AutoCAD Architecture Usability Study

Well, I've been invited to a usability for AutoCAD Architecture while I'm at AU 2008. I'm really looking forward to the opportunity to relay feedback I've gotten over the years to Autodesk. However, I can't remember everything I've come across. If you would like to sign up for a usability study, drop me a note in the comments section and I can forward you the contact info for the rep at Autodesk conducting these surveys to get you added to the list. You don't have to be attending AU to get on the list either.

AU 2008 UnConference

I will be hosting a session for one of the UnConference topics at AU this year. The title is:
UN306-3 Beyond Implementation Tools and Techniques That No CAD Manager Can Live Without

An UnConference is a different way to present a topic to those attending. Everyone sits facing each other and instead of a straightforward lecture, it starts out with a brief introduction by myself and is then turned over to you, the attendees. Its up to everyone to add to the topic, ask questions and answer questions. I hope to see a good turn out with familiar faces and some new ones too!

What are you doing at AU 2008?

I don’t know what I was thinking when I started signing up for stuff at AU this year...

I have the following on my plate in addition to attending classes.
  • 1 class to teach
  • 5 labs where I am acting as a Lab Assistant
  • 1 Conducting an AU UnConference session
  • 1 ATC 20 Tips in 20 Mins on 3ds MAX Design
At this rate I'll be happy to at least get my AUGI Beer Mug at the annual Beer Bust.
