A Year in Review – 2018 BILT World Tour

Late in 2017, I set a goal for myself to speak at all 4 BILT events in 2018. As I look back on 2018 I’m happy to say I was able to reach my goal and speak at all 2018 BILT Conferences! I can also say that it was way more work than it seemed like it would be in Fall 2017.

AU 2017 – Submissions are Closed Now it’s Time to Vote!

This year Autodesk University is changing things up a little when it comes to how submissions for AU 2017 are selected. This year they are publishing all 2,257 abstracts that got submitted on or before the May 17th deadline. You can head over the Autodesk University Website to review all submissions and vote for the ones you like here.

Now to be clear – voting isn’t the only means by which submissions get selected for AU 2017 but rather another tool for the selection committee to use in ensuring the best lineup. This can be seen in the verbiage used on the voting page:

Come Play BIMGO at #AU2016

If you are heading to Autodesk University in Vegas in a few days in (Nov. 15th – 17th) then you want to clear your Tuesday evening schedule so you can come and play BIMGO!!


What is “BIMGO” you ask, well its the BIM version of Bingo of course. The idea is to get a BIMGO card and keep track of the words said during the BIMThoughts podcast recording. As words on your card are said you mark them off, extra points if you have a Bingo dauber…


or a lucky troll.


The game will take place during a special AU recording of the BIMThoughts Podcast at the Enscape Booth (2763) in the exhibition hall. The recording will take place Tuesday, Nov. 15th starting @ 6:30 pm and going to about 7:10 pm. After all the BIMGO fun is over, we will move the party over to the IMAGINiT Booth (2917) where the prizes will be drawn and awarded @ 8:00 pm.

All you need to play is a business card (used for draws later) and to be at the Enscape booth by 6:30 on Tuesday to get your BIMGO card.

The BIMGO cards are limited so show up early to not miss out on all the fun!


BIMGO is sponsored by the great folks at:

See you all there on Tuesday!

When does 22 = 4? Why At Autodesk University 2016 of Course


The AU 2016 acceptance emails came out at the end of last week and I was lucky enough to receive one again this year! I was surprised, maybe even a little shocked, to read that I had been accepted for 4 sessions! Maybe I got 4 because AU classes are divided into four types: Instructional Demo, Hands-on Lab, Roundtable, and Industry Talk and I have a class for each type.
