Another Autodesk University, or AU as we all call it is in the books, and once again it was just me and 10,721 of my closest friends!
I will start by sharing AU2016 by the numbers (at least according to the Autodesk University Website).
This is my quick recap of my time experience with AU 2016, as well as all of the posts I’ve rounded up on AU2016 from everyone else that was there.
This year AU was busy for me as I had 4 classes and 1 repeat for a total of 5, find out the story behind all the classes here. While busy I did still manage to attend a few sessions, and take a quick spin around the exhibition hall on Tuesday night. They did things a little different this year (aside from being two weeks early) they had the “Big” party on Wednesday night instead of the normal Thursday night. It was a good time, as always lots of fun stuff to see and do, and only a short (or at least less than a long) walk from the Venetian. I was also lucky enough to get to Vegas a day early to take part in the Advanced Computational BIM workshop on Monday, which was great…but a LOT of info for 8 hours.
But we did find time during the 8 hours for a little fun!
I had 1 session on Tuesday, 3 on Wednesday and finished up with one last one on Thursday. I want to thank everyone that came to my sessions, I saw lots of familiar faces, some in multiple classes, as well as many new friends. I want to take a quick moment to say a special thank you to Kim, John and Jarod for taking time out of their AU to help with my 8:00 am FormIt 360 lab on Wednesday.
I also can’t forget Bill for using his website (BIMThoughts) to make sure everyone in the lab got their datasets!.
Four of my sessions are now available on AU online.
For the latest versions of the handouts, presentations, and datasets for all my sessions, including the labs, head to this Dropbox link
