCAD Civil 3D) – Power to the Parcel:

    A hands on start-to-finish lab on how to take a boundary survey and turn it into a finished parcel layout.

  • General Design Sessions (AutoCAD, AutoCAD LT) – 2008 AutoCAD Bloggies:

    All the excitement of the Grammys, just without the expensive wardrobe, and flash bulbs. We’ll take a look at some of the best blogs from the past year.
