Using MindManager 2012 at Autodesk University 2011

Autodesk University has long been the unequaled destination to learn from some of the top presenters in the industry today. While such presentations are still a mainstay of the conference, Autodesk introduced a revolutionary new type of presentation to the roster several years ago. The folks at Autodesk like to call this special subset of

A Geek’s Gadget Guide to Autodesk University

Autodesk’s annual user conference, Autodesk University, will bring thousands of Autodesk product users to the Venetian Hotel and Resort in about a week.

Autodesk University 2010 Opens

What a difference one day makes! Today you could find a noticeably larger number of AU attendees wandering the hallways of Autodesk University 2010, especially as registration opened for the first time late this afternoon.

Arriving at Autodesk University 2010

Catch me on Dave Graveline’s Into Tomorrow radio show this weekend

image While at Autodesk University last week I had the opportunity to sit down with Dave Graveline, host of the popular technology radio show “Into Tomorrow.”  His 3-hour radio program airs on over 100 AM & FM radio stations around the U.S., on SIRIUS XM Satellite Radio, radio stations in Germany, Bermuda, New Zealand, Canada and several other sources including Mobile Broadcast Network, BeOS Radio, Sprint Radio, TiVo, CelleCast and many others – every weekend. As you may have guessed, this weeks show features his interviews from Autodesk University 2009.

Autodesk University & AUv 2009 classes added to AU Online

So it’s no secret that Autodesk University offers a class on nearly every conceivable topic related to Autodesk products.  Of course with such an expansive catalog comes the problem I’ve had every year I have attended AU.  That problem? Simple, trying to pick only 1 class per time bracket.  During the conference there’s simply more great classes being offered than there is time for those great classes.

AUGI Board of Directors Election

If you attended the AUGI Annual Meeting Wednesday evening at Autodesk University, you learned AUGI has an exciting year ahead of it.  Perhaps the most exciting announcement was the return of AUGI CAD Camps.  More details should be out soon, however you can read the AUGI CAD Camp press release from September.  Outside of CAD

Autodesk University 2009 Begins

If you’ve ever attended AU in the past you know the first day is an insane series of events. Much of that is kicked off by the always impressive General Session & Keynote. While this years session wasn’t on the scale of the 360 degree rendering of Washington DC, it was just as bleeding edge,

Arriving at AU 2009

Hard to believe, but it’s that time of year again. You know when CAD geeks of all design disciplines come together in the fabulous Las Vegas, NV for this little event Autodesk likes to call Autodesk University. Even though AU doesn’t technically start until tomorrow, there’s still plenty of AU related events to take part

AU 2009 – General Registration Open

image

Autodesk University, It’s that one time of year you can talk about CAD for an entire week, and not be considered a complete dork (partial dork is still an option)! Today marks the commencement of general registration for Autodesk University 2009. If you have plans on attending this year’s conference, you’ll certainly want to get your registration in ASAP. Why the urgency?

  • Discounted Registration: If you register now, you’ll qualify for the discounted “Early-Bird” rate.
  • Hotel Accommodations: The earlier you register, the better your chances of getting a room in the host hotel (Mandalay Bay). Not that the other conference hotels are bad, but as a matter of convenience YOU WANT TO BE IN THE HOST HOTEL!
  • Class Selection: If you can think of it (and it’s related to CAD), there’s probably a class on it at AU! Popular classes fill up fast, so you’ll want to register early to get the best class selection.

Just in case you’re looking for some great classes to attend at this year’s conference, I’d love to see you at any of the three classes I’ll be presenting.
