Autodesk University 2013

As I sit here at home on New Year’s day I was reflecting on all of the experiences I had last year and one of the most rewarding was speaking at Autodesk University 2013. This was my second year speaking at the conference and I was honored to be selected to present again.

My class was named Mighty Macros: Powerful Commands to Pump up Productivity. I submitted 5 proposals back in March of 2013. I really wanted to teach my linetype class again but when this class was selected I was pleasantly surprised. What a fun class! I just may have needed more than 60 minutes since some of the comments were I went a bit too fast. I was selected to speak at 2:30 on the last day of the conference which increased my anxiety level a bit but when the time came I was very calm. I had over 125 people show up and many stayed after to discuss the class. Maybe it was the peanut MnM’s I passed out 🙂


I am very excited to find that my class was recorded this year.  I have provided the link to the class where you can find the video and all of the class materials I speak about.


As I have mentioned before I have always believed that we learn the most from each other. The users are the ones who come up with all those tips and tricks you cannot find in books. I look back at all of the work I put in to prepare for this event and I thought, “ would I do this again”?  How could I not, it’s what I love to do and the possibly teaching again next year and getting better at helping the CAD community grow and change is an opportunity I cannot seem to pass up. That being said, I hope to see you next year at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. I already have some great ideas for class topics and look forward to sharing those with all of you.

Happy New Year to all of my new friends and to those of you I have not yet met.
