The 9th Annual CAD Manager’s Boot Camp at SolidWorks World 2013

SolidWorks World 2013 will be held January 20-23, 2013 at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin in Orlando, Florida.

CAD Manager's Boot Camp SWW2013

Each year since the SolidWorks World hosted in Boston, SolidWorks team have held the CAD Admin Bootcamp. This is an opportunity to discuss and learn more about how to manage SolidWorks and the hardware it runs on. Variety of topics (that’s why it’s really 4 hours long) are covered and members of support team available to answer questions.

Explore a wide range of topics and issues to help you effectively deploy and manage SolidWorks software. The goal of the camp is to show system administrators and IT personnel how they can use a combination of IT and CAD best practices, tools, and methodologies to reduce the total cost of ownership and maximize their investment in SolidWorks software.

At four hours, it’s a very long session, but its definitely worth it.  There are plenty of breaks, some refreshments at the back of the room, and you’ll get a chance to meet some of the attendees before the conference really gets going.  Pre-registration is recommended, but don’t worry – there will be plenty of room.

Bring lots of note paper.
